Motus Nat Greene’s Revenge Triathlon and Duathlon

About

We will be working closely with the state to implement all necessary Covid measures to have a safe in-person event.  Modifications may include removal of post race activities, wave starts, and modified courses.  We cannot predict what Octoberwill look like in terms of the current pandemic, but we are committed to doing everything we can to host a live event.  Please make sure you are aware of our refund policy (found both on the registration page and under our rules page) prior to signing up.  We hope to see everyone in October!

In 2021 this race will have a morning On-Road Triathlon and Duathlon and an afternoon Trail Triathlon.  Both races will accumulate points towards the Trivium Multisport Series!  Not only will this make for more space for each race, it will also give people a chance to compete in both races for our Double Trouble prizes!

If you have not had the chance to race with us at Lake Brandt Marina, this is an amazing race venue.  Check out the different race descriptions below for more details.

At Nat Greene’s Revenge, we have 3 events you can sign up for:

Motus Off Road Triathlon: This is a sprint triathlon swimming 800 meters, then mountain biking the trails around Lake Brandt for 14.5 miles, and finishing with a tough 5K running on the Nat Greene Trail.  Lake Brandt is usually extremely calm water and a great open water swim.  The afternoon swim will allow for easy sighting. Athletes will bike on Greensboro’s iconic Wild Turkey and Owls Roost trails and then finish by running on Nat Greene’s Trail!

*if trails are closed on race day due to wet conditions, racers will have option to switch to road race or off-road aquathon

On Road Triathlon: A sprint triathlon swimming 800 meters, then cycling 12.5 miles on the rolling hills outside of Lake Brandt Marina, and finishing with 3.25 miles of road running in the adjoining neighborhood.  Water temps race morning should be wetsuit legal, but not freezing cold.

 Duathlon :  Duathletes will run 2 miles in the neighborhood adjacent to the marina, jump on their bikes for 12.5 road miles of cycling on the same bike course as our triathletes, and then they will run 3.25 miles on the road to finish the race!
