Her stalwart 1:32:23 over the challenging 5K - 33K - 5K route is a full minute faster than Apple's pro record--Brianna Boehmer's 1:33:23, set in 2004--and almost three minutes faster than that of the 2nd fastest amateur clocking--Marnie Walth's 1:35:11, posted in 2008....

Apple History -There isn't a finer duathlon in the US than The Apple. There just isn't! The oldest ongoing multi in Minnesota, this event will celebrate its 30th anniversary on Saturday, May 26. Cool!...

GWD Turns 20!

gwdRace Preview - The Gear West Duathlon will celebrate its 20th anniversary next Sunday. Cool, huh? Hey, don't you think you should be on hand for the celebration? If you haven't registered yet, we suggest you do so at your earliest opportunity.

Historically, the GWD has been the first major race on the Minnesota multisport calendar. As the annual launch of the Midwest Multisport Series, arguably the most competitive amateur multi series in America and has been since its inception in 1998, it draws an outrageously deep field. On several occasions in the past decade, the GWD has assembled the most talent-rich amateur field of the entire Minnesota season....

Blaine Tri Stuff....

logoRace Preview - For the last seven years the Albert Lea Triathlon was the first multi on the Minnesota calendar that featured a lake swim. Earlier races were either duathlons or the swim portions took place in pools.

That changes this season. The inaugural Blaine Triathlon on Saturday, May 19, the day before the 8th annual Albert Lea Tri, is a cycle-heavy race consisting of a .3 mile lake swim, two 8.35 mile bike loops and a 3.5 mile run.

Race organizers established a 300-participant enrollment ceiling, which was reached several weeks ago. How cool is that? MTN sends our hearty congrats...
