Welcome to the beautiful lakeside community of Findley Lake, NY.   Just off of I-86, two hours south of Buffalo, NY,  and 20 minutes from Erie, PA.  Challenging and beautiful! No cut-off times

Sprint & Olympic Triathlon & AquaBike:

SPRINT participants will begin with a 750m swim in the gorgeous Findley Lake. Then ride a hilly 14.44 mile bike course followed by a 5K run on the flat and fast roadway hugging the shore line of the lake.

The OLYMPIC participants will complete 2 loops of the swim and bike course. The 10K run will continue around the lake to their appropriate turnaround point.

 Paratriathletes are welcomed!  

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

*Double Findley - Really challenge yourself with the Double Findley - Race the Sprint AND the Olympic Tri or AquaBike (all athletes must finish the Sprint that begins at 7:00am and be back to the start line for the 9:00am Olympic Tri). More swag and bigger bragging rights!

**Relay teams or 2 or 3 are welcome to compete in the Sprint or Olympic Triathlon events only.


***Please see FAQs section regarding bringing dogs to the race


A 750m course in the quiet waters of Findley Lake. You will swim around the island located off the shores of The Camp at Findley.

The Olympic triathletes will swim two loops of the course.

Wetsuits are legal but not mandatory.

You are welcome to wear a personal swim buoy if you are more comfortable.  We would ask that you start at the back of the pack so as to not interfere with other swimmers.

LOUD Performance will be onsite pre-race for minor bike maintenance.

SAG vehicle on the course will be provided by Pearl City Cycle.

There is no aid station on the bike course.  There will be one in transition before you head out.

SPRINT racers will turn around at the 1.55 mile marker and OLYMPIC runners will continue on around the end of the lake to the 3.1 mile mark and turn around.

 Fully stocked aid stations with Hammer Nutrition products at every mile.
