The Huntington Lake Triathlon is a fun and challenging race in an incredible location in Lakeshore, CA near the China Peak Resort. This event features a lake swim in Huntington Lake, a challenging road bike course, and a ‘high altitude’ run, which is part trail and part paved, finishes the race. Each athlete registered for the Huntington Lake Triathlon will receive a custom t-shirt, athlete goody bag, swim cap, post-race meal, and be eligible for raffle prizes and race awards three-deep in each division. Take the weekend and come up and enjoy this fun event with your family.

A USAT membership is required for the Triathlon, (but not the 5k/10k)  If you do not have one, you can purchase one during the registration process.

Total participation at this event is capped at 200.  Register before it is sold out.

There is a $10 vehicle entrance fee.  We recommend car pooling if possible.
