SavageMan 70 Triathlon

Swim

The 1.2 mile swim takes place in the cool, crystal clear waters of Deep Creek Lake and features an in water start and sandy beach finish. It is a rectangular course with yellow triangle turns and orange sighting buoys every 75 meters. The swim takes place in a corner of the lake surrounded by the forested hillsides of Deep Creek, it is an amazing swim. Be sure to look for Thomas the Turtle as you round the first turn… The water temperature in 2015-70, 2016-71, 2017-64, 2018-No Race, 2019-74.

Bike

The SavageMan 70.0 features a gorgeous and truly savage bike course and is the reason you want to do this race. Rural, well paved roads will take athletes through scenic farmland, forest and along trout filled rivers. Shaded, technical descents greet cyclists as they wind their way down Spring Lick and along the Savage River to the Westernport Wall where all athletes hope to earn their brick. From there you’ll have the ascents and descents of Big Savage Mountain, Otto, Jennings and Killer Miller. This is an amazing bike course that any serious athlete needs to race during their triathlon career.

Run

The 2 loop, 13.1 mile run course is almost 100% shaded and is a mixture of gravel roads, walking trails and paved roads. It begins with a nice tour of the lake shore and loops around the Discovery Center, campgrounds, along State Park Road and finally up the Fire Tower Rd. Once back on State Park Road runners will follow the last mile of the run course through a cathedral of pines on a nice, level, gravel road leading to the finish line.
