Here are the details of his race:
Sprint -- 750 meters; Olympic -- 1500 meters. Triangular course marked with yellow/orange buoys. Deep water start; Water temperatures will be in the upper 60's/low 70's so wetsuits are highly recommended.

Sprint: 12 miles, Olympic: 24 miles. The bike course has some hills to challenge, and flats and downhills to build speed. This course travels through the park on a lane restricted to the race participants only, and on HWY-89 for approximately 3 miles (open to traffic-- protected with Signs, Cones and Highway Patrol). Sprint is one loop, Olympic is two loops.
Sprint: 5k, Olympic 10k. The course offers spectacular views of the lake and Glen Canyon dam, and surrounds you with the red rocks of Powell. Aid Stations will be set up for particpants at miles 1 and 2, as well as near the transition area for the sprint distance, Miles 1,2, 4, and 5 for the Olympic distance.
Good job Derek!
