11th Annual Bass Lake Yosemite Triathlon Coming Soon

MOUNTAIN COMMUNITIESVisit Yosemite | Madera County has once again partnered with professional triathlon producer Jonathan Grinder of Tucson Racing to present the 11th Annual Bass Lake Yosemite Triathlon on June 4, 2022, in the Pines Village at Bass Lake.

Image of the Visit Yosemite - Madera County logo. The race will begin at 7 a.m. and athletes should begin arriving around 5:30 a.m. The race should end by 1 p.m., with everything torn down by 3 p.m.

There will be no 5K race this year. Race coordinators want to make sure that all the Bass Lake homeowners and their tenants are again informed of the course routes, times, and end times. You are all an important part of Bass Lake and we hope many of you will be there either to participate in the race, volunteer, or as a spectator to cheer on the athletes!

The Bass Lake Lions Club will again treat us to a delicious waffle breakfast to raise money for local charities. Everyone is invited to grab a bite, enjoy the music and cheer on the athletes at the finish line.

The Bass Lake Yosemite Triathlon has a website with information and registration options at www.BassLakeTri.com. They are also on Facebook at www.Facebook.com/basslaketri, if you’d like to “like” them and keep up on current happenings.
