COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — USA Triathlon's 2021 National Championship season resumes this weekend with the 2021 USA Triathlon Long Course National Championships, held at Toughman New York in Stony Point, New York.
Formerly referred to as the Multisport National Championships Festival, the new Long Course National Championships features Long Course Triathlon, Duathlon and Aquabike as well as Standard-Distance Aquabike over two days of racing Sept. 25-26.

Race participants will swim in the calm, clear Lake Welch, with the bike course taking athletes on moderately-hilly tour of Harriman State Park. The run course finishes with a challenging hill.
