Race day water temperature should be hovering around 78.  Check back for more up to date information regarding the temperatures of Lake Norfork.  

USA Triathlon Fees:  In addition to registration, athletes will need to purchase a USAT Membership for either $15 for a one-day membership or $50 for an annual membership.  This process is handled through the online registration platform.  Athletes will have the option to verify their current USAT membership, renew a membership, or purchase a new membership.
