Location: 179 Park Office Road, Campbellsville, KY 42718

10k and 1/2 Marathon trail runs – August 28th, 2021

Triathlon, Duathlon, Kayak Triathlon – August 29th, 2021

Motus comes to Green River Lake State Park.  Come see one of Kentucky’s best kept secrets at this beautiful state parks.  The swim will be in the clean, crisp waters of Green River Lake.  The mountain bike course will be on more of an “old school” feel trail and features plenty of climbing, down hills, and obstacles to keep things interesting.  The run will be a mix of cross-country style running and trail running.  Choose your Motus:

Short Shred Triathlon

Swim or Kayak/SUP:  1000 meter swim in Green River Lake.   Kayakers/SUP will be competing in separate division

Mountain Bike:  Approximately 14.25 miles.  Athletes will leave transition and climb a paved road to the trail head and make 2 laps.  An aid station will be set up at the trail head that athletes can place their own bottles on a table and grab their bottles whenever they pass it.

Run:  Athletes will run to the trail head by the swim start and take that trail following the duathlon run course until it comes out of the woods.  They will then follow a short stretch of road to the next trail head and run about 2 miles on multi-use trail.  At the end of the trail, they will run in the grass back to the trail they started on.  Run is about 5.25 miles.

This will earn you points at the Aurum Level as explained on the Motus Off Road Points Series page.

Full Send Triathlon

Swim or Kayak/SUP: 2000 meter swim. 2 loops.  Kayakers/SUP will be competing in separate division.

Mountain bike:  Approximately 27 miles. Ride the road to trail head and make 4 loops.  Athletes can place water bottles on the table at the trail head before the race for the self-service aid station.  This map is for the Short Shred, but just double the trail portion of the bike before heading back to transition.  There is plenty of opportunity to pass on this course without slowing down much.

Run:  Athletes will run the same course as the Short Shred, but it will be 2 loops (10.5 miles).  Aid stations will be at transition, the trail head, at the intersection of the north trail and road.

This will earn you points at the Platinum level as explained on the Motus Off Road Race Series page.


The Duathletes will do a 1.75 mile trail run instead of swimming.  The rest of the race will be the same as the short shred triathlon.

This will earn you points at the Platinum level as explained on the Motus Off Road Points Series page.

Trail Run

The trail run will be on the MTB course for the following day.  The 10K trail runners will do one loop and the 1/2 Marathoners will do 2 loops.  Aid station will be roughly half way through the loop and the start/end of each loop.

This will earn you points at the Platinum level as explained on the Motus Off Road Points Series page.
