WHY YOU SHOULD REGISTER
The Lake Lure Triathlon starts and finishes on the white sandy beach of Rumbling Bald Resort. The Lake Lure area is a favorite training haven for triathletes and was noted as such by Complete Tri in their "Top Ten Great Destination Triathlons" and "The Most Amazing Triathlons to do across the USA today" in Culture Trip.
"I've been racing since 1985, and I've been telling people this is one of those must-do events in North Carolina." - Cid Cardoso, Jr.
The 750-meter swim starts on the beach and then finishes at the transition line.
This is a time trial swim start, with participants going off every 2-3 seconds. This greatly improves swim safety, but it also allows participants to swim with family members or friends, something they're not able to do many times with wave start races. The transition area is just a short run out of the water.
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 course starts at the transition area and is a steady, but reasonable, uphill climb 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.
