Lockport, NY (PRWEB) February 21, 2014
The Great Lakes 100 Mile Triathlon Series has scheduled two triathlons for 2014. The Lake Erie Race will be held June 7 at Geneva State Park in Ohio and the Lake Ontario race will be held Oct. 4 at Camp Kenan in Barker, N.Y. This will be the third season for the Great Lakes 100 Mile Triathlon Series.
The new season will begin on June 7 at Geneva State Park as the Lake Erie triathlon will include a 1-mile Lake Erie swim, 84-mile bike ride through the Ohio countryside and a 15-mile run through Geneva-on-the-Lake. Du-athletes can also attempt to complete a 1-mile trail run, 84-mile bike ride and 15-mile run. Relay teams may be formed by any combination of two or three athletes.
The Lake Ontario race will be held on Oct. 4 at Camp Kenan in Western New York. This triathlon will again consist of a mile swim, 84-mile bike ride and 15-mile run. After the Lake Ontario swim, competitors will bike southward away from the lake and through the orchards and farms of Niagara County. Bikers will then loop back northward through the City of Lockport and over the historic Erie Canal. Once back at the lake, the 15-mile run will begin, which will run along the southern shore of Lake Ontario. The duathlon and relay will also be available.
Successful participants of either the Lake Erie or Lake Ontario race will receive a custom “Victor’s” jersey and finisher medal to commemorate their accomplishment. Athletes who complete both 100-mile races in 2014 will also receive a 200-Mile Series Finisher belt buckle.
