Organiser's Description

Are you ready to TRI KNOX again? As our South Knoxville community is growing PBR wants to celebrate the addition of Suttrees Landing on the south side as becoming a staple in the riverscape! Come TRI with PBR and the South Knox Collective as we traverse through the South Knoxville beauty for a sprint, olympic, or half-iron distance triathlon also an Olympic or Half distance DUATHLON 
Sprint: 1000M Swim - 14 Mi Bike - 5k RunOlympic: 1900M Swim - 25 Mi Bike - 10k RunHalf: 2200M Swim - 56 Mi Bike - 13.1 Mi RunThe sprint will be a DOWNSTREAM 1000 meter swim ending at Suttrees Landing dock. The bike ride will head up Island Home for a 14-mile tour of some of S Knoxvilles finest scenery. the run will take off along the riverside through the historic Island Home neighborhood onto the Will Skelton Greenway. Expect a little elevation, or as we say Gently Rolling Hills on this run, but in the shade and along the breezy river. Cruise back to the finish line in Suttrees boardwalk and celebrate with Knoxvilles finest! The olympic distance will also include a nice DOWNSTREAM swim from Island Home to Suttrees and head out on the same bike path for a 25-mile tour of scenic roads. The run will follow the same path extending just past Meads Quarry parking and follow its way back to Suttrees Landing as well.  The half-iron distance will also start from Island Home with a brief 100-meter upstream swim before heading downstream to Suttrees. The bike route showcases the beauty of the South Knoxville countryside. Once back the run will follow the same path as you make your way past Meads Quarry to the Forks of the River and follow its way back to Suttrees Landing as well. The half-iron distance will have a cut-off of 8.5 hours with a bike cut-off of 12pm  
Stay tuned for updates on preview rides and runs, as well as open water swim clinics to help you get ready for the big day on the RIVER! Swag will include a nice shirt, an option to purchase a hoodie, and a post-race meal after you get that hard-earned finishers medal and gift!
