JUNE 17th, 2023
The XTERRA Lory Triathlon features a 1/2 mile swim (or stand-up paddle-board option) in the cool waters of Horsetooth Reservoir, a two-lap single track course on the beginner friendly mountain bike trails inside Lory State Park, and finishes with a 5 mile run that can be described as challenging but extremely rewarding! Oh and did we mention the 25ft long Slip n' Slide waiting to cool you off at the finish line?!?!
When you register you'll be asked to rank your mountain bike ability on a scale of 1-4 (1 being "expert" and 4 being "beginner"), then we'll ask for your estimated 1/2 mile long swim time. When registration closes what we'll do is set up 10 swim waves that are based on having the fastest mountain bikers hit the trail system first. This will help ease congestion and passing on the 2nd lap of the course for a positive race experience for all!
This event is limited to 350 competitors; please register early to take advantage of the discounted pricing as we've sold out in 2009-2022!
Individual: $95 until 11/01, $100 until 4/1, $105 until 6/11 at midnight
Relays: $135 until 3/31, $145 until 6/11 at midnight
FIRST TIMERS SWIM WAVE
The first timers swim wave will go last in the sprint distance event. This waves will be capped at a small 50 athletes each to maintain a small and friendly 1st race experience.
STAND-UP PADDLE-BOARD WAVE
Instead of a swim, you'll simply start the race and complete the 1/2 mile swim course on your stand-up paddle-board. Please note: you must supply your own stand-up paddle-board and this wave is limited to just 50 athletes.
Please note: athletes in the first timer wave will not be eligible for age-group awards. When you register simply check off first timer division instead of age-group division to enter this wave. Also note that this wave is for athletes competing in their first ever triathlon or brand new to the sport.
