The Rage Triathlon at Lake Mead National Recreation Area on April 27th will kick-off the race season in southern Nevada. This epic desert race was started in 2001.
Las Vegas has a subtropical hot desert climate, typical of the Mojave Desert in which it lies. The warm transitional seasons makes the Rage Tri the perfect Spring triathlon destination in the US. Triathlon clubs from across the region gather here to launch the multisport race season early. Rage has been recognized by Nevada triathletes as the “must-do” event to open their triathlon season.
The bike course is hilly, with the majority occurring on a section of Lakeshore Dr. that is located entirely within the national recreation area. The Olympic distance run will journey past the lush Boulder Beach campground, and turn onto the River Mountain Loop Trail. This course makes Rage one of the most scenic desert landscape triathlons in the region.
