About This Activity

Great opportunity to try out Triathlon or practice transition and go fast! For Adults this Super Sprint event will consist of a 250 yard pool swim (1 swimmer starts every 30 sec), or 400 yards for the sprint; just over a 14 mile bike through Habersham county that has gentle rolling hills, and a 2.25 (3.1 sprint) mile run in the park.

New for 2014

We've added loads of new gear for the summer, the biggest of which is CHIP TIMING & LIVE RESULTS! We've also added several new team members, one of which is dedicated to acquiring volunteers. We super excited about the triathlons this year, and can wait to see everyone.
