Description

CHECK OUT THIS FANTASTIC VIDEO HIGHLIGHTING THE LAKE LOGAN MULTI-SPORT FESTIVAL BY CLICKING HERE

There are few places in multisport where only one word can describe the essence of the place and the event.  In the Southeast that word is Logan or more specifically Lake Logan.  For those who raced here or have heard the stories, Logan means breathtaking beauty, a wet-suit legal swim in the heat of the summer, a rolling bike course that is flatter than people imagine in the mountains and a shaded run course along a scenic river.
The 2015 edition of this event will see a new date and schedule that changes the order of the events but not the essence of the event.  The weekend will be one week later in 2015, August 8-9, and will feature the Lake Logan Half on Saturday and the international and sprint races on Sunday.  We will not have an Aquathlon in 2015 but will have Aquabike categories in the half and international.

 

The original triathlon at Lake Logan celebrates its 10th anniversary on Sunday, August 9.  The international distance race has quickly become one of the premier races in the Southeast, attracting athletes from across the country.  The new Sunday date provides a great option for couples wanting a variety of races to choose from over the weekend.  The 2014 race sold out and we expect it will again this year.

USAT Information

ALL USAT members must show proof of a current membership at packet pick up. If you have recently renewed a membership, then you MUST print out a temporary card or receipt of payment (that shows length of the membership period) to show at packet pick up. We will not take your word for it that your membership is current; you must SHOW us. Failure to do so will result in having to pay the one-day fee of $10.

CLICK HERE to be taken to the USAT website where you can renew your membership or print out a temporary card. You can also renew your membership at packet pick up if that's easier for you.

USAT's "Age Up" Policy:

An athlete's age for any USAT sanctioned race will be his/her age as of Dec. 31, 2015 . The age he/she is on 12/31 will determine his/her racing age group. If an athlete is due to "age-up" into the next group, it will happen at the beginning of the year, not after the athlete's birthday. This action aligns regular U.S. age group racing with the method used by USA Triathlon for its National Rankings Program and its new Grand Prix Series.

Example: John Smith is 39 and will turn 40 on November 20, 2015.

John will be considered 40 for all 2015 races - and will race in the 40-44 age group at all 2015 races.

Sally Jones is 29 and will turn 30 on July 3, 2015.
Sally will be considered 30 for all 2015 races - and will race in the 30-34 age group at all 2015 races.

This same policy applies to all race categories in the North Carolina Series races (Open, Clydesdale, etc).

Example: Fred Peters is 39 and will turn 40 on August 15, 2015.
Fred has registered to race in the "Open" category.
Since Fred will turn 40 in 2015 and will be considered 40 in all 2015 races, Fred will automatically be switched into the "Masters Open" category.

Testimonials

"I've returned to Lake Logan triathlon several times. The scenery, beautiful course and cooler mid-summer location can't be beat. Also, the race tends to draw a competitive field, which I also appreciate. Thanks for all your work on the series!" - Alicia Parr

"I started doing triathlons 28 years ago and Lake Logan is my favorite event of all time, the venue is beautiful, the way the mountains come down to the waters edge with the cooler water temps in August. The bike course is one of the best around with the combination of hills at the beginning and end with the fast river flats section. The run is perfect, a slight uphill to the turnaround and then downhill to the end allowing a negative return split. The competion is always tough drawing folks from several states but at the same time I think it's one of the best events for someone to do their first international distance races. - Dale Mosher

"By far my favorite races in the TrySports Series are the Lake Logan International and Sprint. The swim is in a clean, pleasantly cool (wetsuit legal!) lake nestled in the mountains of NC. Once you get on the bike you are in for a treat. Who knew that you could have a flat fast bike course up in the mountains of NC? The run is shaded, out and back and very spectator friendly. However its the little things that Set Up and TrySports do that defines the race. Great volunteers, great post race food, even prize money! Also lots of port-a-pottys- a clear sign of a first class race!" - Patrick Rimron

"My favorite out of town triathlon is Lake Logan. This is one of the prettiest places in NC. We usually make a weekend out of it, traveling with a group of friend triathletes. Everything is pretty about this course, the lake, the bike course and the run! You almost forget you are racing - almost. They also have a great group of volunteers. I look forward to this race every year." - Teresa Anile

"Lake Logan is one of the top race venues in the entire Setup Events lineup--period. Clean, crisp lake water, fun and challenging bike courses, and a run course that encourages you to negative split your time! The Lake Logan Multisport Festival weekend gives anyone the opportunity to get away to western NC for a spectacular sprint, international, or both. And not to mention it is a USAT qualifier for the National Championship!" - Adam Rose

"Lake Logan is an incredible triathlon! The misty breeze and chilled mountain weather make for such an enjoyable race! Swimming in clean and clear water is a rarity in the sport of triathlon, yet Lake Logan not only has beautiful water but a great swim course in general! For those of you who like hilly bike courses,--I would be one of those people--this is a race for you! The bike course has many twists and turns that challenge and hone personal biking ability. Running through shaded roads of easy to moderate hills is such a fun experience! The Lake Logan run course is fairly fast and immensely fun! This race is absolutely wonderful. I highly recommend trying it! " - Liliana Ferenandez
