Lake to Lake Events is adding a brand new triathlon in a brand new venue on July 31st. The very popular Lake to Lake Triathlon will be held as usual on June 26th, but event producer Peggy Shockley is adding a sprint triathlon utilizing Lone Tree Reservoir located just south of Loveland– – the Lonetree Sprint.
With a slightly longer bike than your traditional Sprint, this event caters perfectly to those who enjoy spending time in the saddle, especially through our beautiful Colorado Foothills.

Lonetree Reservoir is located just south of Loveland, CO. 500 acres of OPEN WATER, nestled on the west side of the Heron Lakes subdivision and TPC Colorado. Great water, beautiful views and quick access to the transition area. Read course details below:
750 yd clockwise swim. What do we love about this swim? The swim start and swim finish points begin and end on long concrete boat ramps. No mucky entrance into the water or at the exit. Blue Heron rookery on the south east side of the reservoir, it’s possible a few of them will be there to watch you begin and finish! Nice water~ nice views.
18 mile course that takes you west towards the foothills. No great elevation gains here, 421 ft. total and no spectacular elevation loss, 425 ft. total. At mile two, you’ll begin a gradual climb towards the foothills and at mile five a nice downhill towards WCR 20 (W. 1st St.) A few climbs, and few downhills, miles 10-11 a quick climb to CTY RD 18. Nice downhill to CR21, back south to CR16. CR16 will take you past Lon Hagler Reservoir as you wrap back around to SW42nd St and back the transition. NO stoplights!
Out and back course flat, just over two miles on asphalt and one mile on dirt road. Shade? Not really, so we’ll have aid stations stocked with cool water and fluid replacement drink.
This event will be capped at 300 due to the unabundant parking. We will have designated parking and ask on race day that you are respectful of the properties nearby and park only where we direct you. Carpooling is encouraged!
