Have you ever wanted to compete in a triathlon or watch an event? Come play outside in beautiful Aspen, CO! Check out the Outside in Aspen Triathlon/Duathlon/Aquabike competition starting at 7:00 a.m. on June 9, 2012.
If you are a beginner, the triathlon, which is a USA Triathlon sanctioned event, is the perfect race for you to get your feet wet while still competing on a challenging course.
If a competition involving water isn’t what floats your boat, try the dry Duathlon, which consists of a 2-mile run, a 17-mile bike ride and ending with a 4-mile finishing run.
Not into running? Then the Aquabike Duathlon is just the right fit for you! Get started in the water with an 800-yard swim and then jump on the saddle for a 17-mile bike ride while taking in the beautiful scenery of Aspen.
Being that the competition is a USA Triathlon sanctioned event, all participants must be members or purchase a single day event permit. The cost to participate in the competition ranges from $50 – $90 depending on the event and membership status.
Are you planning on competing with a group of friends? Staying at an Aspen Vacation Rental may be the perfect option for you, your teammates and friends to stay. Aspen rentals usually provide you with a full-kitchen so you may prepare the meals you need before heading out to compete. They also have a living room, fireplace, entertainment system (TV, Stereo and DVD player), full bathrooms and one or more bedrooms. This allows for everyone to bring the fun inside to one place after your outdoor adventures.
As far as value is concerned, Aspen luxury home rentals are a great option for large groups, especially when you consider the need for multiple rooms and cost of food.
No matter what you decide to do, or where you decide to stay in Aspen, you are definitely in for a great time! For more information about the Outside in Aspen Triathlon please visit: Outside in Apen Triathlon/Duathlon.
Good luck…be sure to enjoy all that Aspen has to offer!
