Lory State Park Ranger Station (map)
XTERRA Lory is a beginner friendly triathlon starting with a swim in the clear waters of Horsetooth Reservoir, then a 12.2 mile single-track bike over rolling terrain, and across valley bridges at Lory State Park and finished off with a fun and challenging 4.8 mile (8k) run through the clouds on single-track trails! This is the perfect off-road triathlon for beginners to experts. Stand Up Paddleboard is available instead of the 1/2 mile swim (you must bring your own SUP)!
Slots indicated apply equally to male and female divisions. See the complete rules here.
