Description

Welcome to the beautiful lakeside community of Cassadaga, NY.   Just off of I-90, one hour south of Buffalo, NY and 1 hour north of Erie, PA.  Join us for a triathlon we think you will find challenging and a whole lot of fun!  Great for individuals and relay teams of all levels.

Southern Tier Triathlon Club (STTC) Summer Tri Series

Super Sprint: 400m swim, 13 mile bike and 2 mile run.  

Paratriathletes are welcome!   AquaBike option offered to individuals only, not relay teams.

This is registration for Race #3 ONLY.  If you are interested in signing up for all three races of the series, or Race #1 and/or Race #2, please click here

If you are registering for a Relay Team, please click HERE

Race just one of this three-race series or all three.  Points are earned at every race and the Champion down to place #5, male/female, are honored at the end of season banquet.

Extremely beginner friendly.  NO CUT-OFF TIMES.  You will never be the only "first-timer" at the race.   

Great sharpener for experienced racers. 

SWIM COURSE

400YD swim in the calm and lovely Lower Lake of the Cassadaga Lakes.

From the sandy shore, with an in-water start, we swim out around the pontoon boat and back.

You are welcome to use a personal swim buoy for your own comfort.  We ask that you begin at the back of the pack so as not to interfere with other racers. 

BIKE COURSE

It’s hilly, really fun and a great challenge for every level rider.  

The 13 mile course is all right-hand turns.   

There are no aid stations on the bike course.  There will be one in transition.

LOUD Performance will be on-site pre-race for light bike maintenance.

RUN COURSE

The 2 mile run begins as you run out of transition.  

Running along the lake, the course is mostly flat with one little “bump”, continue to the turn-around point and head back the same way to the finish line. 

Stocked aid station in transition and at the turn-around point with Hammer Nutrition products and water.
