2018 Lake Waconia Stuff...

LAKE WACONIA TRIATHLON - The 29th edition of this annual classic will happen next Sunday, and while it has long been one of our state's most competitive triathlons, it is also one of the most fun. This means that recreational multisporters need not be intimidated. Those who have never done this event should come and see what all the fuss is about. They'll be glad they did....

 

We haven't seen the registration list yet, and we can't make any predictions until we do. So instead we will share some of the race's competitive history.

We'll start my noting that the current course distances have been in place since 2007, though circumstances dictated the lengthening of the bike course in 2008, and the shortening of the swim in 2017, thus the stats we provide here do not include performances from those years.
