3rd Annual Nolichucky Triple Threat

August 26, 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm

The 3rd Annual Nolichucky Triple Threat Obstacle Course race will take place on Saturday, August 26.  The Triple Threat, designed to challenge the most enthusiastic competitor, is the only event of its kind that begins on the churning whitewaters of the Nolichucky River and finishes with a trail run just steps from the acclaimed Appalachian Trail.
 
The Nolichucky Triple Threat will begin at USA Raft, located at 2 Jones Branch Road, Erwin, where this year,  participants can chose to PADDLE OR PEDDLE their way to the obstacle course starting line and timed portion of the event.  Participants can either tame the whitewaters of the Nolichucky River as they paddle down a 1.5 mile section in the watercraft of their choice including a raft, kayak or bellyak or they can opt to peddle their way up and down hills both on and off road. Whether peddling or paddling, participants are sure to have an adventure.
 
After the paddle or peddle portion of the event, participants will emerge on a sandy beach shore where the timing portion of the event will begin.
Once participants cross the starting line, they will immediately enter the obstacle challenge course in which they will test their strength and agility on eighteen adventurous obstacles including a sand crawl under barbed wire, water walk through, balance beam, monkey bars, tire drag and much more.
 
Upon completion of the obstacle course, Triple Threat participants will then begin the third segment of the event – the 5K race back to USA Raft.  Racers will run on Temple Hill Road to River Road where they will race alongside the Nolichucky River for a section of the race.  Then for the last steps of the race, participants will battle trail terrain where they will complete the run back to their final obstacle before crossing the finish line.
 
The first 25 registered participants will receive a 2017 “I Am Training Nolichucky Style” t-shirt.
