After missing 2020, RDE ventures east to the beautiful town of Dandridge and Douglas Lake for the Lakeside of the Smokies triathlon. 2021 will feature a new venue, with the race site moving "across the bridge" to The Point Resort.  This has been the ideal venue since the inception of Lakeside of the Smokies, but was not possible until the BRIDGE renovation was completed.   

The race distances are the same, with LOTS again offering the 750 meter Swim/16 mile Bike/3 mile Run sprint option, in addition to the Olympic distance (1.5k S/40K B/10kR) option. The Olympic distance race features 2 lap counter clockwise triangular open water swim , followed by a rolling loop bike course, capped off by a challenging run through town and across the famous Dandridge levy (aid stations ~every mile). The sprint option is a condensed version of the Olympic course--one lap swim, a "short cut" version of the Olympic bike and  a flatter run course. Performance technical shirts, NEXT LEVEL tank option for women, race logo DeFeet socks, unique “wooden paddle" awards, and post-race food & BEER highlight the Jefferson Co. event. Expected participation--200

With the race moving from May to June, the water temp is expected to be 78-80 degrees F.  Wetsuit legality will be determined on race morning according to USAT guidelines.

Lakeside of the Smokies is a USAT sanctioned event.  All participants must have a current USAT number or pay a one day license fee ($15).  The one day fee, if needed, is automatically added during the online registration process.  Participants must also present a valid form of ID at packet pickup or when checking in on race morning.
