(KSL News) Hundreds took the plunge in Pineview Reservoir this morning to compete in the Ogden off-road triathlon. But this isn't just any off road track -- it's a former Olympic venue.

Community leaders in Weber County came up with the race as a way to continue northern Utah's Olympic Legacy. The triathlon course climbs the Snowbasin Ski resort, which hosted Olympic events like the downhill in 2002.

Ogden community planners say they have a lot of activities in the works for drawing attention and tourism to the area, especially the adventurous types.

The race is an X-Terra event, drawing people from 14 states.

In all, athletes swam 1000 meters, biked 12 miles and ran four miles --- mostly uphill.
