CAPEX Triathlon At Carlyle Lake

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Carlyle Lake in partnership with MSE Racing and the City of Carlyle will host the CAPEX Triathlon Sunday, 15 September 2019. The triathlon will begin in the Dam West Day Use Area at 6:30 a.m. and will consist of three groups, sprint, Olympic, and half ironman, competing in a timed swim, bike, and run course. The swim portion will take place on the south side of the Dam West beach. The bike course will start at the Main Dam and will travel North on Clinton and Bond County roads. The route of the run course will take participants through the West Spillway, General Dean Recreation Area, East Spillway, across Saddle Dam II, and the Main Dam. While visiting Carlyle Lake during the triathlon, visitors are encouraged to take extra caution while driving in the areas of the triathlon course.

Due to the number of participants and public safety, Lake Road, located adjacent to the Dam West Recreation Area, will be temporarily closed at 8:00 p.m. on Saturday, 14 September until 8:00 p.m. on Sunday, 15 September 2019 to accommodate event setup. The closure will be from the West Spillway entrance to the entrance of Dam West Boat Ramp.
