Steve Braun Memorial Triathlon, Sponsored by the Friends of Moran on Sunday, Sept. 4. Registration is at 7:30 a.m. A pre race meeting is at 8:30 a.m. The race starts at 9 am promptly. There are three components to the triathlon:

Swim: A half mile swim in beautiful Cascade Lake. The start area is 50 yards north of fishing dock. Water temp is typically 60 degrees. Wetsuits are permissible and favored by many.

Bike: A 15 mile bike ride along a scenic and very rural county chip sealed road. From the lake you will head south and out towards Doe Bay. You will encounter hills and slopes of varying degrees ( up to 10 percent grade to and from Olga) and a few hairpin corners. We take extra precaution by placing road safety signs, volunteers and advising local traffic of the event. We strongly suggest that cyclists ride single file except to pass due to the narrow shoulders.

Run: A beautiful trail run 3.5 miles around Cascade Lake. Trail is primitive, not gravel, with some short hills and slopes. Hazards include tree roots and uneven footing. It is a trail and sturdy shoes are recommended. Register on line at www.friendsofmoran.org/sbmt.
