Race Report - Minnewaska Triathlon has become a family tradition of sorts. We love this race. It's full of small town charm. Where else would you find bikes that are "racked" lying sideways on the ground? The race director is a "hoot" as Jerry would say and always remembers us when we show up for our race packets. The volunteers and athletes are uber-friendly. And, it's the perfect distance and course for beginners. A 400-yard swim that runs parallel to the beach so you can touch bottom the whole way. An 11.1 mile bike that winds past the lake with it's beautiful homes and cottages and out to the countryside. Don't let the scenery fool you though. The bike course also has it's challenges including rumble strips, turns, and quite a few hills. Then a super flat and fast 2.5 mile run out and back along the lake....
