Enjoy the majestic Sawatch Mountain Range scenery with the 2 highest peaks in Colorado as a backdrop and prove you have the stamina and endurance to compete in one of the Rocky Mountain’s Ultimate Sprint Triathlon/Duathlons. This event is becoming one of the premier Triathlon/Duathlons in Colorado because of its scenic beauty, breathtaking courses, challenging conditions, and meticulous organization.
