This is the first year for this event and the race committee. We are hopinig to establish an Adventure Tri here in the greater Huntington, WV area that is reflective of our passion for Adventure Tri's that offers the right degree of challenge and laid back atmosphere for all Adventure Tri athletes to enjoy. The Race committee believes that this is the first WV Adventure Tri to break the paddle portion into Classifications. The Paddle Classifications are as follows;
Recreation Kayaks - kayaks less then 14.6 feet in length.
SUP - If you stand up on it to paddle you are a SUP
Fast Kayaks - kayaks longer then 14.6 feet in length
The Bike course will be an open road course. The run course will be on both trails and open roads and the paddle is on Beech Fork Lake. www.lrh.usace.army.mil/Missions/Civil-Works/Recreation/West-Virginia/Beech-Fork-Lake/
