Course Info: The triathlon course for the XTERRA Lory Triathlon will take place in Horsetooth Reservoir, offering breathtaking views of the canyon walls. Water temp ranges from 72-76 degrees.
Swim: The swim course is an out and back shape, with the swimmers traveling in a counter clockwise direction. Participants exit the water and from the waters edge to the T/A will be CARPETED!!!
NEW for 2011: We'll be making each buoy placement a double buoy to widen the course, helping to prevent any cross over. We'll also try to shift the line to the left and help reduce the sun glare.
NEW SWIM WAVES: You'll be ranked by swim and mountain bike ability to help group you will similar ability levels out on the course!

The XTERRA Lory Triathlon features a 1/2 mile swim in the clear waters of Horsetooth Reservoir (Eltuk Bay), it's one of the most scenic swims in the state with canyon walls on both sides. Then it's on to a 2-Lap 12.2 mile single-track bike over rolling terrain, and across valley bridges at Lory State Park (same course as 2009 Fat Tire with an added passing zone halfway in). Then you get to finish things off with a fun and challenging 4.8 mile (8k) run through the clouds on single-track trails! This is the perfect off-road tri for beginners to experts. The course is designed so that anyone can have fun and everyone will be challenged! Entries will be limited to 300 participants, and we sold out in 2010!
