The Great Race

When: Sun., July 5, 10 a.m. 2015

On your mark, get set, go! Folks take to land and water for some friendly competition in the Great Race Triathlon/Duathlon. Triathletes tackle a scenic 3.1-mile run, 12-mile bike and 3-mile paddle in the 36th annual event in and around Lake Champlain. Two-, three- and four-person teams row their boats in the canoe and kayak divisions, featuring the first-ever inclusion of the standup-paddleboard category. Carried out in conjunction with Bay Day festivities, the physical challenges are followed by live music, food and an awards ceremony honoring top contenders. On this day, everyone is a winner.

Price: $55-135; preregister.
