Event Description

A unique triathlon that you can experience as an individual or a team (of up to four).  This family-friendly event is a run, boat, and bike triathlon in scenic Pocahontas County on the Greenbrier River and Greenbrier River Trail (GRT).  The race starts and ends in Marlinton, WV, with a 3-mile run, down main street and then north on the GRT for an out-and-back course.  The race then continues through a transition zone into the river via kayak or canoe (or stand-up paddle board (SUP) for those adventurous enough) for four miles downstream.  The final leg of the race is a 10-mile bike ride, starting by heading south on the GRT, then turning back and heading north, finishing at back in Marlinton.  This race has successfully been running for over 30 years and is a staple event in the area.  Part adventure, part race, and all fun.  A great experience for competitive triathletes or families and friends just looking for a fun experience.  

The atmosphere at the post-race event, including catered meal, awards ceremony, and live band keeps people coming back year after year.  Don't miss out on the greatest race around.
