A fun sprint triathlon and a challenge for athletes of all abilities. Race as an individual or as a team.
The race starts with a 400m open water swim in the beautiful, high-altitude Nottingham Lake in Avon, Colorado. The 15K bike leg takes off from the park and circles through the Singletree neighborhood. The hill through the neighborhood climbs 400′ gently over about 1.7 miles. So it could be called a moderate hill… look at it as a challenge, not a threat! Head back down Highway 6 to Avon and back to the transition area. Transition from your bike and finish with a fast 5K run or walk along the pristine Eagle River paved path while friends and family cheer you on!
The 5K Walk/Run will follow the same course as the triathlon 5K beginning at 8:30 am.
The Kid’s Duathlon will follow the lake with 1 lap running around the lake and 2 laps cycling around the lake. The kid’s event will begin at 10:30 am. (One lap around the lake = .75 miles.)
Proceeds from all events are donated to the Vail Valley Charitable Fund.
