The Lake Lure Sprint starts and finishes on the white sandy beach of Rumbling Bald Resort. The 750M swim is a time trial swim start, with participants going off every 2-3 seconds. The transition area is just a short run out of the water.
The 22.3K bike course takes you through scenic views of the Hickory Nut Gorge mountains, finishing back at the same transition area.
The steady, but uphill 5K run carries you into a beautiful valley paralleling Bald Mountain Golf Course and back down with a gentle cruise to the beachside Finish Line!
Returning for the 14th annual year, the scenic mountain town of Lake Lure hosts the Lake Lure Olympiad (LLO), WNC's Premier Destination Sports Event on August 10-12, 2018. The LLO boasts multiple race events, challenging courses and entertaining outdoor activities for family and friends at diverse scenic locations. It is also a non-profit organization bringing people together in the spirit of friendly competition for the benefit of charitable giving.
Over the past 13 years, athletes of all ages and abilities have participated and continue to rave about the area's scenic beauty, delicious finish line food, and countless welcoming volunteers which all make the Olympiad experience truly special and unique.
Bring your kids and let them experience the same thrill of competition that mom and dad love, plus they earn medals too at the Junior Olympiad.
