Kick off your Memorial Day weekend with a run in downtown Elkhart. Course go through a small park and along the riverwalk, ending in the main park downtown.
The walkathon loop is at your own pace with continuous river views, close to the start/finish of the race so you will be part of the excitement! You can walk as long as you want to, as many loops. This isn't timed, so there is no pressure, just enjoyment. It's perfect for people who are there primarily to support others, people who are not sure how far they can go, recovery or PT exercise, etc.
5K run and Walk are very popular course with the locals and go through High Dive park.
The 10K gives people a chance to try out that distance, or get a baseline for the season ahead. The course also goes a distance down Greenleaf that is one of the nicest in Elkhart, with plenty of shade trees.
The 15K (9.3 miles) is a great tune up for the Sunburst Marathon or a good challenge for someone trying to push out their distance limit. The course goes through a lovely riverside neighborhood with stately homes and manicured lawns.
All courses are flat.
This is a fantastic way to get the season going. We will be offering super sprint and sprint distances this year! What does that mean? Your choice of:
400 yard swim * 14 mile bike * 3 mile run - $55
150 yard swim * 8.5 mile bike * 1 mile run - $45
The venue is perfect for families and spectators to hang out. It's located almost at the intersection of CR 17 and 80/90 tollroad. Who knew! So it's easy in and off the tollroad, exit 96. Loads of free parking.
Spectators/supporters get a great view of the swim course, since they swim parallel to shore. There is plenty of shade for a nice nap or you can enjoy some reading time while they are out on the bike course. OR you can always volunteer and be part of the event that way!
Participants will enjoy being able to take a warm shower after the event, so you can just clean up and go on with the rest of your day!
This venue is such a sweet hidden gem! Join us this year! If you have ever wanted to get into the sport, this is a great, friendly opportunity to do so. OR put a team together with your kids or neighbors, and each do one or two legs! Relays are a total blast!
This is a new race to benefit Alex Stscherban. Alex participated in a local triathlon last year, and collapsed after crossing the finish line. He was 28 years old and had a heart attack that resulted in an anoxic brain injury. He is still recovering.
Whether you knew Alex personally or not, I am certain you can imagine the horror of such a random incident. Alex played football in college, sailed big boats, worked out, bulging biceps and ripped abs, a good career....one of those people that seemed to have it all.
Now Alex is fighting his way back to "normal." It is going to take a long time.
The Diamond Lake triathlon is set in a very intimate setting, based out of the Paul's home on Sail Bay. The swim is literally out the back yard of the Paul home, with the blessing of the neighbors.
The bike and run are scenic -- with views of lovely homes and less traveled roads! If your idea of the perfect morning is swimming, biking and or running- then don't miss out.
Relay options are available, so bring your kids, your pals and join in the fun!
So spend part of your 4th of July at the fabulous Diamond Lake. Let's savor the precious days of summer and send a big wave of love out to Alex Stscherban.
Registration will be up soon! Save the date!
This is a popular local triathlon offering sprint and super sprint distances with a super friendly atmosphere. We literally swim out of the Daly's house, bike on a big square surrounding Edwardsburg and then run around the lake! Come visit this buccolic lake setting. After the event, a post race meal is served. We are also expanding the Kid's Triathlon this year, since we want to encourage the next generation of triathletes!
Boo Ha Ha! Sign up if you dare for this frightening and haunted event! Course begin and end in Bonneyville Mill County Park and feature some beautiful rollling county roads. You need to train for this one to make sure you stay ahead of the goblins. We also need to tell you that the Headless Horseman has been known to show up as well! Many runners dress in costume so they can blend in.
