Evergreen Sprint Triathlon

July 26, 2015
Evergreen, Colorado

Experience the "WOW Factor" on this beautiful foothills course!!! Nothing beats this cool lake swim, spectacular road bike ride, and scenic dirt road & trail runÉ 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 third edition of the Evergreen Sprint Triathlon will be high, so be sure to register soon!

COURSE

The Evergreen Sprint Triathlon is one of the most scenic and exciting courses on the Front Range. From the cool swim in scenic Evergreen Lake, to the challenging 12 mile bike course on beautiful foothills roadways, to the 3 mile dirt road and trail run around Evergreen Lake. 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 for the past 2 years have been 68 and 67 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!!!


REGISTRATION: Closes at Noon on Saturday July 25th

Sunday July 26th: Race morning packet pickup takes place on the lawn of the Evergreen Lake House, immediately adjacent to the transition and finish line. Packets may only be picked up by the registered athlete on race morning, and a photo ID is required. No exceptions. If you are an annual member of USAT, you must also present your valid USAT card.


LODGING: Hotel discounts will be announced shortly


DIRECTIONS: The race will be staged at the Evergreen Lake House on Evergreen Lake. There will be no participant or spectator parking at the Lake House, as transition will take up the entire parking lot.

Athlete Parking will be along the frontage road on the west side of Highway 74, north of the lake. We will have parking staff to direct you on race morning. Please do not park in church parking lots, as services will be taking place on Sunday morning.

Spectator Parking will be at Evergreen High School. Spectators will have a half-mile walk which will be marked on race day. Most of the walk is along a beautiful trail that they will enjoy.
