Arcadia triathlon & Aquabike
***ARCADIA LAKE IS OPEN!*** The water is still a little high, but, hey, you swim on the top, right?
July 21st, 2019 7:30am
This year Arcadia is a true test of the all-around best triathlete. The race starts with the swim: a 500 yd triangle loop swim, a beach run , then another 500 yd loop, before heading out on the hilly and technical 20 mile bike course, and finishing off with two out and backs on the hilly 2 mile run course!
New for 2019- We have added a short course option: Race will be 500yd swim, 10 mile bike and a 2 mile run. This will be great for first time athletes or those trying to taper for USAT Age Group Nationals!
