Thunderbird Off-road Mutlisport Extravaganza

 

September 7th and 8th, 2019 - 7:30 AM start for all races on both days

 

 

New for 2019!

 

 

We hope to scratch every possible itch this weekend! On Saturday we'll have the inaugural off-road triathlon, an aquabike and a scramble start duathlon at Clear Bay Trails. On Sunday, we'll have the annual long course aquathlon over at the Lake Thunderbird Boathouse.
 
The Triathlon Club of Oklahoma City, and Team Warmup Cycling welcome you to our filthy little celebration of dirt. We'll be having an off road triathlon on The World's Best Mountain Biking Trails In The World™.
 
On Saturday morning, We'll be down by the Discovery Nature Center boat ramp. That's within the Clear Bay area of Lake Thunderbird State Park. Transition will open at 6:30am and the start gun will be at 7:30am 
 
On Sunday morning, we'll be at The Lake Thunderbird Boathouse in the Indian Point area. Again transition at 6:30am and start gun at 7:30. Still too early to know if we'll start in waves, or en mass.
