In late July, for the third year running, Dirty Bird Events will be hosting one of the oldest off-road triathlons in East Tennessee, XTERRA Panther Creek. Newly added this year is another trail race in the XTERRA Tennessee Trail Running Series.
Nestled around a finger of Cherokee Lake, Panther Creek State Park presents a rural playground for mountain bikers and trail runners alike. Winding through the State Park, participants will encounter plenty of rocks, roots, and climbing to test their grit. XTERRA Panther Creek will take participants through the landscape and rugged hills of East Tennessee while exploring this magnificent park.
The half marathon and 4.2 mile trail races will start on Saturday at Panther Creek State Park with the half marathon at 8:00am and the 4.2 mile race starting at 8:05.
The triathlon on Sunday will be a mass start from Panther Creek Boat Launch area with the following portions in order:

Bike – 13.0 miles
Run – 4.5 miles
We look forward to seeing you at the starting line this July for XTERRA Panther Creek!
