Race Notes: The Crystal Lake Triathlon Race is a USAT Sanctioned Sprint Distance Triathlon in Averill Park, NY on Crystal Lake. The race is one of the most scenic races in the area. The race begins at the Crystal Cove beach and features a single loop swim. Transitioning into the bike leg of our race our racers set out on a gorgeous out and back bike course. After biking around the far side of the lake it begins its first descent into our rolling hills course that passes through the beautiful country side of Rennselaer County. Finally, the racers finish on a mostly flat run course around Crystal Lake.
