Description: Anchoring the Lake Lure Olympiad Sports Festival is the beloved Lake Lure Triathlon. It is without a doubt the most scenic triathlon on the Setup Events calendar. Home to beautiful Lake Lure and Chimney Rock State Park, there is no lack of beauty to amaze the senses.
Course Info: The course begins with a 750 meter swim through nearly 80 degree water, followed by a 20K bike over rolling hills and winding curves, ending with a steady, but reasonable uphill that winds through Bald Mountain Golf Course to finish on the Beach at Rumbling Bald Resort.


Swim
The 750M lake swim commences on a sandy beach, curves around a buoy and finishes right at the transition area, which is within 50 feet of the lake. The clear mountain water is smooth as glass and should be close to 80 degrees in August. Scenes from the movie "Dirty Dancing" were filmed here!

 

Bike
The 20K bike course is challenging, but you will be rewarded with breathtaking views as it rolls through the countryside at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains. You will finish back at the same transition area.

Run
The 5K run is a steady but reasonable
uphill that winds up a beautiful valley paralleling Bald Mountain Golf Course and then a gentle downhill to a beach finish beside Lake Lure. Age and gender groups are assigned in age increments with the top three in each category receiving gold, silver and bronze medals.
