WELCOME TO A CHALLENGE YOU WON’T SOON FORGET; Swim 1.2 miles, Bike 56 miles, Run 13.1 miles

NEW for our 5th year; addition of an Intermediate distance race; Swim 1.2 miles, Bike 28 miles, Run 6miles.

Similar elevations to the courses in Lake Placid but NO CUT OFF TIMES!  Incredibly stocked aid stations on the bike and run courses.  Catered meal, STBC Beer Garden, Music, Swag, and a fabulous race in a beautiful setting.  

One hour south of Buffalo, NY, and one hour north of Erie, PA with easy access off of I-90.

 Hilly, challenging, and gorgeous courses will leave you exhausted, happy, and probably a little sore, but more than glad that you chose this epic race. 

Open to individuals and relay teams of 2 or 3.  AquaBike option offered.  Paratriathletes welcome!  

Join us for this grass-roots, athlete centered event.  Don't miss your chance to call yourself a CassadagaMan!




Begin your morning with a gorgeous 1.2 mile swim around the perimeter of the Lower Lake of the Cassadaga Lakes.

Both the Long distance and Intermediate participants will complete the same, one loop course of the lake.

NO cut-off time!

Counter-clockwise course.

Sandy bottom entrance and exit.  

 In-water wave starts for men, women and relay teams.

Wetsuit legal but not required.

We do allow personal swim buoys for your own comfort.  We ask that you would begin at the back of the back so as to not interfere with other racers. 


This course is as beautiful as it is challenging. It will take you on an epic, hilly, beautiful ride that will give you up-hills, down-hills, rolling fun, fast curves with views of Lake Erie from the top of the Chautauqua Ridge and aromas of the plentiful concord grape vineyards that you will go whizzing by.  The course is a 28-mile loop that the Long distance athletes will complete twice.

NO cut-off times!

Two aid stations on course; mile 14/42 and mile 28 stocked with Hammer Nutrition products, plenty of water and other treats with port-a-johns at both.

Opportunities for your spectators to see you go by as you head out to your second loop for the Long distance participants.  Special Needs Bag can be dropped off at check-in on race morning.

 SAG vehicle and bike support.


Participants in the AquaBike competition will complete the event after the bike.   

RUN COURSE - Intermediate distance

6 mile out-and-back course with aid stations at every mile.  A lovely run along the three lakes of Cassadaga with one beautiful shaded downhill that of course you have to go back up.  

STRAVA link to Intermediate run course

RUN COURSE - Long distance

13.1 miles on quiet, shaded, country roads, that are crazy-ass hilly!  ;) We are not joking. But you will love it!  

There are two out-and-backs on the course with a total of nine fully stocked aid stations and three with port-a-johns.
