Asheville Triathlon Race
This fast & fun sprint triathlon
+ Kids Splash N’ Dash returns to Asheville Rec Park in July of 2016!
Sunday, July 17th, 2016
Starting at 6:45 am
iDaph events and Right on Time Productions have united again to bring this popular to Asheville, NC! The race consists of a beautiful outdoor pool swim in a 50 meter pool, rolling bike course and a flat and fast run course! The Asheville Triathlon is a super event for every level of triathlete, from novice to elites. Novice + Beginner tri-athletes love this race! The pool swim is great for new swimmers & the run is a flat, ‘easy’ course to navigate. Elite athletes – get ready for a PR! This race is fast and is a huge hit among local elites.
We’re also proud to host a kid’s Splash N’ Dash event the same day as the adult triathlon! Kids will jump in the pool and start their swim as soon as all adults are out of the pool. The Asheville Kid’s Splash N’ Dash is designed to introduce youth to multi-sport events and promote an active, healthy lifestyle.
Join us for some summer fun at the Asheville Triathlon.
Super cool Asheville Triathlon tank tops will be available for the first 200 pre-registered athletes that register prior to July 9th at midnight!
