XTERRA Iron Creek, part of the XTERRA America Tour. Thirteen miles from Spearfish, SD, Iron Creek Lake is nestled in the northern end of the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota.
The course features a 1000m swim, 22k mountain bike and an 8k run. The swim is a spectator-friendly, two-lap course, with a short exit between laps, in scenic Iron Creek Lake. The ride climbs from Iron Creek Lake up to the Old Baldy trail system in the Black Hills National Forest. The ride is entirely within forested areas, so bring your technical skills and expect lots of single-track. After descending back to Iron Creek Lake, the race goes to a challenging two-lap run around the lake, where spectators cheer on the racers as they tackle difficult hill sections on each lap of the run.
