Escape to Blue Ridge, one of the leading providers of North Georgia cabin rentals, announced it will be the title sponsor of the Tri The Mountains Triathlon taking place July 24, 2011 in the North Georgia Mountains.

Now in its second year, this year's event will be called the “Escape to Blue Ridge Tri The Mountains Triathlon.” It's estimated that 500-600 athletes will participate, with scores of additional family and friends there to cheer them on.

The race promises to be an incredibly scenic journey through the mountains. The 600-yard swim will take place in the crystal clear waters of Lake Blue Ridge. The bike is an 18 mile out and back crossing over the lake with mountains towering in the background. The 5K run will leave the Lake Blue Ridge Marina and head towards town on Old Hwy 76, where participants will be cheered on as they enter the historic town of Blue Ridge. The awards ceremony and after party will take place in the park in the center of town, promising a day to remember for everyone involved.

“We at Escape to Blue Ridge are passionate about the North Georgia Mountains and believe it's simply one of the most beautiful and special places on Earth,” said Escape to Blue Ridge co-founder Pamela Miracle. “Sponsoring the Escape to Blue Ridge Tri the Mountains Triathlon is our way of sharing that passion with others and welcoming new people to the area who may not have experienced its power and beauty yet.”
