Danskin Triathlon

October 07, 2012 · La Quinta, CA

Distance: 1.2 mile swim, 12 mile bike, 3 mile run

Lake Cahuilla Park is nestled at the base of the Santa Rosa Mountains, about 30 miles southeast of famous Palm Springs.  Lake Cahuilla’s calm waters provide a pleasant place for the ½ mile Swim with average October water temperatures in the 70’s.  The triathlon course, approximately 50 feet below sea level, is ideal for first timers with cool mornings and mid-day temperatures in the 80’s.  The BIKE route is a flat loop along rural low traffic roads and the RUN which is partly off-road on sand and dirt, circles the Lake to the Finish on the beach.
