The Long Course is Olympic length, and consists of a 1½ kilometer swim in Detroit Lake, a 40-kilometer bike ride through the beautiful (and hilly!) Minnesota Lakes Country, and a 10-kilometer run out to Dunton Locks Park and back via the scenic Pelican River trail.
The Sprint Course will include a 500 meter swim, a 20k bike ride and a 5k run on parts of the same course as the Olympic course. This is a great introductory course for those new to the sport or not ready for the more challenging race.
The Stand Up Paddle Board (SUP) and Kayak divisions are back again in 2017. These divisions consist of a 2 mile paddle combined with either the Olympic or Sprint bike and run. AND, you can do these as a relay as well.
The course officially closes at 11:30am on Race Day. After the course closes, participants may continue but it will be at their own risk.
After the race, stick around for family activities, the city beach, and downtown fun. A Saturday noon lunch is free to all racers and can be purchased by non-racers.
