The Echo Triathlon, July 11
Traditionally, entries for the Echo Triathlon sell out early as it has become one of Utah's largest events. The triathlon includes a swim in the Echo reservoir, a scenic ride through Echo Canyon, followed by a run on the Historic Rail Trail. It is the perfect event for both beginners and seasoned triathletes. Not interested in the active portion of the event? That's okay - the fun doesn't stop once the race is over. Head to downtown Coalville for some hometown cooking and the annual antique car "cruise-in."
