Pine Hill Arms Triathlon is Saturday
Belleayre — The annual Pine Hill Arms Triathlon takes off this Saturday, March 21. This is a unique iron-man style triathlon that should not be missed by area athletes. Participants can compete as individuals or as teams. Over 100 participants will participate in this challenging “ski-bike-run” event.
Tri-athletes will begin their race on skis from the top of the Tomahawk lift exactly at 1:30 p.m., crossing the Belleayre Ridge trail and riding downhill to find their bikes at the Discovery Lodge.
After the grueling 10-mile bike ride, down from Belleayre through the winding Highmount roads into Pine Hill then back to Belleayre, runners will ascend back down to Pine Hill completing the final five-mile run.
The Pine Hill Arms will host all participants with an awards party, gourmet bayou buffet, live music, and dancing. Pre-registration is currently taking place by calling the Arm’s at 254-4012 or by visiting their website at pinehillarms.com. Registration on competition day will be held in the Longhouse Lodge from 9 a.m. until noon.
