Chisago Half & Sprint - The 7th edition of this annual classic will be staged, as always, at Paradise Park in Chisago City on Sunday. Being somewhat nerdy, we like statistical stuff and will share some historical race stats with you here. As much as we like figures and numbers, we also like to not have to create new prose for the website every day. So here are the Chisago Lakes Half and Sprint records and some observations and predictions about Sunday's races.
Love for Protectors & Servers & Cheeseheads...

1st annual SHELL LAKE TRIATHLON - This event is the latest addition to the Frontrunner USA roster of multisport events and it will be staged in a cool village in western Wisconsin that is named for the lake next door. The town is well-known for its art center and summer jazz camp for kids. We thought you'd like to know.
We heard that Brendon O'Flanagan, who should receive a

Waseca Preview - The 5th annual Waseca 1/3 and Sprint is slated for Sunday and, well, we're kinda bummed. Why? It's on the same day as the Chisago Half and Sprint, which isn't great for either race, attendance-wise.
We have a very special chamber in our MTN hearts for Waseca. Not just the race and its bitchin' courses, but the town itself. It's one of those Midwestern communities that make you proud to be a Midwesterner.
Nearly everyone who has done the 1/3 IM has raved about event and MTN urges EVERY triathlete in our solar system to do it someday and see if you don't get hooked. Successful tri veterans like Dan Cohen, Matt Payne, Kevin O'Connor...

Buzz Ryan Sprint II - The 2nd edition of this event will be staged at Island Lake north of Duluth tomorrow. It will be held simultaneously with the Duluth Triathlon, a groovy 70.3 experience, which is also celebrating its second anniversary. The events were contested on separate dates in 2012.
Because the Buzzy Sprint and the Duluth Half are produced by the same folks that have given you the iconic Brewhouse Tri for the last gazillion years, you can be assured that the events will be totally good....

HOLT Preview - Minnesota triathletes are "Come Early, Stay Late-ers." Historically, they seem to spend more time chatting and laughing in the transition area before an event than they will spend on the race course. Then they hang-out for a similar amount of time afterwards. It's a totally cool deal.
This phenomenon is especially apparent at the Heart of the Lakes Triathlon, where the "Come Early, Stay Late-ers" come even earlier and stay even later. Yes, indeed, there is something special about this event that bills itself,...

Chaska - The Chaska River City Days Triathlon is celebrating its 10th anniversary on Sunday. And you're invited. This event features small town charm and a picturesque and challenging bike route. We wholeheartedly recommend this event. Good news. You can still get in. WEBSITE
Favored to win, as he did in 2012, is Kyle Serreyn, who is on the comeback trail, and according to him that road doesn't start in Munchkin Land. It starts in Chaska on Saturday. Check out his latest Blog post - LINK.
Also, we're picking Tracy Serreyn, Kyle's mom who won here in 2011, to join her son in the Winner's Circle. How cool would that be? (Actually, Tracy may choose to spectate. ALSO: We just learned that Brooke (Larsen) Plotz, two-time winner of the Tri Minnesota Series, has just enrolled, making her the current women's favorite. A win would be the 8th of her young career.)
Tri For a Cure - The 3rd edition of this big-hearted event will be Saturday at Serpent Lake in Crosby. Scenic courses, plentiful food and amenities and that cool Team thing they got going make this race special. Hey, you don't need to be a part of a team to participate. We encourage you to...
