      EVENT DETAILS
      Escape To Blue Ridge Tri The Mountains Triathlon

      The 600 yard swim course in the beautiful, clear waters of Lake Blue Ridge is a one loop affair around a triangular course, which is laid out nicely for a fast first leg of the day.

      Once out of the water, the athletes run up the boat ramp to the transition area where they will grab their bikes for the 18 mile out and back bike course. Racers will cycle up a slight climb out of the marina to a right on Old Hwy 76, and then enjoy the first of many long downhills. They will cross over Lake Blue Ridge Dam and will be treated to amazing views of the Lake and Mountains to the right, and the Toccoa River to the left. The ride over the dam is flat and then the next 8 miles will be rolling and fun, with a few longer climbs and incredibly fast downhills. Athletes will turn around at mile 9 and head back to the transition area. They will be greeted by a nice downhill to the Marina.

      Transitioning again at the Marina runners will start their run with a slight climb out of the Marina then enjoy a mile of nice downhill followed by rolling hills and a flat, slightly downhill run into the Historic town of Blue Ridge ending in front of the Gazebo on the corner of Depot and Main St.
