This race is an annual tradition for both local athletes and visitors from afar, weekend warriors, family relay teams, and everyone top notch in between. The course starts with a 6-mile bike leg through the village of Franconia, up Butter Hill, and through the beautiful White Mountain National Forest; followed by a 1/3 mile swim across pristine Echo Lake; and finishes with a 3.1 mile hike/run across the slopes of renowned Cannon Mountain. Although the climb will look a little different this year, you will not miss out on any of the vertical gain you expect year after year, and you will be rewarded for your hard work with a refreshing beer at Iron Furnace Brewing.  Proceeds from the Top Notch Triathlon benefit the Lafayette Recreation Department, which comprises the communities of Franconia, Easton, and Sugar Hill, as well as the Franconia Life Squad. Since its inception, the Top Notch Triathlon has raised over $125,000, which has been used to support an array of projects, from building the gazebo and the new pavilion at the Dow Park to purchasing soccer goals and repaving the multi-use skating rink. 

So we only have 1 question...ARE YOU TOP NOTCH?
