Race Coverage

Previews and Stuff...


SWIM/RUN and TURTLEMAN - Coming soon is a Swim/Run race report from CHRISTINA ROBERTS. We are also encouraging Turtleman participants to send us race reports, hopefully with photos. We'd be happy to post those stories. If interested, email your stories (or questions) to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..


WASECA TRIATHLON - We love this race, which celebrates its 10th anniversary on Saturday. Waseca is an awesome small town with a true "heartland" vibe. And the race venue and courses are outstanding. Two-time champ BROOKS GROSSINGER is returning, and is our pick to win the men's title. We haven't seen an updated registration list, so we are reluctant to predict a women's  champ or AG winners. We'd love to see a late surge of entrants--race day registration is available--pushing the field size over the 200 mark. RACE WEBSITE


GRANITEMAN BIG LAKE - Also slated for Saturday is the 8th edition of the Big Lake Sprint and 4th annual Big Lake Olympic. Like Waseca, this event is staged in a wonderful small city with an awesome tri venue. Total enrollment should exceed 300 participants. We expect victorious 2017 recidivists KORTNEY HAAG (Olympic) and TAYLOR LUNDQUIST (Sprint) to repeat.We suspect that a later registrant, one who was not on the list we perused, to claim the men's Olympic crown, and wouldn't be surprised if G-Man Clearwater Sprint winner BRIAN STORHAUG wins the BL Sprint as well....

1st Female Master - JEN NEUMAN

1st 50+ woman - LISA HINES, 57

1st 50+ man - KEN JANDA, 57
