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. The water for the swim has historically been in the upper 60′s so wetsuits are recommended but are not mandatory. The event takes place on Saturday, May 4, 2013 at 9am at Smith Mountain Lake State park in Huddleston, VA. This event benefits Virginia Amateur Sports and The ALS Foundation.

The event has a 820.21 yard swim, 12.43 mile bike leg and a 3.11 mile run. The swim starts and finishes at the State Parks well groomed swimming beach. The bike is 20K and rolling throughout. The run course is all inside the park and is a nice flat to rolling out and back affair.

Expected Water Temperature is between 62-66F (62F in 2009, 67F in 2010, 68F in 2011, 68F in 2012). Exact temperature to be posted Friday morning before the event.
