  • Sprint - 0.25mi Swim | 10.5mi Bike | 3mi Run


Join us for one of the top races in the southeast, brought to you by Chattanooga Track Club and Team Magic in the heart of downtown Chattanooga.  Be ready for a fast, down river swim, a challenging bike course and a scenic run along the city's TN Riverwalk.  While in town, check out the sites in the Best Adventure Town, according to National Geograhic.  


This downtown triathlon takes the place of the popular Chattanooga Dam Triathlon of years past and the original Riverbend Triathlon from "many moons" ago. The Chattanooga triathlon tradition began over 26 years ago. We are happy to keep it alive and hope you agree we have developed one of the best races in the country - not to be missed!

For newcomers and veterans alike... Hold onto your tri bars- we are promising you a great weekend! 

We are excited to be bringing back the Sprint distance for the second time.

Course Overview

This is an awesome event for spectators. Watch swimmers from the Walnut Street Pedestrian Bridge as they come down the river or there is plenty of viewing at the swim exit and transition area.  Stick close to the Finish Line and Expo area to see a little of everything.  There will be a great mix of vendors to entertain friends and family during the race.  Teams and groups traveling together are invited to set up a tent or meeting space, contact us for more details.

Swim Course: Both the intermediate and sprint courses are point-to-point, down river in the Tennessee River. A true favorite to all swimmers as there might be a slight current to help you to the swim finish. 

Bike Course: This course is challenging but fun. Racers seem to love it. Prepare for some long, steady inclines and the complimentary fast downhill sections on the other side.

Run Course: Much of the run is on a paved greenway along the Tennessee River. The sprint and intermediate are on the same course, with the sprint just turning around sooner. You will earn the flat sections as you climb up a steady hill out of the downtown area, AND you get that hill in reverse as you approach the finish line! One fun set of stairs to connect you from Riverfront Parkway to the Greenway. Pure out and back course so lots of good company and a great chance to see your friends (and competition!)
