TRI THE BOAT receives a Special USA Triathlon Designation for 2017

 

TRI THE BOAT in beautiful Steamboat Springs CO is back and better than ever. This epic two day event features Sprint & Olympic Distance Racing on June 24th and the Half Iron Distance June 25th. Each race distance also features relay, aqua bike and dry land categories.

This year, the half- iron-distance event has been designated the 2017 USA Triathlon Rocky Mountain Long Course Regional Championship, meaning the top 10 percent of finishers in each age group qualify for the 2017 National Triathlon Championship.

The race has also gotten a little facelift, with a new transition area, new swim course layout, new run course and new finish area. Set against the backdrop of the Yampa Valley, the swim takes place in the picturesque Stagecoach Reservoir. The two-loop bike features newly paved rolling terrain, and the vast majority of the new run course takes place on packed dirt trails with scenic lake views before the waterfront finish.
