Two triathlon distances (international and sprint), plus an aquabike category for individuals and a team category for the international distance all of which are held at Lake Wedington Recreation Park. New in 2019…a sprint-distance duathlon.
The park is located 13 miles west of Fayetteville and is one of the most natural settings for a triathlon in the region. Both spectators and participants can enjoy the natural beauty of the area and combined with unique finisher medals, post-race food, awards and prizes all make this race one that people do not want to miss.
WHAT ARE THE COURSES LIKE ?
- Sprint Triathlon – 400 yard swim, 13 mile bike, 2 mile run
- International Triathlon – 1,000 yard swim, 19 mile bike and a 4 mile run
- Aquabike – 1,000 yard swim, 19 mile bike

The swim takes place in Wedington Lake, the bike courses are on paved roads outside the park and both runs are held on a two-loop course inside the park on paved roads. The sprint distance run courses do not go up the infamous “hill from hell”!
