XTERRA Indian Peaks
August 5, 2017
Eldora Mountain Resort
After a 3 year detour over the Continental Divide to Snow Mountain Ranch the very popular XTERRA Indian Peak off road triathlon is returning to the Eldora Mountain Resort on August 5th.
Produced and directed by Paul Karlsson, the founder of the Boulder Peak Triathlon, this is the epitome of an epic off-road triathlon challenge.
The adventure begins with a chilly 1000m swim in Peterson Lake and after a 600 uphill run to the transition area competitors will head off on a 2 loop 23km bike on the trails of the Eldora Nordic Center. This bike course offers a bit of everything, dirt road, double track, tight descents, muddy climbs, singletrack and a bit of no track. After dismounting the bike the athletes will embark on what many call the best XTERRA run course out there. This 4 mile run is a true trail challenge with steep climbs, singletrack and primitive trails that will put the hurt on even the most seasoned pro.
But the best part is at the end with bluegrass music from Burn It Blue, pizza from Cross Cut, and fresh brews from El Rancho Brewing. Do not miss out on this classic event.
One more thing, besides the great age group prizes there will be a $1000 prize purse.
*Not up for a whole triathlon that day, then take on the LaSportiva Eldora Trail 10k at 7:30am that morning.
