Due to ongoing requests we are changing this years Tri-athlon to a Du-athlon. This will eliminate the swim portion which many children did not want to do and limited them from enterinng a multi-sport competition. I hope, in the near future, to add a triathlon portion also. Due to this change we will be able to do a mass start. This will eliminate a lot of the wait time between races!
A duathlon is a Run-Bike-Run race.
A Stay & Play Family Weekend!
Only 1 hour from Minneapolis/St. Paul.
What should I wear? Wear what your can bike and run in. Changing clothes will take too long in the transition. Helmets MUST be worn at all times while on the bike. Leaving the bike transition without a helmet will be an automatic disqualification. We will not allow the use of aero bars or drafting.
Please do not eat too much prior to the race. It is unnecessary to do any carb loading since this is a short race. The more food in your gut the harder it will be to finish.
There will be a racer meeting at 8:30 am. We will go over the course and answer questions. Any misconduct will result in expulsion. Parents/Guardians will have to sign a waiver, with ID, prior receiving the racers bib number.
Event Cost: $35 per racer. Each racer will get a t-shirt and race goodies and finisher medal. Racer must register 30 days prior to the race to insure a t-shirt.
No refunds due to weather cancellation. 2 hour wait time for inclement weather.

Sponsor a Triathlete below
It all started when my daughters were 7 and 9. They entered their first kids triathlon in Chisago City, Mn. From that point things changed. This event seemed to empower my daughters and they continued to race for years to come. Madison, my youngest, is still racing today in the USAT Youth Elite. It was her, and mine, dream of one day bringing an event to the area I grew up in. In 2017 this became an reality. We hope it will empower young kids (athletic or not) to be active and motivated. Our goal is to bring community businesses and individuals together to help make this BIG and FUN with lots of people cheering on the kids. We also want to give novise adults to participate in a non-stressful multi-sport event. Whether they are athletic or not. Many businesses in Polk County have already given their commitment to sponsor this event and help make this a reality for the second year. We got this up and running through community involvement, money, product and support. If you are a business and would like to promote this event please contact us. There are many opportunities but here are a few:
2'x4" ($150) and 2'x8' ($225) banners will be custom made for your business and proudly displayed on the finish line fence for everybody to see! You can keep your professionally made banner after the race and use it next year at a discount! Your business will also be promoted on Facebook multiple times, with over 1000 local followers (on my personal and professional page) thanking your support and promoting your services. You will get your money's worth in advertising. Other ways individuals can help is by adopting a triathlete for $35, so every child can participate. Donating a bike to use for the day is also welcome!
Want to promote your business further? We are looking for businesses to donate customized water bottles, customized triathlon cowbells, T-shirts and customized cinch bags for the packet pickup. Their are many ways to help.
Madison and I would like to send out a big THANKS to all the business and individuals who sponsored this event last year! It will get bigger and better every year to come!
Please support these sponsors as they support our community!
