August 8, 2020
*Update* As of May 28, 2020, the Half Distance event has been canceled. Sprint and Olympic are still set to take place as scheduled.
The 2020 Riverbluff Triathlon presented by Team Cleppe Realtors will be held Saturday, August 8, 2020 in Ashland City, just 20 miles west of downtown Nashville. The 2020 race marks the 5th year of the Riverbluff Triathlon's return to the calendar as well as the return of the Half distance race featuring a 1.2 mile swim in Cheatham Lake, a 56 mile bike through scenic Cheatham County, and a 13.1 mile flat and shaded run along the Cumberland River Bicentennial Trail. While the Half distance race might be new and flashy, the extremely popular Sprint and Olympic races will still be taking place, thus creating options for all levels of athletes in one event. The Riverbluff Triathlon has been recognized as the "Best Triathlon" in Middle Tennessee as voted on by readers of Nashville Fit Magazine and is one of the fastest growing triathlons in the Southeast.
The 2020 race will also be host to the USA Triathlon MidEast Regional Sprint Championships where the top 45% or top 5 finishers in an age group (whichever is greater) in the Sprint race will qualify for the 2021 Sprint Distance Age Group National Championships.
