|Yesterday is a day we look forward to all year — The Sugarbush Triathlon. The event tests your mettle with four events: a five mile road run, a six mile river paddle, an eight mile road bike and an arduous up-and-down xc ski on the alpine trails at Sugarbush. Each of the events are solid challenges — and when you combine them back-to-back it makes for an event tough enough to, “rob you of your will to live.” (Luethi)
