Clydesdale and Athena National Championships

Chattanooga, TN

 

USA Triathlon is excited to head to Chattanooga, Tennessee for the 2019 Clydesdale & Athena National Championships! Hosted in conjunction with the Chattanooga Waterfront Triathlon, the sprint and Olympic-distance triathlons will take place along the Tennessee River in the heart of downtown Chattanooga, the “Best Adventure Town” in the US (as awarded by Outside Magazine in 2015).

The 2019 edition of the Chattanooga Waterfront Triathlon celebrates 15 years in the heart of downtown Chattanooga, brought to you by Chattanooga Track Club and Team Magic.  Be ready for a fast, down river swim, a spectator friendly two-loop bike course and a scenic run along the city’s Tennessee Riverwalk.  This downtown triathlon takes the place of the popular Chattanooga Dam Triathlon of years past and the original Riverbend Triathlon from over 30 years ago. Traditionally an intermediate distance race only, a sprint distance was added in 2016, bringing an additional option for those new to the sport or those that prefer the shorter distance. The intermediate/Olympic-distance has held the honor of USAT Southeast Regional Championship many times in the past, and in 2018 served as the Mideast Regional Championship.
