XTERRA Tahoe City Off-Road Triathlon, Duathlon & Aquabike routes

All four events take place in the stunning trails behind Tahoe City and Burton Creek State Park. The varying distances and disciplines means options for everyone, and a chance to see the world famous Lake Tahoe and it's emerald water.

Off-Road Olympic Triathlon: Involves two laps of 750 meters each (1500m total), split by a 50m beach run to get the blood back into your legs. This is followed by a 22-mile mountain bike, so bring your best cleats. Finally, the route finishes with a 5 mile trail run.

Off-Road Sprint Triathlon: Involves a quick 750 meter swim, a 13 mile mountain bike and a speedy 3 mile trail run in the backwoods of Tahoe City.

Off-Road Duathlon: This Run-Bike-Run race tests the strength of your legs with a 2-mile off-road run to kick things off, followed by a beast 22-mile mountain bike before your jelly legs carry you around another 5 miles of trails.

Off-Road Aquabike: If you're more of a water person then you will enjoy the beautiful blues of Lake Tahoe with two laps of 750 meters followed by a beast 22-mile mountain bike.
