Race details

Join us for the annual Serpents Shadow 5k, Youth Duathlon, “Paddle” Triathlon, and Duathlon in the heart of Wyoming County. The triathlon will consist of a paddle-bike-run and will start in historic Silver Lake, continuing through Wyoming County for the bike and run. Participants will take in the sights of the rural landscapes while offering a course that challenges the athlete.


Races start at 10:00 AM.

Athletes are expected to be able to complete the sprint distance races before the 1:30 PM cutoff. Under no circumstances will a competitor in either race be allowed to start a run loop after 12:30 PM with a timing chip. If participants desire to continue on the course after their timing chip has been pulled, they do so at their own risk with the understanding that there will be no race support on the course, and that transition zone security will end at this time. Equipment left in transition after this time is done so at the risk of each competitor. We reserve the right to pull you from any leg if we anticipate your continuation in the event may result in harm to yourself or your fellow competitors.
