Team GECKO is swim/bike/run & JUMPING for JOY at the announcement of our first triathlon ever: XTERRA PAGOSA SPRINGS – to be held on September 15th 2013 as part of the 2014 XTERRA America Tour Championships.
XTERRA Pagosa Springs will be 1km (1000m) swim/ 18.5 mile off-road bike/ 6.9mile trail run
Be the first to race the inaugural XTERRA Pagosa Springs, and we guarantee you'll be back every year! Set in the authentic mountain town of Pagosa Springs, at the base of the majestic San Juan mountains, you'll start with a wetsuit swim in the crystal clear mountain water of the pristine Lake Pagosa, from there we've chosen the best of our trails for the bike and run legs. You'll traverse the edges of narrow rim canyons with incredible vistas and mountain views. It's mostly fast flowing single track but you'll need to be on your game as there is a couple of technical sections. The winding trail system works you through spectacular Ponderosa and Aspen forest, which makes it rooty and rocky underfoot - you'll earn your rest at the finishing party!
