White Deer Triathlon (Duathlon in 2021)
May 15 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
The White Deer Triathlon Committee is moving forward with a 2021 event. The safety of our race participants and volunteers is top of mind, therefore, all planning is being done with COVID-19 safety guidelines in place. This year we are changing to a duathlon format. The reason for this is that we are required to obtain an event permit from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources to use the boat landing and any part of the bike trail/forest trail properties. They currently permit a maximum of 50 people, which would include participants and volunteers. With the time needed to plan the event, we are not confident we will be able to obtain one in a timely fashion, if at all, for our race capping, this year, at 200 participants.
The White Deer Duathlon consists of a 6.5-kilometer run, 22-kilometer bike and 2-kilometer run on Boulder Junction’s paved and scenic country roads. The start line, transition and finish line will all be staged at the Boulder Junction Community Center. Registration is open to individuals and two-person relay teams. The cost to participate is $85 for an individual or $170 for a two-person relay team. All racers will receive short sleeved performance T-shirt, participation medal, goodie bags and bagged lunch.
