A fun course, an amazing venue, and the best post-race meal ever!!! In 2014, Paul Karlsson and Dig Deep Sports take over management of this Colorado classic, started by Racing Underground. Paul is the founder and original race director of the Boulder Peak Triathlon, and currently organizes XTERRA Indian Peaks. Paul also grew up at the race venue, and the run course passes his boyhood home. Racing Underground will continue to be involved with the event, providing top-notch timing and coordinating the pool swim.

The Lookout Mountain Triathlon kicks off with a 525 yard pool swim at the amazing aquatic facility located within the Mount Vernon Country Club atop Lookout Mountain in Golden. The Racing Underground team are the masters in coordinating on-time, efficient pool swims!

Next, comes a challenging 10 mile bike course that features some good climbs and fast descents as you travel the well maintained paved roadways on top of Lookout Mountain. Following the ride, you'll complete a rolling 5K run on dirt roads, entirely within the Country Club property.

The Mount Vernon catering staff will be serving the most amazing post-race breakfast ever following the race. They will be set up in the expo area, serving you from a fantastic menu. This race is not to be missed, but enter early as we are strictly limited to 300 entrants. This race has sold out well before race day every year!

GENERAL INFORMATION

COURSE:This scenic sprint course kicks off with a 525 yard pool swim at the Mount Vernon Country Club aquatic facility. Next, you'll be challenged with a 10 mile bike ride that rolls around the summit area of Lookout Mountain. The race concludes with a rolling 5K run entirely within the Country Club.

525 Yard Swim: Swimmers will be seeded according to predicted swim time, and will start 4 per lane. Each participant will receive an individual start time, and lap counters will track your progress through the swim. Please be as accurate as possible when predicting your swim time. Estimated swim times can be updated until 5pm on June 5th. Swim times cannot be updated after June 5th.

10 Mile Bike Course: The 10 mile ride follows well maintained paved roadways atop Lookout Mountain, offering scenic views, challenging climbs, and fun descents. This ride does not use the switchback road that climbs Lookout Mountain from the Golden side. It is entirely on the upper portion of Lookout Mountain. It is one of the best sprint bike courses in the state!

5K Run Course: This fun, rolling run loop is almost entirely on dirt roadways that wind through the Mount Vernon Country Club property. You will pass through open meadows, and under shady pines as you tour this beautiful course!
