French Broad Challenge Triathlon

26 May 2013

Glory Hound Events is proud to be part of the mountain sports festival and to present the 4th Annual French Broad Challenge Triathlon. The event has been changed from a Saturday evening race to one on Sunday morning. We have done this to alleviate some traffic and safety concerns that have been building over the last couple of years. This new time should allow everyone to enjoy the festival and have a great race before heading home.
Racers will run a 1.5 mile course that includes a portion of the French Broad River Greenway to the boat launch at the Asheville Outdoor Center and then paddle the 2.5 miles downstream to Jean Webb Park where the Transition Area will be set up for bikes and run gear. The bike course is an out-and-back route up and down Riverside Drive. Following the bike leg, racers will run back to Carrier Park.

Location: Carrier Park, Asheville NC, 28806 (500 Amboy Rd)
Length of race: 1.5 mile Run, 2.5 mile Paddle, 11 mile Bike, 2.9 mile Run
