The Culpeper Triathlon is staged out of Mountain Run Lake Park at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains in the heart of Virginia horse country. The race will start with a in water swim in Mountain Run Lake. The transition area and finish line are located in the spillway and Mountain Run Lake. Rolling out of T1 athletes will have a challenging bike course with good pavement, low traffic and lots of turns. It’s not a PR bike course, but it is a a lot of fun! The run course has great views of Mountain Run Lake, the Blue Ridge mountains and is a rolling mix of flats and steady hills. Sprint athletes will do one (1) loop of the run while Olympic athletes will do two (2) laps.
