The Montgomery Bell State Park in Dickson, TN is our host for a unique "endurance" distance and a sprint triathlon. The Dickson Endurance Triathlon will be a unique distance longer than Olympic but shorter then a half-iron. The 1 mile swim will be a two loop course in Acorn Lake. The 38 mile bike course is two & 1.2 loops on the roads outside of Montgomery Bell State Park. Our 9.3 mile run utilizes park roads with aid stations at least each mile.
