2014 Lake Lure Triathlon:

This Year marks the 9th Annual Lake Lure Triathlon, which is the anchor event in a weekend of festivities and athletic competition dubbed the Lake Lure Olympiad. It is without a doubt the most scenic triathlon in the TrySports Triathlon Series. Home to beautiful Lake Lure, Chimney Rock State Park and the historic 1927 Lake Lure Inn and Spa, there is no lack of beauty to amaze the senses. The triathlon is hosted by Rumbling Bald Resort which is nestled at the base of the majestic 2,800-foot Rumbling Bald Mountain on the north end of Lake Lure.

3 Races in 3 Days Challenge

The Lake Lure Olympiad is an annual, charitable, sports festival featuring numerous events and activities for all ages & abilities in beautiful Lake Lure, North Carolina. The Lake Lure Triathlon is one part of a series of endurance events that take place throughout the weekend. You can choose to do this one event only or if you are brave enought take part in the "3 RACES IN 3 DAYS" challenge. Can you handle it? If you think you can, you must start out with this event, the Lake Lure 10K Dam Run on Friday night. Saturday morning the Lake Lure Triathlon will test you swim, bike, and run skills. Then to top it off, Sunday is the Race to the Rock at Chimney Rock which is either a 25 Mile Bike with the final 3 miles up Chimney Rock or a 5K Run straight up Chimney Rock.

 

Course Information:

LAKE LURE TRIATHLON DESCRIPTION

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 on this lake!

Bike

The new bike course is 22.3 K in distance.......about 3 K shorter. It essentially is just as challenging as the old course and also offers some of the same breathtaking views that the Lake Lure area offers. We are sure you'll enjoy this course just as much if not more.

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.
