Captain Thurmond’s Challenge is an extreme triathlon consisting of 28.5 miles of the most challenging mountain biking, whitewater and trail running the New River Gorge area has to offer! This year, the CTC will be held on August, 5th, 2017 with the starting line in quaint downtown Fayetteville, WV. This race is part of the New River Gorge Challenge Weekend so pack up the friends and family and head on out for a weekend of racing for every level! In addition to the Captain Thurmond’s Challenge on Saturday, August 5th, a charity 5K will also be held in town that morning with proceeds supporting the New River Gorge Learning Co-Op. There is also an awesome FAMILY-FRIENDLY triathlon held Sunday, August 6th in the town of Thurmond, WV, just a short drive from Fayetteville.
Spend the day with River & Trail Outfitters as they celebrate their 45th season! The first 45 people to make a reservation will receive 45% OFF Shenandoah Mellow Tubing. Park your car where the tubing trip ends, and take a shuttle 1 ½ miles upriver where you can splash and play through small rapids before beginning your leisurely float down the river. Dropping over shallow ledges along the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains, you are sure to enjoy this mellow and beautiful stretch of river. Add on a cooler tube, or a tube with a back rest, and spend the day with River & Trail staff! For those who are available, a tubing purchase will also give you free unlimited same-day climbing on the 25-foot rock wall! You can also stop by the Blue Heron Grill for a free hot dog. Reservations may be booked online or over the phone. Use promocode: 45YEARS for the savings. Reservations must be booked by June 10th at 8 PM. Rain date: Sunday, June 18th.
