The races keep on rolling in XTERRA's Southeast Region this month with XTERRA Fort Yargo, set for Saturday, April 29, at Fort Yargo State Park in Winder, Georgia. It's the third SE race in April, and one of nine in the region this season.
“We’ve got a fast, fun course,” said race director Dave Berger. “And that attracts fast, fun people. Last year we had a super close race between AJ Petrillo and Yaro Middaugh, and I guarantee more great racing this year.”
Last year, AJ Petrillo finished just 20-seconds ahead of Yaro Middaugh for the win, and in the women’s race Carly Anderson came out of the water so quickly, no one could catch her. View last year's results here.
Located between Atlanta and Athens, Fort Yargo State Park has some of the most well-maintained trails in the area. The race will start with a half-mile out-and-back swim, continue with a 10-mile mountain bike, and finish with a 5-mile trail run.
XTERRA Fort Yargo is the fifth race on the 2017 XTERRA America Tour, where "Every Race Counts."
