July 19, 2014 BENSON GRIZZLY BEAR TRI-OBSTACLON
Click on the registration/info button below for more details listed on RACEROSTER.com
The toughest non-traditional triathlon ever! Start out on your bike for an easy 5 miles downhill to Lake Champlain, swim 3/8 mile, get back on your bike and travel a not so easy 5 miles uphill back to Shale Hill Adventure Farm and then finish up with a paltry 5+ mile obstacle race with over 50 obstacles and challenges between you and the finish line! Piece of cake, right? If you finish first you will get the whole cake! This race is going to set the standard for a new breed of triathlete who is looking for a new challenge!! This will be a timing chipped race and we will give you splits at all transitions. This race has quite a bit of elevation change and when you throw in the ANACONDA, it is sure to constrict you!
You will need to be a real animal to complete this one. We will also hold an elite race for those of you wanting a harder challenge. The elite will bike 20 miles (on a loop), swim twice, and then complete 10 miles on the ORTC Obstacle course! This is sure to separate the men from the boys and the women from the girls! Space is limited, so sign up early and get your training on! Great prizes for top three finishers in all divisions. Medals for all finishers. Bring a team (combined times or relay, you decide!) Of course t-shirts and complimentary THOMAS DAIRY CHOCOLATE MILK & bananas at the finish are included! College or Military ID, get an additional $5.00 refund at check in!
