The Asheville Triathlon will begin with a 400 meter outdoor pool swim at the Asheville Rec Park pool. After the 400 meter swim, athletes will exit the pool and quickly enter the transition area. The 11.6 mile bike course will feature some rolling and challenging hills and some flat roads, turning into rolling landscape before returning to the Rec Park for a very fast run. The run is an out and back style course and is one of the flattest 5k’s you will find in the area! The Asheville Triathlon is a super event for every level of triathlete, from novice to elites.
