Event details and schedule
The triathlon race course starts with a two lap swim in warm clear waters of a mountain lake and the duathlon starts with a three mile semi-technical trail run.
After the first segment, all racers head out to complete two laps of a mountain bike course that includes twisty lakeside single-track, wide fire roads, smooth grassy sections,
a few 'rock gardens', and the challenging climb of 'Evitt's Revenge'. Once completing the mountain bike course, racers transition to a 5 mile run that has rooty trails, smooth open flats, and one big climb. All in all, this course is super fun and has challenged thousands of Newbies and Seasoned Vets over the years!
