Eclipse Multi-Sport, in partnership with Darien Lakes State Park, Cattaraugus County Police, and the town of Darien Center, offers you a competitive triathlon that accommodates veteran triathletes as well as anyone new to the sport of triathlon.
The open water swim will be monitored by Darien Lakes Lifeguards and assisted by an underwater recovery team in full dive suits to make sure anyone in distress is adequately cared for. In addition, Kayaks will be on hand for extra support of the participants in all our races.
The bike course is a loop course which takes athletes on flat and fast course. Get ready for some fan cheering and encouragement at transition! For the Sprint, Duathon, and Aquabike distance bike, one loop is all you will need.
The 5K run through the beautiful Darien Lakes State Park. Finely tree lined and peaceful. Your finishing kick is close to being completely shaded, looping back through the park and getting some friendly encouragement halfway along.
Enjoy an after race hot meal, compliments of Cappelli's Pizzeria.
