USA Triathlon Age Group Nationals Coming to Omaha
12 Aug, 2016
The USA Triathlon Age Group National Championships are set for Saturday, Aug. 13, and Sunday, Aug. 14, in Omaha, Nebraska, at Levi Carter Park.
USA Triathlon's Age Group Nationals has been held annually since 1983 and features two national championship races for athletes ages 15 to 80-plus. The Olympic-Distance National Championships covering a 1,500-meter swim, 40-kilometer bike, 10-kilometer run course will begin at 7:30 a.m. CT on Saturday, Aug. 13. The Sprint National Championships will follow at 7:30 a.m. CT on Sunday, Aug. 14, in which athletes will complete a 750m swim, 20k bike and 5k run.
The event regularly welcomes more than 4,000 competitors from all 50 states and Washington, D.C., and the economic impact from the last three years in Milwaukee averaged more than $10 million. The size of the race field has more than tripled since 2010, and now Age Group Nationals is consistently among the top-five largest triathlons in the United States.
The Omaha community is encouraged to come out and support the competitors and experience the excitement of multisport. Admission to the races is free to all spectators. Volunteer spots are also still available and those interested may register here.
