Welcome to the Clemson Triathlon!
The Clemson Triathlon moves into its twenty first season and is a great early season tester becoming a favorite among southeastern area triathletes. It is also held on the campus of world famous Clemson University.
The Swim is a one loop 750 meter course which is always wetsuit legal with water temperatures in the low to mid 70’s. A clockwise rectangular shape swim course with start waves of less than 100 athletes per wave. Depending on the wind there can be some chop with little to no current.
The bike is a one loop 11 mile course in quiet rural roads. There is one short but steep grade with the rest of the course being best described as rolling, but on the more hilly side of rolling. Road surfaces are good and traffic is light. Turns are marked with orange pavement arrows and orange directional signs. Police and volunteers will man each intersection.
The run is an out and back 5K course onto Clemson University campus and the East Beach Dike, providing one of the most amazing views of the Clemson area you will ever see.
