Lake Lure Triathlon
Saturday, August 12, 2017
Rumbling Bald Resort on Lake Lure
"I've been racing since 1985, and I've been telling people this is one of those must-do events in North Carolina."
Anchoring the Lake Lure Olympiad sports festival weekend is the beloved Lake Lure Triathlon. It is without a doubt the most scenic triathlon on the Setup Events calendar. Home to beautiful Lake Lure, there is no lack of beauty to amaze the senses.
Hosting the triathlon is Rumbling Bald Resort, the picturesque mountain getaway nestled at the base of the majestic 2,800-foot Rumbling Bald Mountain on the north end of Lake Lure.
The 750M lake swim commences on a sandy beach, curves around a buoy and finishes right at the transition area, which is within 50 feet of the lake. The clear mountain water is smooth as glass and should be close to 80 degrees in August. Scenes from the movie "Dirty Dancing" were filmed here!
The 22.3K bike course is challenging, but you will be rewarded with breathtaking views as it rolls through the countryside at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains and finishes back at the same transition area.
The 5K run is a steady but reasonable uphill that winds up a beautiful valley paralleling Bald Mountain Golf Course and ends with a gentle downhill cruise to a beach finish.
All athletes up to the challenge with age and gender categories set in 5-year increments, as well as separate divisions for Athena, Clydesdale and Master Clydesdale.
Age and gender groups are assigned in age increments with the top three in each category receiving gold, silver and bronze medals.
