The Asheville Triathlon course is a super event for every level of triathlete, from novice to elites. Novice + Beginner triathletes love this race! The pool swim is great for new swimmers & the run is flat and easy to navigate. Please note: the bike course has been challenging to some beginners in years past. Be prepared to ride over several challenging hills with steep grades. You will be required to stay on your bike. You may not get off your bike and push it up hills, as this is a safety hazard. Elite athletes – get ready for a PR! This race is fast and is a huge hit among local elites. The time trial swim start in a 50m pool allows swimmers to spread out. The bike leg is flat the first couple miles, so get down in your aero bars and push it. The middle section has some steep hills. Just get outta the saddle and roll over ’em! There are several downhill sections that are smokin’ fast! Many elites have PR’d during the 5k run, so bring your racing flats! Save money and sign up for both TRI LOCAL DUO Series races easily at the same time! iDaph Events and iDream Athletes Foundation are striving to reignite triathlon locally in our WNC community and region. Triathlon is a unique blend of the sports of swimming, biking and running all in one event. The journey to train for and race at a triathlon is an incredible time, energy and monetary commitment. Completing a triathlon is a major life milestone and an accomplishment that is unique and honorable. Local triathlons and communities have been on the decline for the past several years. We believe that triathlon deserves a community. We are here to support the development of a Tri Local Community. So we are….Introducing the NEW TRI LOCAL DUO Series Tri Local returns in 2023 with an all new triathlon experience, community and challenge!
