SISD Aquatic Center/Student Activities Complex
400 yard swim – 12 mile bike – 5K run
Eagle in the Sun Triathlon begins with a 400-yard swim in the Socorro ISD Aquatic Center. Participants then ride on a mostly flat 12-mile bike loop and run 5K run through the nearby neighborhood. The race ends in the Socorro ISD stadium, where athletes enjoy a victory lap around the football field before crossing the finish line.
El Paso’s premier multi-sport event, Eagle in the Sun Triathlon has introduced thousands to their first triathlon. Now entering its 6th year, the race is a favorite for new and experienced athletes alike and welcomes relay teams in addition to individual competitors.
Eagle in the Sun Triathlon is USAT-sanctioned; USAT rules apply.
All athletes must be members of USA Triathlon to compete. If you do not have an annual membership, you may purchase a one-day pass for $12 during registration.
Athletes must be 12 years old or older to compete in the individual category. Children under 12 may participate as swimmers or runners on relay teams, but they may NOT participate in the cycling portion of the triathlon.
To ensure that athletes have a great race and are correctly seeded for the swim, Eagle in the Sun Triathlon participants are required to update their swim times in mid-August. Registered athletes will receive instructions by email.
Athletes who do not update their swim times will be placed in the second wave following the first wave of all athletes with updated times.
Every athlete must pick up his or her own race packet. On-site packet pick-up will require photo proof of identity (driver’s license, passport, etc).
