About This Activity

Belle Fourche Purple Pride is hosting the 1st annual triathlon.  This triathlon is set up to be fun for first time triathletes and a challenging race for others.  The swim starts on the Belle Fourche Area Community Centers waterslide and then you will be swimming 6.5 laps in the heated pool.  Those that are afraid of the swim, please bring your lifejacket as you can wear it.  From the swim you will transition in the lawn of the ajoining park area where you will get on your bike and ride east on Hwy 212 for 7 miles and turn around and come back for a total of 14 miles. You will then transition in the same spot and start running 3.75 miles around what is called "The Loop". Timing will consist of one timer starting when the first person starts and then recorded when you cross the finish line. If you want split times, please bring your own person.
