1.2 mile Swim, 56 mile Bike, 13.1 mile Run
The picturesque Lake Logan Conference Center is the home of one of the most beautiful venues in all of multi-sport racing. Here you will find wet suit legal swims in August, challenging and scenic bike courses, and runs on a tree canopied course along a rolling river. You will probably also see bald eagles flying overhead during your stay. The Lake Logan Half takes place on Saturday, August 7 and we invite you to join us as we celebrate 15 years of multi sport racing at Lake Logan.

Saturday, August 7, 5:00-6:30 AM – Lake Logan Episcopal Center – Lake Logan Half Only
Swim – The swim will start at the dock and follow a clock-wise, rectangular course finishing at a floating dock located just past the bridge. Athletes will then run on grass to T1.
Bike – Athletes will run their bike out of transition to Lake Logan Road before mounting. The course will take them east to Canton, through Clyde and into the Ironduff and Crabtree sections of Haywood County before returning through Clyde and Bethel. The bike course has approximately 5,436 feet of ascent over the 56 miles.
Run – The run course is a two-loop, out and back course on Lake Logan Road west of Lake Logan. Once returning to the LLEC, runners will complete a lap in the grass field behind the transition area before proceeding back to the course for the second lap or to the finish line. There is an elevation gain on the outward half of the course of 199′ or 398′ for the entire half marathon.
Cut-Off Time – All participants must complete the race in under 8 hours. The swim must be completed in no more than 1 hour – 30 minutes from the time the participant started. The bike must be completed in no more than 5 hours from the time the participant started. Participants must finish the entire race under 8 hours from the start of the event. Race officials reserve the right to pull a participant off the course if it appears as though that participant will not be able to meet the above time requirements.
Everyone who completes the Lake Logan Half will receive a pretty cool medal at the finish line.
We recognize that most triathletes have a lot of race shirts so we are making this year’s shirt an a la carte item for purchase and including a swag item. The whole package is priced at $20 and may be purchased during online registration.
