Threshold Academy (meaning Jeff and Alex Gaura) has created a 6-part series of events for aspiring triathletes and cycling enthusiasts to socialize and get in a good workout as part of your multisport season.  We gather at Oakboro District Park and ride 47 miles up and down Morrow Mountain, then do a 2-mile run/walk at Oakboro District Park.  Although the distance would characterize this as a half-ironman brick, it is appropriate training both for full and standard-distance athletes.  Cycling enthusiasts are encouraged to join us for the ride portion of the day.

Cost is a flat $36, regardless of the number of times you choose to participate.  Registration includes USA Triathlon’s insurance for the duration of the season for this event.

We leave Oakboro District Park at 8 am.  We are sponsored by powerbar, offering their products, water, and hammer hydration at the summit, 23.5 miles from the start.  There is water after 1 mile on the run.  There is no mid-ride support for anything mechanical or medical that may occur.  All riders participate at their own risk; however, a portion of your fee covers USA Triathlon Insurance for all our events for the season.

We limit participation to 30 riders.  Once the inventory of yearly passes is sold, the event closes for new registration.

Inclement Weather Decisions are made no later than 8 pm the night before to all registered participants.  Click Facebook page for updates
