It's late January in Minnesota, so it's time to start thinking about early season duathlons.
Below is a list of 5 great local duathlons either in the Twin Cities Metro area or just a short drive away. I've raced all of them numerous times (16 total races among these 5 races), so here are my 2 cents on these upcoming duathlons.
- Falls Duathlon, Cannon Falls, MN. Saturday April 27, 9 a.m. 2 mile run, 14 mile bike, 3 mile run. $45 through 2/28/13.
The Falls Duathlon is put on by Final Stretch, and they host professional yet low-key races. They tend to be great for beginners if you don't want to be intimidated and overwhelmed. That being said, they're good races for all abilities. ...
Smooth Roads & Craft Beer....

"Some have complained about the bumpy roads at Brewhouse, while others were bummed about there being no Brewhouse beer at the finish. Those issues have been addressed. Check out the changes and upgrades to this iconic northern Minnesota triathlon." - Rod Raymond

NORTHWOODS IS FULL - In case you haven't heard, the 2013 Northwoods Triathlon in Nevis has filled, doing so in a ridiculously brisk 90 minutes. This is the third, perhaps fourth, year in a row that the NWT has been our state's fastest filling multisport event. In the future, make sure you visit the race's website so that you know precisely when registration opens.
Congratulations to the producers of this great Tri Minnesota Series race. They are sooooooooo doing something right.
LAKE MINNETONKA ALMOST FULL - We talked to Lake Minnetonka Triathlon director Ross Rogney yesterday. He's a great guy, you know! Well, Ross informed us that his race, which won the Race of the Year award in 2009, has less than 75 spots remaining. Act quickly, 'cuz they will be snatched up soon. Once those slots are full, Ross will open 50 Charity Slots, which cost a lot of money, all or most of which will benefit a designated charity. WEBSITE (More stuff on next page)

Iceman Run Extreme 5k...January 12, 2013
Jerry's up for the challenge, are you?
by Bill Corcoran
When I started the Graniteman Triathlon in Central Minnesota 10 years ago, I never dreamed that it would lead to managing an event like Iceman. Patterned after our summer Mudman Race, the Iceman Run, at Daytona Golf Club in Dayton, MN, is a perfect mix of wintery obstacles and hard core trail running. Daytona Golf Club is on the north side of the Twin Cities and has a huge indoor area to keep warm before and after the race.
