Rattlesnake Bar, view from last years swim start taken 3/6/14
Mother Nature has finally come through providing much needed water to quench California’s thirst. Though still much more water is needed for California, it appears that as of right now we have enough water for Auburn Triathlon to keep the swim course in the familiar waters of Rattlesnake Bar, whew!!!!! This photo was taken 3/6/14 and chances are it will only fill more by race day. .
However…. if not, we have options!
We are pleased to announce that we have 3 other swim venue options to choose from in addition to the original swim venue, Rattlesnake Bar. One of these options is Negro Bar State Park down by Lake Natomas in Folsom State Recreation Area. This swim venue is guaranteed to have water race day despite what Mother Nature bestows upon us from now to then with no long walk to the water!
If by chance we do need to change the swim venue, the bike course for all 4 events will be modified to accommodate, the run courses and T2/Finish line will remain the same.
As winter continues and spring arrives the story will unfold and we will have more nitty gritty details to tell. But until then, we are moving forward with all our energy focused on the original swim venue so keep those goggles on, keep swimming those laps and be ready for the 12th Annual Auburn Triathlon, May 18th, 2014!!!!!
