Lake James State Park:

The race will take place at the beautiful new Lake James State Park - located about 40 miles east of Asheville and about 65 miles northwest of Charlotte along I-40 (near Marion, NC).

There is lots of parking only a short distance from the main race site - one of the really nice amenities that we enjoy in staging these events at North Carolina State Parks.

Course Descriptions:


The swim for the Lake James 50 will take place in beautiful Lake James. The triangular shaped swim course will start and finish on the beach. Lake James is a fairly deep lake with very clear water and being that the lake is situated in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
This will be a time trial start - with a participant starting the race every couple of seconds.
Participants can start where they want (up front for faster swimmers - in the back for more timid swimmers) and with whom they want to start the race with (fathers & sons, buddies, etc.)


The 40K bike course basically encircles Lake James. The transition area sits at an elevation of about 1200 feet above sea level. The bike course reaches a maximum elevation of about 1450 feet, so Keep Reading
