Footsloggers is proud to sponsor the seventh annual Watauga Lake Triathlon, taking place on Saturday, August 6, 2011.
The Watauga Lake Triathlon was inspired by the picturesque countryside and pristine waters of Watauga Lake. Watauga literally means “beautiful water” and it certainly holds true to its given name. Watauga holds the distinction of being the highest reservoir (more than 1900 feet above sea level) in the Tennessee river system. Surrounded by the Cherokee National Forest and flanked by the Appalachain Mountains, Watauga Reservoir is arguably the most scenic in the Tennessee River Watershed.
The Seventh Annual event will take place at 8:00am on Saturday, August 6, 2011, at the Sugar Grove Baptist Church and a local family farm perched on the banks of the lake in a scenic, pastoral setting. This will be a low-key festive event with overall and age group awards, and a post-race barbecue. FREE pre-race and post-race sport massages from a local certified sports massage practitioner.
