About This Activity

This is the 3rd Annual Belle Fourche Purple Pride Triathlon. This event is an amazing race for the beginning triathlete and can be very challenging to the trained triathlete.  This triathlon has the potential to be very fast and excited and is still very challenging if you want to take it slow and steady. You will have a short swim starting on the waterslide with 6.5 laps in a 25 meter pool. You will then transition is the sun bathing area and grab your bike for the 14 mile bike ride. We will leave through town and go out to Rocky Point Recreation Area and turn around back to transition. At the turn around make sure you take a look at the panoramic view of the beautiful Black Hills. Your last transition will be to put on your running shoes and run 3.75 miles around a scenic route on the outskirts of Belle Fourche.

Event details and schedule

Registration/Warmup will be at 8:00-9:00am. Introduction to the event will be at 8:45am. Race lineup will be at 9:00am.

Your race will begin by going down a waterslide into a heated indoor pool where you will swim 6.5 laps(325m), then you will ride your bicycle 14 miles east on Highway 212 to Rocky Point Recreation Area and there will be a turn around (water will be here) and you come back the same way you left, then you will transition to the 3.75 mile run. This run is a scenic route on the outskirts of Belle Fourche.

When you get to the Belle Fourche Area Community Center there will be cones blocking the parking spots that I need and the others are yours for the picking. We do have a safe place to leave your gear while you are on the course.

You will need your ID to check in and also sign a waiver when you arrive.

The last two years have been in the 90 degrees at finish time. Be prepared for hot weather. If you don't have a water bottle for your bike please purchase one or get ahold of me before the race to work something out. If by chance we do run into cooler weather please pack accordingly. I DO REQUIRE HELMETS WITH ALL BIKE RIDERS. NO HELMET NO RIDE. Any bicycle will work, some are just a little more comfortable than others. Please train accordingly as this is an endurance event.

Any questions please feel free to email me. Contact info on this site.
