Race Postponed

New Date: August 2, 2020

We are going to postpone the Ozark Valley Triathlon to August 2nd. The reasons are many, but even if the world opened tomorrow…we cannot produce a triathlon until Phase 3 is fully implemented.  Due to COVID-19, Lake Wedington Recreation Area which is part of the Ozark-St. Francis National Forests is currently closed and is unlikely to be open for this type of event in early June. Also, we will be providing a virtual option for the August 2 event should you choose not to participate in person.


Two triathlon distances (international and sprint), plus an aquabike category for individuals, a team category for the international distance and a sprint duathlon...all of which are held at Lake Wedington Recreation Area.

Lake Wedington is located 13 miles west of Fayetteville and is one of the most natural settings for a triathlon in the region. Both spectators and participants can enjoy the natural beauty of the area and combined with unique finisher medals, post-race food, awards and prizes all make this race one that people do not want to miss.


  • Sprint Triathlon - 400 yard swim, 13 mile bike, 2 mile run
  • International Triathlon - 1,000 yard swim, 19 mile bike and a 4 mile run
  • Aquabike - 1,000 yard swim, 19 mile bike
  • Sprint Duathlon - 2 mile run, 13 mile bike, 2 mile run

The swim takes place in Wedington Lake, the bike courses are on paved roads outside the park and both runs are held on a two-loop course inside the park on paved roads. The sprint distance run courses do not go up the infamous "hill from hell"!
