2014 Fairmont Triathlon:

  • Mini, Sprint and Olympic distance events in Southern Minnesota's City of Five Lakes.
  • Course Information:


    Swim:
  • Swim competitions will be held on Budd or Hall Lakes.
  • Average temperature in Budd Lake for June 9 is approximately 71 degrees.
  • The Sprint (.25 mi) and Olympic (.93 mi or 1.5K) swim competitions will share a straight line course with buoys indicating the turn around points.
  • The Mini Swim Event will be in Budd Lake along the shallow edge near the beach house.

    Bike:
  • The bike course starts with a firm upward hill and some curves followed with a downgrade as you approach the first turn.
  • You will find a slight hill at the end of the 2nd mile and a turn at the top of the next hill.
  • From that point on the course is pretty flat, with some very small rolling hills.
  • The turn-around for the Liz Gomez Memorial Sprint bike course is on an open stretch of road and is very apparent.
  • The turn-around for the Olympic bike course is on County Road 8 next to Lake Okamanpeedan.
  • The bike course will be marked with signs every mile and volunteers will be located along the route.

    Run:
  • The run course starts with a hill near the beginning, followed by a couple of turns and then continues straight on a slight upgrade.
  • As runners approach a T intersection they will turn right and run straight along a slight decline to another T intersection.
  • The next portion of the course includes well marked short distances through residential neighborhoods.
  • Volunteers will guide runners through a turnaround to follow the same route back to the beginning marking the finish for the Sprint athletes.
  • At this point Olympic competitors will turn around and repeat the whole loop one more time.
