July 13, 2014 will bring the 29th Anniversary of Richwood's Scenic
Mountain Triathlon. Come join in a weekend of fun and excitement as we
play host to West Virginia's oldest triathlon. Starting in 1985 this event
has become a favorite of triathletes and spectators alike.
The entire race is held in the Monongahela National Forest
(under special use permit). The race starts with a .5 mile swim in
chilly Summit Lake. Next is a 17.1 mile bike ride over 3,988 feet Kennison
Mountain to the Cranberry Mountain Nature Center. The race concludes with a 6.2 mile run down to the Cranberry
Glades and back to the Cranberry Mountain Nature Center for the finish.
Other activities include a pasta dinner on Saturday in Richwood and a post
race cookout at the finish line at the Nature Center on Sunday. This is a
spectator-friendly race with lots of food and fun for everyone.
Awards are given for numerous age groups, sexes and teams. Each
athlete eats for free at the pasta dinner and the cookout. Also, each
athlete receives a free t-shirt.
The event is organized by the Richwood Area Chamber of Commerce.
This year's race is sponsored by:
