Horsethief Canyon Trail Triathlon route

All 3 legs of the race course are the same. It is a wide fire road 6.6 miles out before turning around and heading back the same way you came, for a total of 13.2 miles. The first leg will be horse riding, followed by running, then mountain biking. There are some awesome hills and great views.

The fire road is very wide, and not very technical, footing will be good no matter what the weather brings. Aid stations will be plentiful along the course for athletes, and water and hay will be available for horses as well. A volunteer will be taking numbers at the turnaround to verify you made it

This race course is located in the Pine Creek Wilderness with permissions granted by the U.S.F.S. so be sure to respect the course and the surrounding lands.
