Description:  A calm lake and abundant trails make Bonelli Park the perfect setting for the XTERRA Renegade Off Road events. The triathlon includes a 1/2 mile swim, 15 mile (2-loop) bike and 3 mile trail run.  The course is challenging enough for the seasoned triathlete yet short enough to entice novices.  The “off road” mountain bike course has a beginner/intermediate rating and is a mixture of paved roads, fire roads and single track trails.  The trail run is hilly with a mixture of paved paths, fire roads and single track trails. XTERRA Renegade participants are eligible for XTERRA Championship points. There is a recreational triathlon available (not eligible for XTERRA points) as well as a duathlon, which travels on the same course and is a 3.0 mile run, 15.0 mile (2-loop) bike and finishes with another 3.0 mile run.  Trail runners love the 3-Mile Trail Run Challenge. Beginners will love it for the scenic lake and forest views and experienced runners will enjoy the challenging trails. Don’t just spectate, participate!
