Are you ready to race? Now is the time to start preparing for the Revolution3 Triathlon, scheduled for September 22, 2013. There will be Half and Olympic distance races, including a $60,000 prize purse.
This event is replacing the Ironman Triathlon hosted in Branson the past three years.
The Revolution3 Triathlon will start in Table Rock Lake, with the Half distance athletes completing a 1.2 mile swim, while Olympic distance athletes will complete a 1500 meter swim. Competitors will then move onto a closed-road bike course along scenic highways with breathtaking mountain views. The challenging course features many technical ascents and descents, and will take Half and Olympic distance athletes a total of 56 miles and 25 miles, respectively. The run course will wind competitors through historic downtown Branson, completed with two loops for the 13.1 mile Half distance and one loop for the 6.2 mile Olympic distance.
Rev3’s course provides plenty of prime viewing areas for spectators, too. Races are weekend long events and are tailored to be family events, with activities, concerts and other attractions creating a fun environment for all attendees.
Registration for the Revolution3 Triathlon is open now. Registration cost is $250 for the Half and $150 for the Olympic race.
