The Evergreen Sprint Triathlon is one of the most scenic and exciting courses on the Front Range. From the refreshing 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!
NEW - Evergreen Sprint Duathlon: New this year, we will offer a bike-run duathlon for the non-swimmers! Duathletes will start individually, approximately every 10 seconds, outside the transition swimmer entrance. Duathlon times will start for each athlete when they cross the swim finish timing mat. From there, they will merge with the triathlon participants and complete the same bike and run courses.
NEW - Evergreen Sprint Aquabike: New this year, we will offer a swim-bike Aquabike for the non-runners! Aquabikers will have their own start wave, and will complete the same swim and bike courses as the triathletes. Upon completion of the bike portion of the race, Aquabikers will exit transition and run the final 150 yards to the finish line.

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 - similar to a Denver lake in mid-June. Our permit restrictions, however, require that all participants wear a wetsuit in this event. This is for safety due to the buoyancy a wetsuit provides. It is not due to the water temperature. Our event is the only swimming event allowed at the lake, and this is their rule.
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.
