This is a great race for your 1st open water swim!
Located at 4701 Slalom Run in Owens Cross Roads, AL, the Racing Rivals Triathlon is a sprint distance tri that raises funds for college scholarships. The event is hosted by the Huntsville-area alumni chapters of Auburn University, Mississippi State University and the University of Alabama. The funds raised by this event will be split by the chapters based on the affiliation designated by each race participant during registration. In addition to the exciting individual competition, there will be a “rivalry” competition between the fans of each school and the winning chapter will the awarded a grand trophy and bragging rights for the next year. This will be an exciting competitive atmosphere with the thrill of the race and the anticipation of being on the eve of football season! The race will originate from Clearwater Lake in Owens Cross Roads, a beautiful private lake nestled in the valley just east of Green Mountain. The lake was designed and is used primarily for competitive water skiing. The very clear water and relatively shallow depths allow for excellent conditions for the swim portion of the competition.
