Due to CDC guidelines the 2020 Lake Murray Sprint Triathlon has been cancelled. We will be deferring all registered athletes into the 2021 event and will let everyone know how to claim entry into that event when we open registration for the 2021 season. We are devastated to have to make this decision and hope you understand the rationale behind it. For more information on the CDC guidelines for mass gathering events click HERE.
SWIM: 750 Meters (Lake)
BIKE: 16 Miles
RUN: 5 Kilometers
The Lake Murray Triathlon has become a favorite chance for all South Carolina Triathletes to showcase their talents against the best in the state. Nestled in the center of South Carolina athletes from the Upstate, Midlands and Coastal regions converge into Columbia each year for this sprint distance event.
The swim is one counter-clockwise 750 meter loop. Wetsuits should be legal with expected water temperatures in the low to mid 70's. Depending on the wind swimmers may encounter light to moderate chop with a small current.
The bike course is long for a sprint distance event - one 16 mile loop. Road surfaces are good with a few rough areas scattered through the course. This is to be expected as the course winds along completely rural roads. Only 5 turns on this course and they are marked with pavement arrows and directional signs. Police and volunteers man the proper intersections.
The 5k run course is very unique in that runners get several opportunities to see where they are in relation to the competition. A one loop course with several out and back spurs gives athletes a chance to see where they are on the course. Relatively flat and shaded, this run course can be very fast.
