Lake Logan Sprint Triathlon

4 Aug 2013

Lake Logan may be the most beautiful triathlon venue in the country. The swim in this pristine mountain lake has a unique course starting near the main docks but finishing under the highway bridge in the mouth of the river. The bike courses are unusual for the mountains in that it is mostly flat and very fast. The run courses are an out-and-back along a two-lane road along the river. It has a 1-2% grade on the outbound leg, almost guaranteeing a negative split on the downhill inbound leg.
The Lake Logan Sprint Triathlon highlights the second day of the Lake Logan Multi Sport Festival. This race was added in 2009 and includes all of the great features of the international distance race on Saturday but in a smaller scale.
