The Desert’s Edge Tri Festival brings you two days of racing, a weekend of camping with other triathletes and their fans, and a fun end to the Colorado Tri Season. Desert’s Edge weekend includes your choice of DIRT Tri, DIRT SUP, or DIRT Sprint Tri on Saturday, your choice of ROAD Olympic, ROAD SUP, or ROAD Sprint Tri on Sunday!

*REPEATING FROM 2019: DIRT SUP & ROAD SUP (Saturday and Sunday respectively): We added a new category in 2019 to include those that are not completely ready for the hardcore triathlon sport’s part of swim OR that just plain don’t like swimming, but do love SUP, biking, and running – this is for you! We’re offering only sprint distances of both days for the SUP category this year to see how it flows and how much interest we get. We’re excited to bring this to the table this year… spread the word – recruit that friend of yours that’s always said, “but I can’t swim”…

Camping is available right at the race site, just 200 yards from the start and finish line. Enjoy great post-race food, and a fun final tri weekend of the 2019 season. All just a few short hours from Denver and Salt Lake City!

Your registration includes:
Free pre-event clinic / Q&A session with multi-sport athletes (see schedule for details);
Deserts Edge Triathlon visor hat* made by Headsweats;
Meal ticket to any of the food vendors on site;
Finisher glass (you must finish to take this home!);
Chance for a podium medal;
Plenty of goodies from our sponsors;
A chance for some post-race raffle goods and podium prizes!

* Register by 05/30/2020 to be guaranteed a hat!
