Cuyuna Off-Road Triathlon
July 9 @ 7:00 am - 1:00 pm
Our 2nd Annual Cuyuna Off-Road Triathlon is scheduled for Sunday, June 9, 2019 at the world-renowned Cuyuna Country State Recreation Area, in northern Minnesota. This off-road triathlon challenges participants to a 3-mile paddle, 8.5-mile mountain bike ride, and 2.5-mile trail run.
The bike ride will take place on beginnerand intermediate mountain bike trails. All participants are required to wear a helmet. Given the rough terrain in Cuyuna, we recommend that participants use mountain bikes (not cross/hybrid bikes). Pedal assist or e-bikes are not permitted.
Allowed vessels include canoes, solo canoes, kayaks, tandem kayaks, or stand up paddle boards. Canoes, kayaks, stand up paddle boards, paddles, and personal floatation devices (required) will not be provided to participants. They must either bring their own equipment or rent it.
All of the distances are approximate. We will post maps and more specific course information a few weeks prior to the event.
We are once again partnering with Pickle Events to manage our online registrations, timing, and some of the event logistics.
