Trailathlon is held each year in the fall. All proceeds support the Haw River Trail’s new Saxapahaw Island Park.

Trailathlon is a multi-sport adventure that brings together families and athletes of all abilities and skill levels to enjoy the natural recreation opportunities of the Haw River corridor. The race starts with a two-mile round trip paddle on Saxapahaw Lake, followed by a six-mile rolling countryside bike ride, and finishes with a 5K trail run on a new section of trail. The race is untimed and is intended to draw appreciation for the Haw River Trail, the Haw River, and surrounding communities. But don’t let that deter you from racing your friends and family to the finish line.

The 2019 Trailathlon was held on October 26, 2019. Details for the 2020 Trailathlon will be available in spring 2020.
