2013 UCP Shawnee Mission Tri Results

30th Annual UCP Shawnee Mission Triathlon
JCPRD and title sponsor UCP have come together to support “life without limits for people with disabilities.” UCP’s motto fits perfectly with JCPRD’s intention…to challenge all athletes to “exceed their limits.” JCPRD & UCP believe in inclusion of all athletes*. The Challenged Athlete Division is for triathletes who have a permanent and always present disability.

UCP has been helping people with disabilities, including cerebral palsy live active, independent, and full lives for over 60 years. When you support UCP, you provide information, resources, financial assistance, housing, advocacy, and so much more to people that have disabilities. Your fundraising and donation dollars stay right here, helping people with disabilities living in our community. 100% of the proceeds raised goes directly to the people served by UCP’s programs.

UCP services and programs include: adaptive sports & training, residential & daily living support, disability information & referral, case management, free community education & awareness, sibling support, & advocacy.For more information, please visit

UCP is a 501(c)3 charitable organization as defined under the Internal Revenue Code and serves all five counties that make up the Greater Kansas City community.

Message from our Title Sponsor United Cerebral Palsy of Greater Kansas City
United Cerebral Palsy (UCP) of Greater Kansas City is excited to be the title sponsor of the UCP Shawnee Mission Triathlon again for 2014! Our motto is life without limits for people with disabilities. If you missed seeing the race in 2013, click here to be inspired by some of our Challenged Athletes.

Donation Section at Registration
You can support UCP by making a donation as part of your online registration process or by setting up a fundraising Fundraising Page . It’s easy to do, and you can use this page to communicate your efforts to “tri” for life without limits as you train to compete in the UCP Shawnee Mission Triathlon. All money raised will go directly to UCP’s programs that help people with disabilities living in your neighborhood achieve a full, dignified life.

UCP Shawnee Mission Triathlon: Closed Course Offers Two Courses
The UCP Shawnee Mission Triathlon is a great competitive race and one of Johnson County's premier racing events. This closed course event offers both a Short Course (Sprint Distance) and a Long Course (International Distance) for a wide range of national athletic racing talent. Both courses are routed on the Mill Creek Streamway which adjoins Shawnee Mission Park. ChampionChip timing-system will be used with aid stations at transition and at every mile on the run.

The Long Course
The long course is a .62 mile (1000 meter) swim, 18 mile bike (4 laps) and a 4.5 mile run (see course map below). The swim start will be a time trial start where one person enters the water every three seconds. You will place yourself by the appropriate pace sign the morning of the race according to your swim time where you feel most comfortable.

The Short Course
The short course run encompasses the redesign of the trail system. The swim is a .31 mile (500 meter) swim, 9 mile bike (2 laps), and a 3.2 mile run (see course map below). The swim start will be a time trial start where one person enters the water every three seconds. You will place yourself by the appropriate pace sign the morning of the race according to your swim time where you feel most comfortable.
