The new event is sponsored by Team Triumph, a group of Lake Norman area women who participate in triathlons and other endurance sports.
All trails are primarily made up of rolling hills. The 5K course follows the Hawk Loop, while the longer races follow the Monbo Loop. The 12.6-mile route includes two loops on the Monbo trail.
Registration fees are $20, $25 and $30 for the 5K, 6.6- mile race and 12.6-mile race, respectively.
