Deep Creek Lake and the pristine, rugged Allegheny Mountains of western Maryland, provide a venue of unmatched beauty and stunning scenery, and features three courses that will certainly bring out the true “Savage” in all who come to conquer, from the competitive Ironman racer to the leisurely back-of-the-pack or novice participant. Whether swimming in crystal clear Deep Creek Lake, riding the smooth, remote, and challenging roads of Garrett County, or running on Deep Creek State Park trails and the surrounding lakeside roads, the SavageMan Triathlon Festival races will challenge and awe every participant. If such a triathlon event appeals to you then you will love the SavageMan Triathlon Festival.
The SavageMan 20.0 Triathlon is a Sprint distance triathlon consisting of a 0.45 mile swim, 15.5 mile bike, and 3.1 mile run. The SavageMan 20.0 provides athletes a shorter, flatter triathlon alternative to the SavageMan 70.0 or 30.0, while still offering all the beauty of Deep Creek Lake and Garrett County. The SavageMan 20.0 Triathlon bike course does not feature any major climbs and does NOT go through Westernport, so there is no Westernport Wall for the SavageMan 20.0 & 30.0 Triathlon athletes.
