Tri for the Sun Triathlon

Date: June 10, 2023

Time: 7:00am

Location: Carbondale Pool / Sunlight Mtn Resort

Join us for the third annual Tri for the Sun! This Triathlon is put on by the Town of Carbondale Parks and Rec Department and Sunlight Mountain Resort.  We couldn’t be more excited to see competitors swim, bike, and trail running through our beautiful Valley! Pick your poison with a gravel or a road bike for the stunning ride over dry park road. Racers had success with both styles of bike last year so ride what’s right for you. The 5k running portion is all on rugged trail so make sure you get some hilly dirt work in before race day.


The Tri for the Sun is a unique sprint triathlon that will start at the John M. Fleet Carbondale Pool and end at Sunlight Mountain Resort!  This is a non-sanctioned triathlon.

Starting at the Carbondale Pool, swim a half mile (32 lengths/16 laps), transition in Sopris Park to road/gravel bike and ride 16 miles to Sunlight (2,700ft vertical gain), and then transition at Sunlight Mountain Resort to a 5k trail run up the mountain (600ft vertical gain).

This event will be hand-timed, and all participants will need to abide by bicycle and pedestrian traffic laws on the road sections.

The route for bikers will include Main Street in Carbondale, traveling through the round-about, continuing up Thompson Creek Road (CR108), turning right onto Dry Park Road, and culminating up 4 Mile Road to Sunlight Resort. Helmets are required at all times during the biking portion.

The trail run will lead you from the resort into the stunning trail system of Babbish Gulch. You will run on 30% double track and 70% single track. There is no pavement in the run.
