The Bass Lake Classic Triathlon has quickly established itself as one the best new triathlons in California. Well not new, as Bass Lake hosted the 1983 and 1984 USAT and USTS National Championships. In our third year back the Bass Lake Classic Triathlon continues the tradition with a superb challenging course, a beautiful venue in the Sierra foothills and the famous BBQ and Music on the Lake Awards Party.
The Bass Lake Classic Triathlon is centered at Bass Lake, a picturesque mountain lake only 15 minutes from the gates of Yosemite in the Sierra Foothills. Starting at the beach in front of our host hotel, The Pines Resort, triathletes are treated to a swim in the clear mountain waters of Bass Lake, followed by a challenging ride around Bass Lake and through the Sierra National Forest to finish with a run through quaint Bass Lake homes. Tired of courses choked by cars? Come to the Bass Lake Classic Triathlon and race on roads devoid of cars and in the crisp, clean air of the Sierra foothills.
The Bass Lake Classic Triathlon is more than just a race. The Pines Village is the site of the transition area and finish line. Enjoy a welcome Pasta Dinner during check in on Friday evening by Bass Lake Event Center. The post race food is epic. And don't miss the Music on the Lake and BBQ Awards Party on Saturday night!
Open your summer season at one of the most exciting and challenging venues in all of triathlon at the Bass Lake Classic Triathlon. And after the triathlon, enjoy all that Bass Lake has to offer. Bass Lake is the gateway to Yosemite Park. The area offers fishing, boating, swimming, water skiing, hiking, exploring and more, not to mention the local casinos, wine country and the list goes on.
