Richwood’s 33rd Scenic Mountain Triathlon

8:00 am - 5:00 pm

| $70 – $200

July 8, 2018 will bring the 33rd Anniversary of Richwood's Scenic Mountain Triathlon! Come join in a weekend of fun and excitement as we play host to West Virginia's oldest triathlon. Started in 1985, this event has become a favorite of triathletes and spectators alike. The entire race is held in the Monongahela National Forest (under special use permit). The race starts with a 1/2 mile swim in chilly Summit Lake, followed by a 17.1 mile bike ride over 3 Kennison Mountain (elevation of 3,988 feet) to the Cranberry Mountain Nature Center. The race concludes with a 6.2 mile run down to the Cranberry Glades and back to the Cranberry Mountain Nature Center to the finish line. Other activities include a Saturday packet pick-up and social from 3 p.m. - 7p.m. at the Chamber Office in Richwood and a post-race cookout at the finish line at the Nature Center on Sunday. Awards are given for numerous age groups, sexes and teams. Each athlete receives a free t-shirt and eats for free at the cookout. (Spectators are encouraged to eat for a small donation.) This is a spectator-friendly race with lots of food and fun for everyone.
