Postponed to 2021
The weekend before Halloween, participate in the scariest race of the season, PUMPKINMAN... dunn-dunn-dunnnn. This point-to-point race starts at Lake Mead and finishes at Wilbur Square in Boulder City. Your legs will work hard on the bike, but you will be rewarded with an incredible view once you reach the top. The final leg of the race will take you on a paved run course in historic Boulder City, and finish at Boulder City's local park, Wilbur Square. This race will once again host the Rocky Mountain Collegiate Conference, with an Olympic wave start for all college athletes.
Not ready to do the triathlon? Consider our Aquabike, 10K or 5K Run options as well. We've got something for the entire family to enjoy. Plus, a costume contest will take place during the awards ceremony! So dress your best, show-up and give it your all at the 2020 Pumpkinman.

Gear Bag Instructions
Plan on using your own gear bag for Transition Area 1. Remember, you only have 2.5' allotted to you in each transition area. Please be courteous of the size of bag you bring. Unnecessarily large bags will be penalized.
Attach your tag securely to your swim bag. The tag is located on your run bib.
Securely pack all your swim gear (including your wetsuit) into your bag before heading on the bike. This bag is meant for swim gear only! Keep valuables in your car.
Do not hand-off your swim gear to a spectator to packet and take with them to the finish area, as this would be considered outside assistance and could result in a USAT penalty or disqualification.

Run gear should be dropped off at Transition 2 (Wilbur Square) on Friday between 3:30pm – 7:30pm or Saturday, between 5:30am-7:00am.
