Xterra Tahoe City Triathlon

North Tahoe is the adventure center of North America in the summer. Another example is on June 25th, north Lake Tahoe will host the XTERRA Triathlon. XTERRA Tahoe City is an off-road triathlon that celebrates the natural environment of the North Shores excellent terrain, trails and blue water. XTERRA Tahoe City’s swim occurs in one of the clearest, cleanest, and deepest lakes in North America, Lake Tahoe. Depending on the lake level, the long course includes a 50 meter beach run. The openness of Lake Tahoe makes for a truly open water swim experience. Tahoe City is also home to some of the area’s most treasured mountain biking trails. The biking section starts with a strong climb, continuing on to take riders through fields of wildflowers, and breath taking sierra views. The trails are faster than they are rocky, but the climbs and elevation will test ones fitness level. The start and finish is at Commons Beach. There will be an after party so plan to have some fun after a hard day of racing. Agate Bay Realty has some lodging options including discounted vacation rentals available for the triathlon weekend. Most these homes are located between Kings Beach and Tahoe City and have access to a community pool, tennis courts, along with pier & buoy field.

Course Distances:

Full Course: 2X 750 meter laps with a 50 meter beach run (lake level dependent), 22 mile bike, 6 mile run
