The Twin Lakes Triathlon is considered a ‘sprint-distance’ triathlon. A sprint-distance triathlon is typically much shorter than traditional triathlons, often featuring a half-mile, open-water swim, a 15-20 mile bike ride, and a 3-4 mile run. The Twin Lakes Triathlon is a 500 meter (.311 miles) swim, a 12.4 mile bike ride, and a 3.1 mile run – roughly half the Olympic distance.
In addition to the Triathlon, a run-bike-run Duathlon is offered. The Twin Lakes Duathlon features a 1.6 mile run, beginning synchronously with the opening swim portion of the Triathlon. The Duathlon then follows the same course – 12.4 mile bike ride and 3.1 mile run – as the Triathlon.
The races will be chip-timed and results available in real time. Alex from True Time Racing will be back again this year providing his high quality technology and fantastic customer service.
