Event Details

If you are looking for the next incredible adrenalin rush, come and try the TRI-OBSTACLON™!!! This event combines MOUNTAIN BIKING, SWIMMING, and OBSTACLE RACING all into one killer event!!!  We are taking the traditional triathlon to the next level and we want YOU to be the first to try it!

3 Divisions:

1)  SPRINT:  Bike 5 miles to the lake, swim 300 yards, bike 5 miles back to Shale Hill and then run the 5K obstacle course.

2)  POWER:  Bike 5 miles to the lake, swim 300 yards, bike 5 miles back to Shale Hill, and then run the 10K obtacle course.

3)  ELITE:  Bike 5 miles to the lake, swim 600 yards, bike 5 miles back to Shale Hill, and then finish with a 20K obstacle course (2 laps on the 10K course).

TIMING CHIPS:  YES!  Splits at all transitions

RACE FORMAT:

Phase 1 Bike:  You will need a mountain bike for this phase as it is mostly dirt roads and some single track.  There are two riding segments of the race as noted above in the division description.

Phase 2 Swim:  The swim portion of this event will take place at Benson Landing on the southern tip of Lake Champlain (on the Vermont side).  This will be an open water lake swim out to a buoy and back to shore.  Then you will transition back onto your mountain bike for the ride back to Shale Hill.

Phase 3 Bike:  Get back on your bike to peddle back to Shale Hill.

Phase 4 Obstacle Course Run:  The last leg of your division will take place at Shale Hill.  You will run the designated obstacle course for your division:
