The Black Butte Lake Triathlon Series is one of the best weekends for outdoor enthusiasts in Northern California. 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 in 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 into two separate races: a Mountain Bike Triathlon on Saturday and an Road Triathlon on Sunday. Each day hosts a Sprint and Olympic distance event. But the fun does not stop there! 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. Tehama County boasts a wide array of produce from fruit to nuts, olives and olive oil to an up and coming wine country.
