One of the biggest expos, stocked goodie bags, and event sweatshirts are just some of the highlights. When you cross that line make sure to sprint because there's no better way to cool off that the Without Limits Slip n' Slide! The Harvest Moon Half truly is where Colorado comes to race. The Harvest Moon Long Coure Triathlon is the 4th stop on the Colorado Triathlon Tour!
The Harvest Moon is a 1.2 mile swim in the crystal clear waters of Aurora Reservoir, a 56 mile rolling country ride featuring the "Roller Coaster" on the home stretch, and a scenic 13.1 mile run capped off with a Slip n' Slide Finish! The Harvest Moon is Colorado's longest running and most affordable Half.
Why the small 600 cap? Easy, we want to maintain a fun, laid back, yet competitive race atmosphere. To us you're more than a number and we want every athlete experience to be the best it can possibly be, whether it's your 1st Half or 10th year racing! So mark you calendars for September 8th, 2013. The Harvest Moon Half truly is where Colorado comes to race. Duathlon:
The Harvest Moon Duathlon is a 5K (3.1 mile) run, 56 mile bike, 13.1 mile run event. Duathletes will all begin in the same wave after all of the swimmers have entered the water. An aid station will be set up at the finish of the 5K Run. Following the opening run, racers will then follow the same bike and second run courses as the triathletes. There will be one aid station at mile-3 of the first 5K run. The first 5k is rolling terrain with a mix of hard packed trail and wide cement running paths with a dirt shoulder. The Harvest Moon, Colorados only long-course duathlon, attracts 100 athletes every year competing for great prizes and raffles from our sponsors!
The Duathlon wave will take off at 7:30. Between us you have the hardest event of the day having to run twice, so we'd like to get you out of the sun before the heat of the day! Plus you'll hit the post race buffet and massage tent that much sooner!
Aquabike: The Harvest Moon Aquabike is the hottest growing segment of the Long Course Festival and has quickly become one of the largest long course aquabike's in the nation. The Aquabike (1.2m Swim / 56m Bike) will be the final swim wave to take off. After finishing the 56 mile bike all athletes will rack their bikes and exit transition as if starting the run, 200 meters into the run course athletes will turn off into the finish line. All returning athletes, YES, the Slip n' Slide finish line is back! Aquabike athletes will be the first to the massage tent, first to the food tent, and we'll start awards at 1:30pm. All aquabike athletes will be able to remove their bike from transition area after 12:30pm. The Harvest Moon, Colorados only long-course aquabike, attracts 150 athletes every year competing for great prizes and raffles from our sponsors!
