Thank you for visiting the Claytor Lake Triathlon website. The idea for the Claytor Lake Triathlon started in 2010 when co-owner of the Bike Barn (Johnny Garrett) approached the owner of Pulaski Bikes (Mike McMillion) and Claytor Lake State Park (Chris Doss, manager and Matt Wright, chief ranger) about the possibility of organizing  a triathlon that could be held on the open water, as opposed to a swimming pool, and in an suburban environment, away from urban traffic. The vision was shared and we held our first event on September 10th, 2011. With only 1 month of promotion the event attracted 52 participants. 

During the planning stages for the 2012 Claytor Lake Triathlon, TriAdventure joined us and took the lead role as race coordinators. One year later, on September 22, 2012 we held our 2nd annual Claytor Lake Triathlon which hosted 157 individual competitors and 17 relay teams.

We appreciate all of you who have participated over the years and hope to see you this year on Saturday, September 10th 2016!

Early packet pick-up is held at the Bike Barn (422 N. Main Street, Blacksburg - parking in rear of store) from 3pm-6pm the Friday before the event.

Would you particpate in a "alternative" triathlon in which you had a choice to run a 10K or bike a 20K, then paddle 1000 meters, ending with a 200 meter swim in which the kayak would be towed behind you, serving as your "lifeguard"?Yes
