Enka Triathlon

We believe there are few things better than living in or visiting Asheville, North Carolina but racing a triathlon here might be one of them.  The Enka Triathlon at Biltmore Lake celebrates it's eighth anniversary as the premier triathlon in the Asheville area and we invite you come join us and experience it for yourself.  

The race is centered around the beautiful Biltmore Lake community and features a 750-meter swim in the private lake, a 17.5 mile rolling bike leg in the farmland and rural areas of southern Buncombe County and a 3.1 mile run that takes you around the lake for a finish in front of friends, family and neighborhood residents.

We welcome everyone to come to Asheville to race and have fun.  Whether you are an individual or part of a team, everyone will feel welcome.
