Course Information:
STEAMBOAT TRIATHLON SWIM COURSE (Sprint and Olympic):  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 Triathlon for the last 10 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 and 750m 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. For more information on Lake Catamount, check out their website:

STEAMBOAT TRIATHLON OLYMPIC BIKE COURSE (24.8 Miles):  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.


STEAMBOAT TRIATHLON SPRINT BIKE COURSE (12.4 Miles): The NEW Steamboat Triathlon sprint bike course in a single loop course that starts out identical to the Olmypic before heading back to Lake Catamount on CO 131.

STEAMBOAT TRIATHLON SPRINT AND OLYMPIC RUN COURSE: The 5k and 10k run course are flat, fast, and extremely scenic!  The run will leave the transition area with a left on CR18-Pleasant View, and continue until taking a left on 18C. At 1.55 (Sprint) 3.1 miles (Olmypic), 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!


Directions to Lake Catamount

Lake Catamount is located on CR 18, nestled in a beautiful valley off of CR 131. Directions coming from Denver, take Hwy 40 traveling west, turn left on Hwy 131, then left on CR 18. The transition area will be on the left hand side, near the Lake House. Coming from the east, travel through downtown Steamboat, turn right on Hwy 131, then left on CR 18.


Parking Information

Upon entering into Lake Catamount at the intersection of the Transition Area, you will be directed to travel approximately 12 mile to a parking area on the right-hand side.  Please follow Volunteers instructions and do not park on the county road.  This road will be used as access for the run in/out and you will be towed if you park in this location.  Come prepared and put your gear in a backpack so you're able to walk the short jaunt to the transition area.  If you are a volunteer, please arrive early so you are able to park in this same location.  Absolutely no parking will be allowed at or near the clubhouse  this is the location for the bike in/out.



We love our dogs!  However, for this year Lake Catamount has requested that your pets be left at home.  Also, it is dangerous to leave your pets in your vehicle while you race or are a spectator.  Please do not leave your pets in your automobile.  Temperatures have been known to increase into the 80s by late morning so take care of your pets and leave them at home.
