STEAMBOAT TRIATHLON SWIM COURSE (Sprint and Olympic)
Surrounded by a million-and-a-half acres of National Forest and 12,000-foot-high mountains, Lake Catamount has been the location of Steamboat Triathlon for the last 10 years. Once you make your way through the majestic canyon of Rabbit Ears pass, you will see Catamount on your left sparkle in the sunlight among Yampa Valley's most picturesque locations. This 4,000-acre recreational preserve is dedicated to the continuation and enhancement of a 150-year-old tradition of ranching. The 1.5k and 750m swim will be a water start, waist deep, and you will be guided by buoys on the course. This is a wetsuit-legal race, with anticipated water temperatures from 66 to 70 degrees.
