Experience the "WOW Factor" on this beautiful foothills course!!! Nothing beats this cool lake swim, spectacular road bike ride, and scenic dirt road & trail run - all just 20 minutes from Denver
Evergreen Lake had not seen a triathlon since the early 90's when the Evergreen High Country Triathlon challenged athletes from around the country. We revived the tradition in 2012, and the course received rave reviews. Demand for the fifth edition of the Evergreen Sprint Triathlon will be high, so be sure to register soon!

This is a race you'll want to do year after year!

750 Meter Swim: The Evergreen Triathlon swim follows a counter-clockwise loop in scenic Evergreen Lake. In mid-July, the lake will be comfortably cool. Water temps are typically 67 to 69 degrees. Our permit restrictions, however, require that all participants wear a wetsuit in this event.No swimming will be allowed in the lake prior to race day. We have received special permission for our event, which allows swimming on race day only. Anyone caught swimming in the lake at any other time will be ticketed and you will not be allowed to participate in the race. Entry fees will not be refunded if you are caught swimming before race day
12 Mile Bike Course: The 12 mile ride follows well maintained paved roadways alongside Bear Creek, then climbs up Witter Gulch and Stagecoach. The final five miles of the course is a very fun rolling descent including an auto lane that is totally closed to motor vehicles for the final two miles.
3 Mile Run: The run course will follow a mix of dirt roads and trails above and around Evergreen Lake, with a short paved stretch and some boardwalk segments. The finish will be on the lawn in front of the beautiful Evergreen Lake House. The course also includes the stairs down and up the dam, reminiscent of the Escape from Alcatraz tri. This is truly a fun course!!!
Your entry fee includes entry into the race, FREE Photo Downloads, an Evergreen Sprint Tri technical shirt in men's and women's sizing, fun music, a racer goody bag, a post race meal including breakfast burritos from El Senor Sol Mexican restaurant!!!
The Evergreen Sprint Triathlon is limited to 750 entrants. There will not be a waiting list for this event. There will be no race-day registration for this event.
Registration closes at noon on Saturday July 22nd
