XTERRA La Grande Offroad Triathlon 2013

Saturday, JULY 20, 2013 at 9:00 am

Morgan Lake, La Grande, Oregon

"Same great course (with a bit more singletrack),
same great weather (almost guaranteed)."

This offroad triathlon boasts a rugged mountain bike course and scenic run in the Blue Mountains of Northeast Oregon, as part of the XTERRA Points Series. It remains one of the few sanctioned and long-standing race events featuring the terrain of Northeast Oregon.

La Grande is an inexpensive destination: the camping is free and the hotels are affordable...and there is much more recreation opportunity if you can make a long weekend of it.

Course Description

  • Swim 1k in the mountain water of Morgan Lake, just above the city of La Grande and the Oregon Trail.
  • Bike 25k through the ponderosa and tamarak pines of the Blue Mountains, up a long climb on Glass Hill Road, and then through some crazy descents including the infamous Suicide Hill.
  • Run 10k on a challenging mix of terrain on dirt roads and trails.
