Cayuga Lake Swim/Run replaces the annual Cayuga Lake Triathlon (CLT) for 2021. As always, the not-for-profit event is organized by the Ithaca Triathlon Club and is a USA Triathlon sanctioned event. The Finger Lakes Region of upstate New York is home to a number of world famous wineries. Taughannock Falls State Park, about 8 miles north of Ithaca, provides a picturesque setting for the whole family to enjoy the aquathon, along with public swimming, a playground, shaded picnic areas and hiking trails. Tent, RV and cabin camping is available, and the Park maintains a marina with a boat ramp for access to Cayuga Lake. The park is an excellent spot for families with a beach and swim area and large playground.
You’ll begin the race with a swim in one of the crown jewels of the region, the refreshingly cool waters of Cayuga Lake. You’ll finish with a run near the shore, through the shaded and magnificent gorge trail to Taughannock Falls, the highest water fall in the Northeast at 215 feet. Cross the finish line with cheering crowds and a bevy of volunteers ready to serve a variety of delightful treats. See for yourself why Cayuga Lake Swim/Run is one of the premier triathlon events in central New York. It’s a very well organized race with fantastic volunteers and spectators, all within the heart of one of the most spectacular New York State parks.

Long Swim/Long Run – 1,500 meter swim, 10k run
