The 2017 Spring Fever Triathlon is a great race for beginner triathletes as well as experienced racers. Many local and regional athletes began their triathlon “careers” at this event. The Spring Fever Sprint Triathlon is held at the Jenks Aquatic Center featuring an indoor Olympic sized pool located in Jenks, Oklahoma. The bike and run segments include a tour of beautiful Green Country just south of Tulsa.
We couldn't have such great races without our exceptional volunteers. If you are not racing then sign up to help and you'll receive a 30% discount coupon at RunnersWorld Tulsa.
The swim segment is a 400 yard snake swim in the indoor Olympic sized pool at the Jenks Aquatic Center. Lanes will be roped off for 25 yard lanes and racers will complete 16 pool lengths. Racers will move to the next lane at each turn. Click on the map to the left for a larger view of the swim course.
The transition area is located in the parking lot just outside the Jenks Aquatic Center. Racers will exit the pool and prepare for their bike ride. After the swim racers enter from the south end of the transition area and exit with their bike on the north end. Racers must past the mount line prior to getting on their bike.
As a racer finishes the bike course they approach the transition area from the north. Racers must completely dismount from their bike before they cross the dismount line. Racers place their bike back on the rack and exit the transition area on the south end to begin their run.

The bike course provides a 12-mile tour of the well-known Green Country south of Tulsa and west of Jenks. The entire course is paved and is mostly flat with a few rolling hills. Bicyclists return to the transition area to begin their run.

The 2-mile run course is on paved streets that wind through Jenks’ neighborhoods and ends at the Jenks High School Track Field. After a lap around the track racers and spectators participate in the finishers’ line festival.
The Spring Fever Sprint Triathlon provides many opportunities for friends and family to watch you perform. The Jenks Aquatic Center has ample bleacher seating for spectators to watch the swimmers prepare and perform. The transition area in the parking lot is a great place to watch and cheer participants as they transition from one segment to another. The finish line festival is a few blocks north of the high school at the Jenks Track Field. Spectators are welcome to visit with the vendors for questions and product demonstrations. Food will be available for purchase from local food trucks.
Spectators are asked to stay off the course to reduce traffic. Spectators are not allowed to provide any aid or assistance to participants during the race. More cowbell is always welcome.
Our races are manned by the best volunteers in the area. Most are triathletes, runners, swimmers or bicyclists.
Spring Fever Triathlon wouldn't be possible without the help of great volunteers. Sign up for a shift at our VolunteerSignup website. Don't worry if you are new to the volunteer scene. You'll be working alongside and learning from the best of the best.
