Challenge Rancho Cordova
Welcome to your California Half distance Challenge Rancho Cordova Triathlon that is scheduled for October 5, 2014.
The City of Rancho Cordova is conveniently located just twelve miles east of Sacramento, the capital of California, and provides a variety of attractions. The beautiful American River lines Rancho Cordova’s northern border and offers many activities both on and off the water. Rancho Cordova is just minutes away from the historic Gold Country and the spectacular Sierra Foothill Wine Country. Rancho Cordova has a rich history offering a variety of historic locations in the area along with great locations to hold sporting and corporate events.
Swim Course (Nimbus Flat State Park):
Your 1.2 mile swim will start in deep water and traverse a counter clockwise course in beautiful, calm fresh water from the Sierra Nevada Mountains. October water temperatures range from 61-65 degrees.
There is no doubt your swim will occur in one of the Cleanest Bodies of Water for any triathlon in California. Nimbus Dam is fed by the American River and played an important role in the area’s history as gold was first discovered along its banks in 1848 igniting the California Gold Rush. The American River begins with headwaters high in the Sierra Nevada’s.
As it flows toward the ocean, the American River passes through the Nimbus Fish Hatchery (Salmon, Steelhead and Trout) through Rancho Cordova to the Sacramento River and, ultimately, into San Francisco Bay. Today the riches of the American River are its ability to both excite and relax those who enjoy the waterway. Every year, thousands of visitors come to enjoy white water rafting, kayaking, and stroll along the scenic views from the trails that wind along the river.
Your 56 mile one loop point to point bike course which rolls through beautiful farm lands, vineyards, wooded hills, and historic Mather Field Air Force base offers the challenge of 1200 ft. in overall elevation gain.
Run Course (Downtown Rancho Cordova):
Your 2 loop run course is a tour of the beautiful city of Rancho Cordova including its wooded corporate business parks, Village Green Park, its open bike trails, and its new downtown area. The run course is spectator friendly and we expect that the incredible Rancho Cordova community will be out in full force to embrace you from start to finish.
