Race Previews

Stuff About Upcoming Races...

logoQuasi Previews - There are only a few races remaining on the Minnesota tri/du calendar, all of which, we reckon, are still accepting registrations. Coming up this weekend are the SQUARE LAKE races (12th annual Short Course, 11th annual Long Course) and our region's zaniest event, the BURRITO UNION 5 & 10 HOUR TRIS, featuring individual and various team racing options. The MTN Guys wholeheartedly recommend these events event though Randy doesn't advertise on our site (he's got his own branding and marketing vehicle) and he hires his nephew to announce (and he's totally good, gashdarnit!). And we recommend Burrito Union because we LOVE the event AND they advertise. And because race founder Rod Raymond is a HOOT! FYI, this year's bike course will be shortened from 14 miles to 10.4....

Saving North Mankato...

crockerED. Chris Crocker, the Mankato Multisport Club's Head Honcho / Big Cheese / sharp dresser (photo L), sent this letter addressing the future of the North Mankato, a 14-year institution, to fellow club members. This situation should be of interest to all Minnesota multisport enthusiasts.

Club members,

I've received a few questions trying to clarify the situation with the North Mankato Triathlon. Here are the high points:

The North Kato tri belongs under North Mankato Fun Days. North Mankato Fun Days is run by the Civic and Commerce Committee, which is an unelected group of folks from North Mankato that the City council has put in charge of commerce issues. The race is not run by the city council, and the Civic and Commerce Committee is not run by the city council either.

* There are two major outstanding issues with the race currently. One has to do with the size of the race, and the other has to do with who the new director will be....

Planning Ahead...

Like the SCVO, the SCVS has an auspicious history. Perhaps even auspiciouser. It is two years older, after all. Then there is the pig roast.

The SCVO has an auspicious history, both from the competitive and gastronomic standpoints. Great racing and sublime eating. The roast pig is totally nummy.
