Triathlon combines best of mountain sports

Written by 

The ultimate triathlon for outdoors adventure lovers — with the triple combo of paddling, trail running and mountain biking — will come to the trails of Tsali this weekend, Aug. 28 and 29.

The Tsali Challenge will be held at the Tsali Recreation Area outside of Bryson City.

The course kicks off with a 3-mile paddle on Fontana Lake, a 5-mile trail run and a 12-mile mountain-bike ride. Race solo on Saturday, or with a team on Sunday.

Racers can use whatever boat they please, but times will be calculated based on a formula that compensates for faster boats versus slower boats, thus leveling the playing field.

Harper, with her million-dollar smile and swagger, immediately made me feel at home.
