The swim will take place in the scenic Cumberland River, maximizing down stream and paths of least resistance.  This section of the river has very little current so swim times will be fast.

The bike is set up to be fast.  Sprint participants will ride out Hwy 12 to the Davidson County line and back, with Olympic participants making 2 loops.

The run takes you out to the Cumberland River Bicentennial Trail where you'll be surrounded by the sounds of nature and color of wildflowers.  The Bicentennial Trail is flat and shaded, making it an ideal course for the run.

Weather Plan: If there is lightning or a significant amount of rain the race will be delayed. If the weather does not clear up in a reasonable amount of time the race will be canceled. There are no refunds for a canceled race due to weather.

If you're looking for a scenic venue, a fast but challenging course, and awesome post-race activities, look no further.  The Riverbluff Triathlon, one of the Southeast's premier multi-sport events, returned last year after a brief hiatus and did not disappoint with hundreds of participants, live music, delicious post-race food, interactive custom shirts and fantastic local support.  We also welcomed over 50 first time triathletes in 2016!!! 2017 promises to be even bigger and better!  

2017 will offer Sprint and Olympic distance options, Aquabike, and 2 and 3 person Relay Teams.
