Venue

We are excited to announce a NEW VENUE for 2017.  Learn all about this beautiful location by visiting Westwood Golf Course.  More information to follow regarding their Friday night, Triathlon inspired menu.

Registration

You can register either as an individual, or as a team.  Teams can include either two or three people.  A team must complete each leg of the race, therefore a team of two would require someone to do two of the legs.

 

Early registration is available before June 20, 2017.

 

Registration includes: a race shirt, a catered lunch, give-away items from local businesses and sponsors, and the opportunity to compete for top awards.

We are not a USAT sanctioned event, however, safety is our first concern.
