Take on the French Broad triathlon

Written by 

The French Broad Challenge Triathlon will be held at 5 p.m. Saturday, May 26, at Carrier Park in Asheville as part of the weekend-long Mountain Sports Festival.

Teams of two and three people will tackle a 1.5-mile run, a 2.5-mile paddle, an 11-mile bike and a final 2.9-mile run. The race will start and finish inside the track at Carrier Park.

The run will include a portion of the French Broad River Greenway, with the boat launch taking place at the Asheville Outdoor Center. The paddle is downstream to Jean Web Park. Following a bike route up and down Riverside Drive participants will run back to Carrier Park.

There will be two relay categories: a three-person where one person completes the first run and paddle, one person completes the bike course and one person completes the final run leg. In the two-person category, both team members will complete the initial run leg and paddle leg (in the same boat) and split the bike and final run legs.
