The Badin Lake Triathlon provides a perfect opportunity for all fitness levels to get involved in a sprint triathlon. Participants will swim a 750 yard open water swim in Badin Lake, bike a 13 miles through rolling country roads of Stanly County, and run a 5K through historic Badin, NC.
In 2018, Badin Lake Triathlon is joining forces with Trivium Racing and will become part of the Trivium Multisport Series. A unique finisher medal will be provided which will link together with finisher medals of all other series events to create an extra large Series Finisher Medal. In addition, triathletes will have the opportunity to participate in several multisport events throughout the year at a special Series Price. Visit Trivium Racing for more information.
Individuals will have the opportunity to compete in age group, Athena, or Clydesdale Divisions. Athletes competing in the Athena division must be female weighing 160 pounds or more. Athletes in the Clydesdale division must be male weighing 220 pounds or more.
The Relay Team Challenge encourages everyone in the community to get active and fit while having fun! It's a perfect way to get involved in the Badin Lake Triathlon without taking on all of the events. Three-man teams consist of one swimmer, one cyclist, and one runner. Two-man teams are welcome where one member of the team completes two of the legs. Teams can be All Male, All Female, or Coed.
Awards to be given to Overall, Age Group, Athena, Clydesdale, and Team Category winners.
