The Paris Mountain Triathlon is a one of a kind event scheduled for April 6, 2013 in beautiful Paris Mountain State Park - Greenville, SC. An event that is not for the faint of heart, the Paris Mountain Sprint Triathlon will test your determination as you swim, bike and run at the foot of the tallest peak in Greenville County. Athletes will begin the day in a time trial start format in the spring fed waters of Lake Placid within the Paris Mountain State Park. The 500 meter swim will be wetsuit legal and over before you know it. But don't worry, there is plenty of time to be spent on the 2-loop13 mile bike route that rolls along rural roads on the footsteps of Paris Mountain. The 5K run is fairly flat with only a moderate rise along the smooth Paris Mountain trails to the turn around. From there it is back on the pavement and downhill to the finish line.
This event benefits the SADS Foundation.
All SCTS events benefit the SADS (Sudden Arrhythmia Death Syndromes) Foundation. Sudden arrhythmia death syndromes are genetic heart conditions that can cause sudden death in young, apparently healthy people. These conditions can be treated and deaths can be prevented.
