KBR Triathlon ~ Kayak, Bike, Run

Welcome to the beautiful lakeside community of Cassadaga, NY.   Just off of I-90, one hour south of Buffalo, NY and 1 hour north of Erie, PA.  Join us for a triathlon we think you will find challenging and a whole lot of fun!  Great for individuals and relay teams.

*If you register and do not receive a confirmation email from RunSignUp or tonia@coachmarkwilson.com, your email is blocking these.  Please adjust as this is the way we communicate pre-race and post-race information to you. 

E-Bike users welcomed.  E-bikers will be entered into a separate category and NOT compete with the overall or age-groupers. No throttles. 


This event is for you if you love to have fun and enjoy the beauty of the outdoors on a Saturday morning in September in Western NY.  1 mile kayak, 13 mile bike and 2 mile run.  Using the same bike and run courses as the Southern Tier Triathlon Club Summer Tri Series, you will see why they are starting to call Cassadaga the new mecca for triathletes.  Paratriathletes are welcome!  This event is NOT sanctioned by USAT


We all start in the water, lined up and ready to loop the lake along the perimeter for this fun kayak portion of the race that is one mile in length. Any kayak is acceptable for this event.  With "kayak pullers" ready to pull your craft out of the water as you zoom back to the beach your feet will stay “mostly" dry as you run up to transition.


It’s hilly, really fun and a great challenge for every level rider.  

The 13 mile course is all right hand turns. 

SAG vehicle on course.


The 2 mile run begins as you run out of transition.  Running along the lake, the course is mostly flat with one little “bump” continue to the turn-around point and head back the same way to the finish line. 

Stocked aid station in transition and at the turn-around point with Hammer Nutrition products and water.
