July 23, 2018. Franconia, New Hampshire. What’s more beautiful than a triathlon in the White Mountains? Starting at Franconia Notch State Park, after a swim in crystal clear water, the bike and run courses weave and wind through the pristine terrain, affording athletes some of the best views in the Whites! Landmarks such as the Cannon Mountain Tramway and Old Man of the Mountain View Center are points of interest along your route. The run finishes at the base of Cannon Mountain, at the main Peabody Lodge and lift area for a post-race party and celebration.
