*Recently named runner-up for Best of the Rockies 2019 Triathlon in Elevation Outdoors Magazine.
Located only 21 miles west of the triathlon mecca of Boulder, Colorado, the XTERRA Indian Peaks Triathlon and Trail races on August 14th take you up and into the beautiful trails of the Eldora Nordic Center. These races are on true trail venues with a bit of dirt road, double track, single track and even a bit of "barely any there" track. It all ends up at the Indians Peak Lodge where you have live music, food trucks, beer and great prizes. It all starts with newly renamed Indian Peaks Trail 10k and 5k trail runs (formerly the Eldora Trail 10k/5k) at 7:30. The trails will take you on short steep climbs, meandering jogs through the forest, a technical descent, and a number of places where the trail is so soft you won't hear your steps.
The triathlons follow beginning at 9:15.
9:15am- Classic XTERRA course: 1000m swim, 22km bike, 7km run
9:45am- Sprint course: 500m swim, 12km bike, 5km run
10:00AM- Paddleboard Tri: 1000m paddleboad, 12km bike, 5km run

Traveling from Boulder or Denver take US36 into Boulder and head west on CO119/Canyon Blvd. Take Boulder Canyon west for 18 miles to the unique town of Nederland and as you come into town take the second exit on the roundabout to continue out of town on 119. As you exit town turn right onto Eldorado Road and then follow the signs to the Eldora Mtn Resort.
If you are coming from Golden or south of Denver take CO93 out of Golden towards Boulder. Seven miles north of Golden turn left onto CO72 and into Coal Creek Canyon for the next 18 miles. CO72 ends at CO119 where you will turn right and then 3 miles later turn left onto Eldorado Road and up to Eldora.
Volunteers are always needed at our events. We need lifeguards, course marshals, aid station workers, finish line help and more. Each volunteer gets a high-quality cotton shirt, lunch, and drinks.
If you are part of a school or non-profit group we will donate $25 to your organization for each volunteer you provide. Competitors can receive up to half of their entry refunded or a credit for future races if they help set up or take down.
