4th Annual Trailathlon

November 4th, 2017

Join the Haw River Trail and the community of Saxapahaw for the 4th Annual Trailathlon, a Haw River Trail fundraiser. This multi-sport adventure brings together families and athletes of all abilities and skill levels to enjoy the natural recreation opportunities of the Haw River corridor. The race starts with a two-mile round trip paddle on Saxapahaw Lake, followed by a seven-mile rolling countryside bike ride, and finishes with a 5K trail run on a new section of trail. The race is untimed and is intended to draw appreciation for the Haw River Trail, the Haw River, and surrounding communities.

All proceeds support the Haw River Trail’s new Saxapahaw Island Park.
