Garrett County, Maryland, Set to Host SavageMan Triathlon

Aug 08, 2013

The SavageMan Triathlon Festival, billed as “the world’s most beautiful and most savage triathlon series,” will come to Garrett County, Maryland, Sept 14-15.

The event is a fundraiser to fight melanoma. Fundraising proceeds from "Win-The-Fight" Events benefit the Joanna M. Nicolay Melanoma Foundation, the "voice of melanoma prevention, detection, care and cure." Melanoma is the most serious and lethal form of skin cancer accounting for 79% of all skin cancer deaths. This savage cancer is a potential threat to all outdoor sports enthusiasts.

Deep Creek Lake and the pristine, rugged Allegheny Mountains of western Maryland, provide a venue of unmatched beauty and stunning scenery, and feature two courses that will certainly bring out the true "Savage" in all who come to conquer, from the competitive Ironman racer to the leisurely back-of-the-pack or novice participant. Whether swimming in the crystal clear Deep Creek Lake, riding the smooth, remote, and challenging roads of Garrett County, or running on Deep Creek State Park trails and the surrounding lakeside roads, the SavageMan Triathlon Festival races will challenge and awe every participant.

The 2013 SavageMan Triathlon Festival will include Triathlon (swim-bike-run), Aqua-Bike (swim-bike), and Duathlon (run-bike-run) divisions over both the 30.0 and 70.0 courses.
