Race Details & Schedule

Water Conditions and Temperature:

Water Conditions at Lake Natoma State Park are always incredible; this will probably be the cleanest water you swim in all year, from the Sierra snow fall runoff.  The water however is a bit cold and a wetsuit is advised.

Preliminary Wave Starts:

Wave 1: 6:30 am Men & Women – 34 and under

Confirmed Triathletes:

All athletes must arrive at least 1.5 hours early. This year's event will begin promptly at 6:30 AM.

Bike Check:

USA Productions highly recommends getting your bike checked and tuned prior to the race.  Folsom Bike will also be on hand race morning in transition and out on course for bike support.

Body Marking:

All athletes will be body marked on arms and calf. Body marking will be done race morning only. You will find a volunteer tent in the transition area for body marking. It is the racer's responsibility to get their body marked.

Transition Area:

The transition area is first-come, first-serve. The transition area is very well marked with signage. The only designated racks are for Triathlon Clubs and Teams as well as Elite/Pro racers.

For all August Folsom Triathlons we will be using the Folsom Canal Trail as part of the bike course, this beautiful trail will be a safe right of way for the success of this event. We have attached some pictures below so you can see some unique elements of the trail and the water way it runs along.  You will pass over one railroad track that is unused and will be covered as well as traveling through a tunnel that goes under Hwy 50.

Tunnel (lights will be on and working during the event): Click Here

There will be 2 aid stations on the bike course providing water and Accelerade hydration drink.

Mile 17: Water, Accelerade Hydration, Accel Gel and Clif Blocks
Mile 38: Water, Accelerade Hydration, Accel Gel and Clif Blocks

 Roads will not be closed but escorting of all traffic on White Rock and Grantline will occur. There will be a lane closure on Folsom Blvd, Iron Point, and Prairie City.

Drafting: Drafting is illegal at the Folsom International Triathlon. We ask your help in doing the best we can to help enforce the "NO DRAFTING" rules of USA Triathlon. You, the athlete, are the simplest and best way to keep the bike course safe and draft free. We will have USA Triathlon Officials out on the bike course, but you personally need to help the sport and yourself by simply backing out of packs, slowing down or verbally mentioning to other athletes not to draft.


13.1 Mile Run Course:

This 2 loop 13.1 mile run course will be your stomping ground for this half marathon run.

There will be water, soda, and Accelerade hydration drink provided every mile on the run course, with Accel gel shots and Clif blocks & bars at all aid stations. The best volunteers in the world will be cheering you on and supporting your accomplishment.

Chip Timing:

This race will be timed using a chip timing system. Upon checking in you will receive a chip that is traditionally worn on the ankle. It is the athlete's responsibility to wear the chip during the entire race. If you do not wear the chip you will NOT be timed.

The Athlete is also 100% totally responsible for the return of the chip. Our waiver will have a disclaimer that must be signed that states you, the athlete, must return the chip or be billed accordingly by our timing company. It is the racer's responsibility to make sure that if you cannot attend the race, the chip will be returned within 7 days to USA Productions at the following address.  If the timing chip is not returned the participant will be charged $30.

USAT Sanctioning:

USAT provides comprehensive insurance coverage to sanctioned events. The coverage provides liability coverage to protect the race director, sponsors, volunteers, officials, and participants. The athlete excess medical coverage protects each participant for the day of the event.

Athlete Excess Medical: When athletes purchase a USAT annual license or one day permit, a portion of those fees cover the cost to provide them with excess medical insurance. This coverage only extends to their participation in an USA Triathlon sanctioned event and is only available after the injured party has filed with any primary insurance policies.

Event Liability: USAT provides comprehensive liability insurance coverage to sanctioned events. The USA Triathlon policy automatically covers USA Triathlon race directors, sponsors, volunteers, officials, and participants while participating in sanctioned events. Single-event permit can only be purchased through the race director and is $12 at packet pickup or the day of the event. USA Triathlon does not sell single-day permits.

Parking & Directions

Event parking options:

Nimbus Flat State Park: California State Parks has now raised their fees at Nimbus Flat State Park and if you want to park right next to the venue the parking fee will be $10 per car. Please bring exact change, the park staff attendant will not have change available.

Fish Hatchery: As we did last year because of the fee increase for parking we have free parking available at the Fish Hatchery that is across the street from the Aquatic Center and about a 10 minute walk from the venue. This will also be used for overflow if the Nimbus Flat parking lot is full.
