XTERRA Lake Tahoe Sprint & Duathlon
Incline Village, NV
August 17, 2013
Saturday, 8:00 AM Start
This is one of the all time classic off-road triathlon courses. Racers start with a swim in famous Lake Tahoe, one of the purest and deepest lakes in North America. The XTERRA Lake Tahoe Duathlon and XTERRA Lake Tahoe Sprint "Flume Trail" will run on the same course as the XTERRA Lake Tahoe.
The bike section test racers’ climbing and fitness levels. The bike starts up tunnel creek, a somewhat sandy gradual climb. Racers pop out from tunnel creek onto the area’s famous Flume Trail, which skirts the mountain side overlooking Lake Tahoe. Riders continue on past Marlette Lake and down a rocky and fast Tahoe Rim Trail. The views are breathtaking! Both the Duathlon and the Sprint will complete the 22 mile bike with approximately 4000 feet of climbing. The trail running course that is relatively flat, fast and scenic with tall pines, aspens, and creek crossings.
For Lake Tahoe water temperatures, we have found the following link, from UC Davis (who does research in the area) to be a good resource with up-to-date water temperature. One note to consider however, is their temperatures may be a bit colder than what a swimmer would feel on the surface.
This race is hosted by the Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe hotel in Incline village, make sure you make your reservation early. Go to the venue tab to find the discount code.
