Description

The Dam Tri moves into its seventh season in 2017 after six wildly successful events. This Sprinternational distance event provides a longer distance than your typical sprint tri but doesn't quite expect as much from you as the international distance. The entire triathlon incorporates segments of the Lake Murray Dam. Starting with the 1000 meter lake swim, athletes will be comfortable with or without wetsuits as water temperature will be around 70 degrees. The swim is one large triangle starting alongside the massive spillway of the dam. Once out of the water it is a quick dash to transition and onto the 2 loop mostly flat to rolling bike course. Athletes get to cycle over the dam 4 times and experience the amazing views from atop thisSprinternational Triathlon Logo monumental structure. The entire run course is held on the dam with an out and back format and is unlike any other run you will experience. Don't miss this exciting event just minutes from downtown Columbia.
