THE EVENT TO REMIND YOU WHY YOU LOVE TRIATHLON

Making its debut in 2018, The Loop Pursuit is the triathlon experience you’ve been longing for. We’re focusing on what you love about the sport — camaraderie, challenge, attaining a personal best — and leaving behind those things you don’t.

Brought to you by Verona’s own Rocket Bicycle Studio, you can be assured that this mid-distance length endurance event is designed and managed with you in mind, your safety and the unique assets our community has to offer. 

The Loop Pursuit Triathlon gives participants a "right distance" race opportunity to use for long course triathlon training and a challenge for those wanting a bit more than a sprint distance triathlon.
