The Bass Lake Yosemite Triathlon has established itself as one of the "Go To" triathlons in California. Just minutes from Yosemite National Park, the Bass Lake Yosemite Triathlon takes place in one of the most spectacularly beautiful areas in the United States.
Triathlon has a long history at Bass Lake. At the dawn of triathlon, the 1983 and 1984 USAT and USTS National Championships were held here. The triathlon tradition continues at Bass Lake with a beautiful and challenging course in the foothills of the Sierras, a post race BBQ and Awards Party second to none and everything that Bass Lake and Yosemite has to offer.
Bass Lake and its neighboring community, Oakhurst, are only a short drive from the gates of Yosemite National Park. The area provides a perfect place to stay while exploring the wonders of Yosemite National Park. Glacier Point, Yosemite Valley, Half Dome, Bridal Veil Falls and all the hiking and sightseeing the Park has to offer are only minutes away.
