XTERRA Pagosa Springs
June 14th, 2015 — 750m swim / 14.6 mile bike / 3 mile trail run. (NEW COURSE DISTANCES)
Set at the base of the majestic San Juan mountains, you'll start with a wetsuit swim in the crystal clear mountain water of Hatcher Lake, from there you’ll traverse the best local trails for the bike and run legs through the Turkey Springs area. It's mostly fast flowing single track but you'll need to be on your game as there is a couple of technical sections. The winding trail system works you through spectacular Ponderosa and Aspen forest, which makes it rooty and rocky underfoot - you'll earn your rest at the finishing party!
The race will start at 10:00am sharp on Sunday 14th June. You will have race bibs as well as ankle strapped timing chips. The race cut off is 3.5 hours (1:30pm).
