Barron Lake Triathlon
• Don't miss this fantastic event to raise money for local triathlete Steve Smith's foundation, Racing for Steve-O!
• There is still time to sign up for this fantastic event!
For the sake of our Volunteers
We have instilled a time cut off for the Olympic course. Olympic bikers need to be past Anderson and Pokagon (mile 7 approximately) by 10:45am. After that time volunteers at that corner will direct bikers to turn around and head back. Olympic racers must be on run by 11am to continue. Course closes at noon. If you feel you can not complete the Olympic distance triathlon in under 3.5 - 4 hours, please consider competing in the Sprint Distance.
New for 2015!
