The Gold Nugget Triathlon has two separate transitions:

  • Transition 1 (also known as T1) is located in the Bartlett High School parking lot. This is the transition from the Swim to the Bike.
  • Transition 2 (also known as T2) is located off of Arctic Valley Road about a quarter of a mile past the Moose Run Golf Course. Located on the south side of the road, this is the transition from the Bike to the Run.
