Lake Tahoe is known for its clear blue waters and crisp temperatures year round. Many professional and amateur swimmers use the lake to help prepare for the rigorous triathlon competitions held all around the country. The XTERRA Lake Tahoe Triathlon is one such event that is held each year around Lake Tahoe, taking advantage of the beautiful weather and outdoor trails.
This classic off-road triathlon event tests the endurance and fitness levels of its competitors. The Tahoe event is broken down into separate races that are equally grueling and exciting to watch. The Full Course includes the 1,500-meter swim, 22-mile bike ride, and 6-mile run. The Lake Tahoe Sprint includes a 750-meter swim, 22-mile bike ride, and 3-mile run. Last but not least, the Duathlon starts with a 3-mile run, a 22-mile bike ride, and finishes with another 3-mile run.
