Set in the picturesque foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountain
s near the friendly town of Luray
, Virginia, this region features the Luray International
race on Saturday, August 20th and the Luray Sprint
on Sunday, August 21th in 2016 with a special award for individual athletes who complete both races in the same weekend – the “Luray Double” award. In 2015, 77 athletes earned this special award.
Both races take place at Lake Arrowhead Park, a 134-acre recreation area located 4 miles outside the Luray town limits. Built in the early 1970’s, the park has a 34-acre lake with fishing, boating, hiking and a white sand beach for swimming making Lake Arrowhead an ideal place for a triathlon!
