The Black Butte Triathlon Series is one of the best weekends for outdoor enthusiasts on all of the West Coast. Situated right on the border of Tehama and Glenn County, Black Butte Lake is one of the most scenic of lakes scattered around Northern California. Hosted annually on the second weekend of June, it provides a great race for long time tri-geeks or for first time-newbies to test their legs for the triathlon season.
The weekend is split up into two separate races between a Mountain Bike Triathlon (Saturday) and a Road Triathlon (Sunday). Both MTB and Road triathlons will have a Sprint and Olympic distance race. There will be a health and fitness expo to see the latest and greatest gadgets as well as local vendors from the surrounding area showcasing their all natural goods. Northern California boasts some of the widest array of produce from fruit to nuts, olives and olive oil to their up and coming wine country.
