Deep Creek Lake and the SavageMan Triathlon must be experienced…
Deep Creek Lake and the pristine, rugged Allegheny Mountains of western Maryland, provide a venue of unmatched beauty and stunning scenery. Swim in crystal clear Deep Creek Lake. Ride the smooth, remote, and challenging roads of Garrett County. Run the Deep Creek State Park trails and surrounding lakeside roads. The SavageMan Triathlon Festival races will challenge and awe every participant. If such a triathlon appeals to you then you will love the SavageMan Triathlon Festival. For 2019 we have reverted to the Classic SavageMan courses and format, with a twist.
Friday 5PM – SavageMan Swim-Run #GoKinetic Prologue – 250m/1mi/250m/1mi/250m/1mi. This spectator friendly event takes place entirely within 1/2 mile of the beach. Watch your favorite athlete race by 3 times as they vie for top tier placing.
Saturday 9AM – SavageMan 30 Olympic- Classic, challenging course with Bumblebee, Foy and a 2 loop run.
Saturday 9:30AM – SavageMan 20 Sprint- Classic course with a flat, out and back bike.
Sunday 8:30AM – SavageMan 70 Long Course – Classic course with Westernport, Big Savage Mtn, Killer Miller and the Fire Tower Trail (2 loops).
Westernport Wall – This year we are once again offering FREE bus rides to the westernport wall. The buses will leave from the upper road above the transition area at 8:30am (You will not be able to see the start of the swim but it is worth it to see all the action on the Westernport Wall) The buses will return promptly after athletes clear the wall.
