About This Activity

First Thaw Tri Now A Duathalon

From the Race Director:

Last night, we made a valiant attempt to swim in Silver Lake that lasted all of 2 minutes because the water is only 51 degrees right now. Guidelines suggest anything below 55, that the swim should be cancelled and anything below 60, the course should be modified or cancelled.

The weather forecast for the next two weeks has the highs in the 50's. It is very unlikely the water temp would reach 60 degrees and, frankly, we don't want to force anyone to swim in super cold water for the first race of the year.

The swim portion of the course will be cancelled, and the race will be converted to a duathlon (run, bike, run).  The sprint distance will be 2 mile run, 16 mile bike, and 2 mile run.  The super sprint will be a 1 mile run, 6 mile bike, 1 mile run. All the details will be posted on the race website shortly.
