Adventure Triathlon

Grantsburg, Wisconsin
May 10, 2014

After cycling 18 miles on sand, gravel and other challenging surfaces through Crex Meadows Wildlife Area, participants will take to the river:

When you arrive at Soderbeck Landing on the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway, you will transition into your self-propelled vessel such as a kayak, canoe or SUP. There will be transition zone volunteers to help you get your bike secure, vessel to the landing and in the water safely. This stretch of the race is approximately 4 miles. About half way down the river you will notice the beautiful Sandrock Cliffs.

After getting off the water at Highway 70, racers will run about eight miles on trails and roads, largely in Governor Knowles State Forest. Racers can compete solo or as a team. The event also includes a Youth Triathalon and a Family Fun Run this year.

Marine on St. Croix and Scandia, Minnesota
July 12, 2014

The Scandia-Marine on St. Croix Lions Club is sponsoring the inaugural St. Croix Fat Cat. The race starts with a 3.8 mile paddle from Log House Landing to William O’Brien State Park, and then continues with a 5.2 mile run on trails through the park and local roads to Scandia-Marine Lions Park. From there, participants will bike 11 miles on two loops around Scandia.

Registration options include solo, tandem, and team. Tandem participants will paddle together, and then each do the other legs. The slower time for each leg will be used for the overall time. The team event will be a relay of three racers, each doing one leg of the triathalon.
