Scenic Mountain Triathlon

Come join in a weekend of fun and excitement as we play host to West Virginia's oldest triathlon. Since 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 .5 mile swim in chilly Summit Lake. Next is 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. Triathletes also have a Saturday packet pick-up and social from 3-7:00 p.m. at the Chamber Office in Richwood. On Sunday there will be a post-race cookout at the finish line at the Nature Center. While the cookout is free for the athletes we welcome spectators to join us for a small donation. (Packets can also be picked up the morning of the race.) This is a spectator-friendly race with lots of food and fun for everyone. Each athlete receives a free t-shirt and awards are given for numerous age groups, genders and teams. The event is organized by the Richwood Area Chamber of Commerce and various sponsors. To register for this event, go to our website or visit and lookup "Scenic Mountain Triathlon".
