This is one of the toughest triathlons that includes whitewater kayaking. The Green River Gorge in NC is a rite of passage for extreme kayakers and is the first leg of the Tri. It includes the massive Gorilla Falls rapid and many more. The mountain bike trail and the run are on the same grueling 8 mile loop out of and back into the Green River Gorge.

Here's a short version of last year's race. (As the proud Papa I'm pulling for a repeat but those are extremely hard to accomplish. We'll keep you posted.)

We're quite proud, but...

Joe Scarborough improved his time from last year by 13 minutes and finished second. The top five finishers broke the old course record. Congrats to Jack Ditty, who won two years ago and took second last year and set the new course record this year.
