Wave Swim Start

The Tri Chewacla Sprint Triahtlon swim will take place at Lake Chewacla inside the Chewacla State Park. This event will feature a wave start, which means that athletes will start in groups of 10-40 and swim a 500 yard course around the lake. Each athlete will have a timing chip on their ankle, so their individual time will not start until their wave begins.


1st, 2nd, and 3rd place awards will be presented to the winners of each age group.


For those who prefer to race one or two segments of Tri Chewacla, Tri Auburn is offering a relay option.  Relay teams will consist of two or three person teams where each member will complete one or two segments of the event and “pass the baton” to the next member in the transition area. There are no age groups for the relay division, relay teams will compete for the top 3 fastest relay teams.

Each participant will receive an event t-shirt, swim cap, and a packet filled with sponsor gifts and promotions. Every finisher will receive a finisher’s medal.
