Smith Mountain Lake Triathlon

The Smith Mountain Lake Triathlon is the first open water swim triathlon in the western part of the state. This race has been around for a long time and is one of the most popular in the VTS. This event benefits Virginia Amateur Sports and The ALS Foundation. The water for the swim has historically been in the upper 60's so wetsuits are recommended, but are not mandatory. Please note: Expected Water Temperature: Between 62-66F (62F in 2009, 67F in 2010, 68F in 2011, 68F in 2012). (The exact temperature will be posted Friday morning.)

The swim starts and finishes at the State Park’s well-groomed swimming beach. The bike portion is 20K and is rolling throughout. The run course is entirely inside of the park and is a nice flat-to rolling-out-and-back affair. (The triathlon is definitely a nice event to add to your early season schedule!)

This event benefits Virginia Amateur Sports, a Roanoke based non-profit group working to promote access to sporting events of all kinds to Virginia residents. Please consider making a donation to this worthy cause during the registration process.

Longtime Roanoke resident and triathlete, Dick Kelley, passed away in 2009 after a battle with ALS. If you would like to make a donation to the cause, you may do so when you register.
