Set in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, the Luray Triathlon offers two exciting distances: sprint and international. After a swim in Lake Arrowhead, athletes bike the scenic yet challenging bike route along the woods and farms of the Shenandoah Valley then finish up with an out and back run on the paved roads of Page County.
