Individual or team event
This is a Kayak, bike, run race. The Kayak portion starts the race at the boat launch and finishes at the park. Racers will be responsible for getting their own kayaks out of the water and onto the ground. If he/she chooses they may leave it on dry ground for the race helpers to safely and carefully move over to the side. Each racer will proceed to the bike staging area and proceed north out of the park, across the Sayre bridge and north toward Tioga Downs Casino/Raceway. The racers will turn around and follow the same course back to Riverfront Park. Once they reach the staging area they will begin the run portion of the race exiting the park in the same direction that they did on the bike, but turning left and heading south. The running portion of the race follows the Susquehanna River down to the Athens Bridge and straight back.
This course is a fast course and relatively easy. There are very few turns involved during the bike portion but plenty of helpers on the course to help ensure a safe race and keep racers heading in the correct direction.
If you are looking for your first ever triathlon, a fun group weekend event or a tune up for experienced racers, this is a great course for all of you! The registration form is below. Please feel free to contact us with any questions. Good luck training and we hope to see you on race day!!!
