Race Description

Come join the fun and venue presented by the Lewis County Chamber of Commerce.

For those participants who are not quite comfortable in the water yet but still would like to be a part of the event, you can register in the duathlon category. That event will be a 1 mile run, then the same bike and run as the main event. You’ll choose DUATHLON category when registering.

Course Descriptions:


The 1000 meter swim will be in the beautiful Stonewall Jackson Lake. The lake surrounds the resort and the mountains. Waves and chop are light and water quality is excellent.

The bike course is a one loop course on smooth, rural country roads. The course has a few challenging hills but they are well worth the view at the top. Athletes are certain to enjoy this scenic and challenging bike route. Police and volunteers man each intersection and turns are marked with directional signs.

The run leaves from the transition area near the Roanoke Building and winds through the resort roads. It is an out and back course. The run consist of no major hills and provides a great view of the Resort and the Stonewall Jackson Lake. Aid stations are positioned every 1.5 miles.

USAT Rules and Information

USAT Most Commonly Violated Rules

ALL USAT members must show proof of a current membership at packet pick up. If you have recently renewed a membership, then you MUST print out a temporary card or receipt of payment (that shows length of the membership period) to show at packet pick up. We will not take your word for it that your membership is current; you must SHOW us. Failure to do so will result in having to pay the one-day fee of $15.

You can go to the USAT WEBSITE where you can renew your membership or print out a temporary card. You can also renew your membership at packet pick up if that’s easier for you.

If I entered my USAT information when I registered, then why do I need to show my card at packet pick up? USAT rules state that all USAT members must show a valid membership card at packet pick up and failure to do so will result in having to pay the 1-day fee. Our events are sanction by USAT, therefore, we must follow these rules. Our website is not connected to USAT’s website, so the information that you enter when you register could be incorrect. We must physically document the current expiration date of your membership when you pick up your packet as this is the only way we can confirm 100% that your membership is in fact current.

USAT’s “Age Up” Policy:

An athlete’s age for any USAT sanctioned race will be his/her age as of Dec. 31, 2018 . The age he/she is on 12/31 will determine his/her racing age group. If an athlete is due to “age-up” into the next group, it will happen at the beginning of the year, not after the athlete’s birthday. This action aligns regular U.S. age group racing with the method used by USA Triathlon for its National Rankings Program and its new Grand Prix Series.

Example: John Smith is 39 and will turn 40 on November 20, 2018.

John will be considered 40 for all 2018 races – and will race in the 40-44 age group at all 2018 races.

Sally Jones is 29 and will turn 30 on July 3, 2018.
Sally will be considered 30 for all 2018 races – and will race in the 30-34 age group at all 2018 races.
