Spring is fast approaching, and with it come the Appalachian Power Smith Mountain Lake Triathlon. The event will be held at Smith Mountain Lake State Park on Saturday, May 5, 2012 beginning at 9am. Click here for event and registration information.

The Smith Mountain Lake Triathlon is a well established, beginner friendly race. It’s also features an open water swim (the first of the season in Western Virginia). Historically the water temperature at Smith Mountain Lake has been in the upper 60’s, so wetsuits are recommended, but not mandatory for the 750 meter swim. The bike portion of the race is 20k over a rolling course, and the run (5k, all inside the park) is out and back and ranges from flat to rolling. This is a really great race, and a great way to break into triathlons.
