Triathlon in Heber Springs

The Heber Springs Tri the Lake Triathlon will be held Sunday, Oct. 11.

The event includes:

  • SWIM – 500 yards with the entry and finish area on Sandy Beach. Historically, the water temp in early October is in the mid-70s. If the water temp is above 78, a wet suit will not be allowed.
  • BIKE – 13 miles. The bike course is a fast, rolling out and back course with one significant climb and descend. The road is in excellent shape with sections of it just being freshly paved in the last few years.

No Aid Stations will be offered on the bike course so participants should carry what they will need. There will be a lead and sweep vehicle for safety and convenience.

  • RUN – 3.4 miles. The run course is a loop. It’s rolling and very fast! Aid stations will be approximately every mile. They will be stocked with ice, water and sports drinks.
