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 of all levels.
Held successfully in 2020 with Covid protocols in place. Planning on season #5 in 2021; if Covid restrictions force us to cancel, all registered participants will automatically be deferred to 2022 or able to transfer to another event that is able to be held.
