For the the sixth year, RDE ventures east to the beautiful town of Dandridge and Douglas Lake for the Lakeside of the Smokies triathlon. 2019 will again offer the 750 meter Swim/16 mile Bike/3 mile Run sprint option, in addition to the Olympic distance (1.5k S/40K B/10kR) option. The Olympic distance race features a wet suit legal 2 lap counter clockwise triangular open water swim , followed by a rolling loop bike course, capped off by a challenging run through town and across the famous Dandridge levy (aid stations ~every mile). The sprint option is a condensed version of the Olympic course--one lap swim (ALSO WS LEGAL, of course), shortened version of the Olympic bike and a flatter run course. Performance technical shirts, NEXT LEVEL tank option for women, race logo DeFeet socks, unique “wooden state” awards, and post-race burger/hot dog cookout & BEER highlight the Jefferson Co. event. Expected participation--175
To repeat, the water temp is expected to be between 70 and 75, so BOTH DISTANCES WILL ALMOST CERTAINLY BE WET SUIT LEGAL. That final determination will be made on race morning by the USAT official.
