Ready to take on “The Beast of The East”? For our fully realized championship length course we’ve taken the renowned XTERRA Way Over Yonder course and added some new twists to challenge and inspire racers. Win your age group and be known as the USA Off Road Triathlon champion and be eligible to represent the USA at the 2021 ITU Cross Triathlon World Championship.
Your journey starts with our famous 200 meter beach run before entering into magnificent Wawayanda Lake for your 1500 meter open water swim (two 750 meter loops). From the beach you’ll head into transition and out on our 19 mile Mountain Bike course. We’ve remixed the Way Over Yonder course with a combination of new fire road and single track including some technical trails in reverse (Pickle & Look Out). Don’t be fooled by the modest 1700 feet elevation gain – there’s plenty of rocky punchy climbs that you’ll need to power through. Mountain Bike course aid station will be at mile 6 will be well stocked with Gatorade, Water, GU energy gels, Clif Bars and more.
After finishing the Mountain Bike course racers will head back into transition and out for the 7 mile Trail Run. The run course features amazing views as it encircles Wawayanda Lake. The course is a series of rolling hills with no killer climb, but plenty of rocky goodness and water crossings to keep racers sharp. Trail run aid station at 3.5 mile mark and will be stocked same as the one on the mountain bike course. From the final fire road section you’ll head into the finisher chute and take with you a special sense of accomplishment that comes with completing one tough course. Plenty of post race food and festivities follows the race. Extensive prizes including USA Triathlon National Champion shirts for all age group winners. Full race maps of the 2020 course will be posted soon. We are working with lodging and air travel partners for special discounts for racers coming to the USA Triathlon Off-Road National Championship.
