Mountain Lakes Triathlon
|Date||Saturday, July 08 2023|
We are excited to celebrate 36 years of this event in 2023! This race has become a favorite for participants from Beginners to the Elite due to the scenic, fast course, and of course, the infamous tie-dye shirts and awards. The city of Guntersville offers a warm welcome with great community support from local police & emergency management and local volunteer groups, so don't miss this wonderful long-running tradition!
The 2023 race will be host to the USA Triathlon Alabama State Championship for clubs and individual racers in both Olympic and sprint distances. The top three clubs will be recognized. For individuals, the top 35% or top five (5) finishers in an age group (whichever is greater) will qualify. Racers may only qualify for Olympic-distance Nationals by placing in the Olympic distance State Championship race or Sprint Nationals by placing in the sprint distance State Championship race.
High School State Championships Exemption: All high school athletes who finish any of the State High School Championships will automatically qualify for Sprint-distance (pending they are at least age 15 as of December 31, 2023.) USAT will notify athletes of qualification.
On Friday night, there will be a Youth Splash & Dash. Kids 7-10 may participate in a 100 yard pool swim followed by a 1k run on a lakeside greenway. Kids 11-15 step it up to a 200 yard pool swim followed by a 2k run. USA Triathlon provides finisher medals to all participants.
