USAT Sanctioned Race 
T1 & T2 Long Lake Park

Start time 8 AM


Just Tri is proud to present the 2018 Black Hills Triathlon (BHT).  This is one of the best Triathlons in the Pacific Northwest and for the past 5 years the BHT has been a premier sprint distance triathlon.  The event will be a safe and well-organized race of the highest standards and quality.

The Black Hills Sprint Triathlon and Duathlon is USAT Sanctioned and all participants will receive USAT qualification points.  USAT sanctioning ensures that this race is held to the highest Triathlon race standards.  

This triathlon is part of the Triple Threat Series. If you are interested in participating in 3 fantastic triathlons this summer, register here for the Triple Threat instead of signing up for each one individually.

As a community event, we are proud to have the support of both business owners and residents and we are dedicated to representing our community in a positive manner.  Our race is uniquely suited to both the beginning triathlete and the seasoned competitor and features a ½ mile swim in beautiful Long Lake, a 12 mile bike ride and a 3.1 mile road run.  The Duathlon is a ~3 mile run, 12 mile bike and a 3 mile run.

Click here to register for the Duathlon!!

Some of the changes from last year:

The bike course is basically the same route, except is 12 miles, not 17
Both Transition points will be at Long Lake Park, not the Fairgrounds Barn
No day before bike drop is necessary!

Transition will be set up by 6AM, come early to get set up the morning of the race!

We are planning for a rolling start - your time starts when you enter the water!

All safety precautions will be just as they were last year or better!  The Black Hills Triathlon has always been a great event and this year will be the same!

Both the Triathlon and the Duathlon will be USAT Sanctioned courses.  All athletes must be USAT members or can purchase a 1 day membership for $15.00.  Athletes can purchase this at packet pick up. (Location TBD).  ID must be presented at Packet pick up. There are NO refunds. Transfer policy: Athlete circumstances will be evaluated on a case by case basis and may be allowed to transfer their entry to next years Black Hills Triathlon.


We'll see you on the Course!
