We are incredibly excited to be offering a sprint Triathlon at the beautiful Basin Harbor Resort and Boat Club. This race promises to be fast and fun due to the fact that the course is basically flat. Drop off your bike near the beach at Basin Harbor. This will serve as or start/finish and our transition area throughout the race. The swim will start and finish from the beach, with the course staying close to shore along the eastern shore of Lake Champlain heading north and swimming back. Then hop onto your bike which will be a very short jaunt from the beach. Enjoy the gorgeous grounds of the resort and the neighboring countryside before returning for a similar run.
Participate in this race as an individual completing the entire race, or join a team of 2 or 3. The venue is worth the trip!
All racers who register by June 17 will receive a free commemorative race shirt.
