Every June on the shores of Keuka College, the Keuka Lake Tri consists of Sprint and Intermediate distances, and a scenic bike ride in beautiful wine country with a flat and fast run along the lake. As a bonus, the post race experience goes above and beyond - offering a hot meal, salad bar, made to order options and dessert.
The Peasantman Steel Distance Triathlon Series takes place on the third Sunday of every August at Indian Pines Park in Penn Yan, with Sprints right on up through Fulls. Our own 'Steel Distances' are just slightly longer than traditional triathlon distances, due to a longer bike course.
The benefits of a USAT sanctioned race can be summed up in this paragraph from the USA Triathlon website:
"The term 'USA Triathlon sanctioned' indicates to the event organizer, participant athletes, host communities and others that race planning and preparation has met the requirements established by USA Triathlon. It signifies that the race director has completed a thorough review of the swim, bike and run courses, has evaluated and planned for medical, emergency, safety and volunteer support and will conduct the event according to the USA Triathlon Competitive Rules. Among the materials submitted for USA Triathlon review and approval are safety plans, course maps and event details. The process is online so it can be adjusted for changes and effectively integrated as a planning tool for race directors."
