SQUARE LAKE RACE REPORT - I was looking forward to racing at Square Lake all year. It’s the only race I have been able to do all three seasons I’ve competed and it’s fun to see the improvement. Square Lake was also my first amateur overall win so it will always be a special race for me.
My first year racing at Square Lake was tough; the course is awesome but challenging. For T1 you have to run up a long set of wooden steps to get to the transition area. Then the bike and run course both have some pretty big climbs that are sure to make your legs burn.
Having just returned from Edmonton three days prior, I slept in a little more than usual and got to the race as the sun was coming up. It was a chilly morning but the air was warming up nicely. I got my bike setup in transition and headed out for a short bike and run warm-up. With about ten minutes to go I got in my wetsuit and jumped in the lake for a brief swim warm-up....

Rugged beauty takes some effort to see.
The few brave souls who endured the challenging conditions of the inaugural Wildlife Loop Triathlon, and incidentally the first half-ironman in South Dakota, received such a reward, along with the genuine sense of satisfaction that comes from completing what we believe is South Dakota’s most arduous race venue.
Eighteen individuals and three teams dared mother nature to get the best of them on Sunday, September 14. Four days earlier the venue at Stockade Lake in Custer State Park was covered with snow. But on race morning participants found nary a snowflake nearby. Still, temperatures which ranged from 29 degrees at race start to low 40s at the end of the day gave participants...
