CASTLE CREEK TRIATHLON
Sprint & Olympic
Triathlon, Duathlon & Aquabike

Welcome to the Inaugural Castle Creek Triathlon!! The Castle Creek Triathlon offers a sprint and Olympic distance triathlon and duathlon for both individuals and relays. For non-runners we also have a sprint and Olympic aquabike. We are hopeful to bring this event to Arizona. However, we are prepared for yet another event cancellation due to the ever-evolving COVID situation. We will offer entry-fee refunds if the event is cancelled. At this time, we are working with both Active and USAT to offer refundable fees as well. Please note that there will be no finisher medals or awards for the Castle Creek Triathlon 2020. There will also be no water stations on the course for your health and safety. As such, athletes will need be prepared and bring enough fluids on both the bike and run to fuel their race.
