Welcome to the beautiful lakeside community of Cassadaga, NY. Just off of I-90, one hour south of Buffalo, NY and 1 hour north of Erie, PA. Join us for a triathlon we think you will find challenging and a whole lot of fun! Great for individuals and relay teams.
Held successfully in 2020 with Covid protocols in place. Planning on another great race in 2021; if Covid restrictions force us to cancel this race, all registered participants will automatically be deferred to 2022 or able to transfer to another event that is able to be held.
KBR ~KAYAK, BIKE, RUN.
This event is for you if you love to have fun and enjoy the beauty of the outdoors on a Saturday morning in September in Western NY. 1 mile kayak, 13 mile bike and 2 mile run. Using the same bike and run courses as the Southern Tier Triathlon Club Summer Tri Series, you will see why they are starting to call Cassadaga the new mecca for triathletes. Paratriathletes are welcomed!
We all start in the water, lined up and ready to loop the lake along the perimeter for this fun kayak portion of the race that is one mile in length. Any kayak is acceptable for this event. With “kayak pullers” ready to pull your craft out of the water as you zoom back to the beach your feet will stay “mostly” dry as you run up to transition.
It’s hilly, really fun and a great challenge for every level rider.
The 13 mile course is all right hand turns.
SAG vehicle on course.
The 2 mile run begins as you run out of transition. Follow the cones along the fence and out of the gate, running next to the Finish Line. You will run on the left side of the road to the end of Park Avenue and take a left turn onto Dale Drive, staying to your left. Running along the lake, the course is mostly flat with one little “bump” continue to the turn-around point and head back the same way to the finish line.
Stocked aid station in transition and at the turnaround point with Hammer Nutrition products and water.
The race can be entered as a relay team of 2 or 3 members; each completing 1-2 of the event legs.
FREE parking in several locations within a very short walk to the race site. Kayak drop off available at the race site with assistance provided. No parking on Park Avenue.
