Lost Loon Triathlon
September 18 @ 8:00 AM - 12:00 PM CDT$85.00
The Lost Loon Triathlon is an untimed, family-friendly triathlon designed to get people of all ages active and outdoors. Our unique awards are based on enthusiasm versus speed. Team themes and costumes are optional but lots of fun! Our sports are biking, tandem canoeing and trail running or walking within Long Hunter State Park. Team members can complete all three sports or divide them up like a relay. The team fee of $85 is nonrefundable and includes the canoe rental, two adult race shirts and picnic lunch. All proceeds benefit the Tennessee Scenic Rivers Association and fund river conservation projects in our state.
Racers compete at their own pace and preferred distance on the course. The first leg of the course is cycling 3 loops 3 miles each on a paved road within the park. The second leg is tandem canoeing 2 miles on Couchville Lake and the final leg is trail running or walking 2 miles on a paved path around Couchville Lake. Teams can bring their own tandem boat, paddles and life jackets if they prefer. The park limits 3 adults per canoe. Teams must bring their own bikes, bike helmets and walking shoes. Fastened bike helmets are required on the bike course and fastened life jackets are required on the canoe course. Strollers are accepted on the trail run/walk. Families get their picture taken at the finish line!
Space is limited and pre-registration is required online in advance at www.lostloons.com. We hope you can join us this year!
