Winter Challenge is coming.
Are you ready?
Mark your calendars. The date for the 12th annual Winter Challenge Off-Road Triathlon has been set!
Date: Feb 21, 2015
Location: Dome Farms, SC
Winter Challenge XII Off-Road Triathlon
7-Mile Trail Run
10-Mile Mountain Bike
For those among you who have yet to experience the bliss of your first WC, here's what you can expect:
1. One of the most unique and beautiful settings you've ever raced on. Dome Farms, which is situated on the Edisto River Swamp, offers countless miles of diverse off-road trail plus a 75-acre pond where you will get your paddle on.
2. Competition and Camaraderie. The fellowship of the Winter Challenge and the post race festivities lend themselves to camaraderie found at few other venues. Stick around and take home a few new friendships! But don't mistake friendship for lack of competition. While many athletes are here to race against themselves, there are more than a few die hard enthusiasts who gas up the race with some serious skills, raising the stakes to a surprisingly high level of competition! Rivalry is always in the air, and getting your name on the Trophy Cup is a matter not to be taken lightly.
3. Never Dull! We at the WC refuse to rest on the status quo, and we promise to keep things fresh and new for the WC Alums. As always, you have our solemn guarantee of a rocking good time.
For Your Racing Pleasure, We Present the Following...
As always, the main event at the Winter Challenge is an off-road triathlon consisting of a 7-Mile Trail Run, a 6-Mile Kayak, and a 10-Mile Mountain Bike.
For those interested in teaming up, a Relay option will be available, allowing you to compete as a 2 or 3 person team. And if you're having trouble finding a teammate, give us a shout and we'll do our best to pair you up with someone. Even better, give a shout out on our Facebook page, and you're sure to find some takers.
The Winter Challenge also features a Duathlon consisting of 6 miles of Trail Running and 8 miles of Mountain Biking. The Duathlon course is broken into three segments -- a 2.25 mile run, followed by an 8-mile bike, and finishing with a 3.75 mile run to the finish, all based on a shortened version of the Triathlon route. This has proven to be a popular option among those not ready to tackle the kayak leg.
