Evergreen Sprint Triathlon – Cancelled
July 19 @ 5:00 am - 1:00 pm
COVID UPDATE: THE 2020 EVERGREEN SPRINT TRIATHLON HAS BEEN CANCELLED: While restrictions for gatherings are being relaxed, at this point in time we are not able to secure permits for the number of athletes it would take to cover even one third of the costs of putting on the event… and a portion of our bike course would be limited to just 10 total riders. We look forward to seeing you all on our start line in 2021.
The Evergreen Sprint Triathlon is one of the most scenic and exciting courses on the Front Range. From the brisk swim in scenic Evergreen Lake, to the challenging 12 mile bike course on beautiful foothills roadways, to the 3 mile dirt road and trail run around Evergreen Lake. This is a race you’ll want to do year after year!
The Evergreen Triathlon swim follows a counter-clockwise loop in scenic Evergreen Lake. Even in mid-July, the lake will be chilly with temps expected to be in the mid 60’s. Our permit restrictions require that all participants wear a wetsuit in this event.
The 12 mile ride follows well maintained paved roadways alongside Bear Creek, then climbs up Witter Gulch and Stagecoach. The final five miles of the course is a very fun rolling descent including an auto lane that is totally closed to motor vehicles for the final two miles.
The run course will follow a mix of dirt roads and trails above and around Evergreen Lake, with a short paved stretch and some boardwalk segments. The finish will be on the lawn in front of the beautiful Evergreen Lake House. The course also includes the stairs down and up the dam, reminiscent of the Escape from Alcatraz tri. This is truly a fun course!!!
The Evergreen Sprint Triathlon is limited to 750 entrants. There will not be a waiting list for this event. There will be no race-day registration for this event. http://www.racingunderground.com/evergreensprinttri/
