The Kinetic Cup Triathlon is a day of collegiate focused triathlon racing. Staged out of beautiful Smith Mountain Lake State Park this triathlon classic has clear water, mountain views and fun courses. The swim features a sandy beach start and a crisp, clear lake. The bike and run courses are rural, rolling and not too challenging. Colleges from all over the Mid-Atlantic bring their Varsity and Club teams to compete in the Olympic or Draft Legal race. The competition is fierce with 4 finishers in 2018 breaking 2 hours for the Olympic. The competition is also friendly so with a bit of training this can be an outstanding first race for the novice triathlete.
