Located within the Monongahela National Forest, this is one of America's most beautiful triathlons. The race begins at 10AM on Sunday, July 15, 2012 at Summit Lake (located east of Richwood, WV off of Rt. 39/55) with a .5 mi. swim, followed by a 17.1 mi. cycle leg on the National Scenic By-way Rt. 39/55 and over challenging 9% grade Kennison Mountain. The race concludes with a 6.2 mi. run at the Cranberry Mt. Nature Center. We are celebrating our 2012 Scenic Mountain Triathlon!!!
