... on the northern end of Owasco Lake. Join us as we renew Auburn's annual tradition of fun, competition, and celebration.
The Great Race is the nation's largest team only run, bike and paddle triathlon. Hundreds of 2, 3, or 4 person teams begin with a runner
(5k or 10k) who hands off to a biker (10 or 20 miles) who then hand off to their kayaker or 2 canoeists. Young or old, serious racers or beginners (check out the news story below), compete for glory or the pursuit of fun and fitness.
After the race, the annual post-race celebration begins. Racers and spectators alike are in for the fun, food, and refreshments.
