Ironman_Lake_Tahoe_Event_Schedule

This event schedule was created in 2013. We’re really looking forward to the 2014 Ironman Lake Tahoe, and will post more information about the week’s events in late-summer.

This coming September 22 marks the first of five years that the Ironman triathlon will take place in beautiful North Lake Tahoe. Along with the athletes, who will be scouting the course as they decompress and prepare for race day, will come their sponsors, friends and families. Although not everyone that attends the event is racing, thousands of visitors will be seeking out entertainment during their stay in Tahoe.

During the days leading up to the race there will be fun activities for everyone at Tahoe Mountain Sports, across from Kings Beach State Recreation Area, where the Ironman swim/bike transition will take place. What better way to stay entertained than enjoying free events like wetsuit and footwear demo days, presentations and group activities with seasoned Ironman veterans, and discounts on Ironman racing gear from industry-leading brands and official event sponsors like 2XU, GU, Headsweats, TYR, Yurbuds, Wigwam and more!

Bio of Team JaS (pronounced “jaz”)

My wife and I are a Team in Training AND in Racing. We have always been drawn to outdoor challenges, and in fact met during a rough-water swim in Santa Cruz! We each started competing in duathlons and triathlons in the early 90′s. Since then, we have traveled the world in search of epic destination races (over 30 Ironmans) and are extremely thrilled that the destination this time is our own home town! Over the past twenty years, we have been privileged to cross paths with some of the sport’s most provocative personalities and have been personally mentored/coached by triathlon legend The Grip himself, six-time Hawaii Ironman World Champion, Mark Allen. We’ve had some success as well, each qualifying for Kona in our very first Ironman and then returning for redemption another couple of times! Lately we’ve been focusing on the half-ironman distance and will have raced in the past four 70.3 World Championships in Las Vegas (including the one two weeks before Ironman Lake Tahoe). We wanted to share with you some things we’ve learned along the way as well as from our racing adventures outside of multi-sport.

 We hope to see you there!
