The Dust Devil Sprint Triathlon is a perfect event for newbies and veteran’s alike! Since 2008, this event has been a staple in the Northern Nevada multisport community.

  • The bike route travels rural roads with some stop signs. Participants are expected to follow all traffic regulations included stopping at any sign that does not have traffic controls provided by the race. All roads remain open throughout the event and participants should be mindful of vehicular traffic and ride accordingly.
