You will swear you’re racing a Giro D’Italia stage! The setting for your run is the spectacular Auburn State Park – breathtaking views along the canyon rim, looking down at the American River.
You’ll enjoy a grass roots feel with a focus on delivering the best possible experience to each and every athlete. The Auburn Triathlon will be a weekend you never forget! Enjoy the fabulous T2 and Finish venue of the American River Canyon Overlook. with lots of spectator shade and multi-loop vantage points!
