The Kickapoo Reserve Dam Challenge Triathlon challenges participants to compete among the rugged hills of scenic southwestern Wisconsin's rural countryside and the Kickapoo Valley Reserve. Proceeds from this event benefit the Kickapoo Valley Reserve Education Program.
Paddle 7 miles down the winding Kickapoo River along rock out-croppings and through diverse vegetation. The river route begins at Bridge 7 and ends at Bridge 14, the Transition Area. Road Bike 14 miles through the hilly driftless area. The route takes you through the valleys and over the ridge, in one of Wisconsin's most scenic rural landscapes. Steep climbs and rapid decents provide the ride of a lifetime! All cyclists must observe Wisconsin traffic laws. Helmets required. Drafting prohibited. Trail run 3 miles in the Kickapoo Valley Reserve. The route starts with a short stretch on Hwy P, then to a winding and wooded trail and finally leads you down the Old Highway 131 Multi-Use Trail, which is a deteriorating road bed. The Transition Area is located on County P near Bridge 14 in the Kickapoo Valley Reserve. Parking for the race is here. A shuttle takes paddlers to the Bridge 7 start. The bike and run legs begin and end at the Transition Area. Check-in, refreshments, awards all happen here!
