Swim course: 1.5k Swim Surrounded by a million-and-a-half acres of National Forest and 12,000-foot-high mountains, Lake Catamount has been the location of Steamboat Triathlons for the last 5 years. Once you make your way through the majestic canyon of Rabbit Ears pass, you will see Catamount on your left sparkle in the sunlight among Yampa Valley's most picturesque locations. This 4,000-acre recreational preserve is dedicated to the continuation and enhancement of a 150-year-old tradition of ranching. The 1.5k swim will be a water start, waist deep, and you will be guided by buoys on the course. This is a wetsuit-legal race, with anticipated water temperatures from 66 to 70 degrees.
Bike Course: 40k This is one of the most scenic Olympic Distance Bike Courses in the country, which features riding along the Yampa River, and offering spectacular views of the mountains that grace the area. There will be 1 Aid Station along the way, as well as Police and Course Marshals. USAT rules will apply. It is your responsibility to be familiar with all USAT regulations.
Run Course: 10k The Steamboat Triathlon 10k run course is flat, fast, and extremely scenic! The new 10k run will leave the transition area with a left on CR18-Pleasant View, and continue until taking a left on 18C. At 3.1 miles, there will be a turnaround, and you will run to the finish on this out-and-back route. Again, no major hills, and it is all paved. We will have 5 Aid Stations on the run, support at miles 1, 2, 3.1, 4.1, 5.1!
