Seven Lakes 4th Annual Triathlon

The fourth annual Seven Lakes Triathlon was held Saturday June 7, at the Amery Pavilion. Athletes were greeted with high winds, heavy rains, and intermittent thunder and lightning. 29 brave souls (10 teams of 2, and 9 individuals) completed what turned into a duathlon (16 mile bike, 5k trail run).

The race was scheduled to go off at 9:00AM, however due to the weather, it went off at 9:40AM. When the first bikers approached South Twin Beach for the canoe/kayak portion of the event, they were routed straight to the run, due to the threat of lightning on the lake. All participants remained upbeat and happy despite dealing with the tough weather conditions. This was the first year that it hasn’t been sunny and clear out.

 

We’d like to thank all the volunteers who sacrificed their time and energy to help in the poor weather conditions, and all the runners/bikers for braving the weather. Hoping 2015 is a bigger and better year!
