July 10 - Xterra EX2 Off-Road Triathlon/Duathlon

Off-Road Triathlon - .75 miles swimming, 14 miles mountain biking, 5 miles trail running
Off-Road Duathlon - 3 miles trail running, 14 miles mountain biking, 5 miles trail running
Solo Racers and Teams of Two or Three

The XTERRA EX2 Off-Road Triathlon is one of over 50 points series races held in the United States. Competitors earn points based on their finishing place. 
Racers use these points to vie for the title of XTERRA Regional Champion thus qualifying for the XTERRA USA Championship held at the end of the 2016 season. 
Do well at Nationals and take a trip to Worlds... We hear that Hawaii is quite nice in October!

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!
