2021 COVID-19 Update: As of January 6th the Colorado Department of Public Health has moved the “safer at home” dial from level red back down to level orange. This is a positive move towards our target goal of “level green” as the vaccine rollout remains on schedule. Registration for this event is currently open. We’ll continue to post the latest health department announcements on this page. Should the “reopening” be delayed, or the situation regress and we’re forced to cancel, 100% of your entries will be rolled to the 2022 edition of this event.
After last summer this event instantly became a personal favorite for our staff, volunteers, and athletes - come find out why! We couldn't be more excited about this course, this lake, and the overall experience. The swim starts out in the surprisingly warm waters of Steamboat Lake (74 degrees average race temp), then athletes transition to the most scenic bike course you'll ever find. You're more likely to see a herd of cattle crossing the road than be passed by a vehicle! After a ride through the rolling country-side athletes will transition to a 3.5 mile run course that's 50% on road, and 50% on the dirt trails that hug the lakeside. When we tell athletes you're running through wild flower meadows, we're not exaggerating.
Pack the camping gear and make a weekend getaway for your all your friends and family! We do have a limited set number of reserved camping spots that you can book by clicking the proper links on the race info page (camping info - reservation link will be posted soon). This year we're also offering a duathlon, aquabike, and stand-up paddle-board division!
