About This Activity

Sweetwater Creek State Park is a peaceful tract of wilderness only minutes from downtown Atlanta, with wooded trails through fields and forest, showcasing ferns, magnolias, wild azaleas and hardwoods. The 215-acre George Sparks Reservoir is popular for fishing and provides a pretty setting for feeding ducks and picnicking.  The Triathlon begins in the reservoir with a 200 yard swim, followed by a 10 miles bike on asphalt and finishing with a 5K run through a wooded trail. Experience some of what the beautiful park has to offer on this beginner Tri. The Duathlon will begin on the trail, with the 5K run, followed by the 10 miles asphalt bike ride and finishing with a 5K run on the trail.
