This event is held in memory of our friend, Laura Genelin, who passed away in July of 2008 from colon cancer. Laura loved participating in triathlons. To keep her passion alive, we chose to hold one annually in her hometown of Eagle, Colorado.
Proceeds from the race will benefit the Vail Valley Charitable Fund, helping locals like Laura in medical crisis since 1996. To learn more about our nonprofit, visit www.vvcf.org.

Take I-70 to Eagle (exit 147). At the roundabout, head south on Eby Creek Road. Continue south through the roundabouts on Eby Creek Road, until you cross the Eagle River. At the next roundabout, take the first right out of the roundabout onto Grand Avenue/Highway 6. Go west on Grand Avenue/Highway 6 for 0.8 miles to the next roundabout. At this roundabout, take the third right onto Sylvan Lake Road. Continue on Sylvan Lake Road approximately 1 mile, and then take a right on Eagle Ranch Road. Follow Eagle Ranch Road to 4th of July Road, then turn right. 4th of July Road takes you uphill for another mile or so, leading to Arroyo Drive. Turn left. The trailhead is approximately 0.25 miles on the right.
Participants are asked to park at the after-party location in the Eagle Ranch Business District and ride to the start, as parking is extremely limited at the trailhead. If participants drive to the start, they will need to park on 4th of July Road as directed by VRD staff. Arroyo Drive will be closed to all vehicle traffic between 4th of July Road and Haystacker Drive from 4 to 8 p.m.
Start Loop – Due to construction and revegetation efforts at the start area, all adult racers will do a start loop on the bike path and Arroyo Dr. (only once) at the beginning of the race to allow riders the opportunity to spread out before the single track. Please note, there is no racing once your reach the top of the bike path climb and turn onto Arroyo Dr. until you are on the dirt. You MUST hold your position on the descent…There will be plenty of time for racing once on course. Anyone not complying with this rule will be DQ’ed and will not earn points for themself or their team. We will be watching. This is for your own safety, not because we are jerks. This will add .6 miles to all adult courses. If this is confusing, click here for a visual.
