Podium Sports Medicine Grand Prix #2. For the the fifth year, RDE ventures east to the beautiful town of Dandridge and Douglas Lake for the 5th annual Lakeside of the Smokies triathlon. 2018 will again offer the 750 meter Swim/16 mile Bike/3 mile Run sprint option, in addition to the Olympic distance (1.5k S/40K B/10kR) option. The Olympic distance race features a 2 lap triangular open water swim, followed by a rolling loop bike course, capped off by a challenging run through town and across the famous Dandridge levy (aid stations ~every mile). The sprint option is a condensed version of the Olympic course (one lap swim), with a much flatter run course. Performance technical shirts, NEXT LEVEL tank option for women, race logo Boco "trucker hats", unique “wooden state” awards, and post-race pizza & BEER highlight the Jefferson Co. event. Expected participation--200
