The Wisconsin Triterium Triathlon, the second race of the 2013 Wisconsin Triathlon Series provides a looped course that is well-suited for beginners and spectator-friends. The bike course weaves through the surrounding hills after a calm swim in the quarry at Fireman's Park in Verona, Wisconsin. The moderately hilly bike and run courses give you a chance to out-climb the competition!
Each athlete will recieve a technical t-shirt, a safe course with an experience water safety team on the swim marked by large highly-visible buoys. Pre-race water and post-race refreshments will be served.
The course will be accurately measured and well-marked, and the race will be chip-timed by SMA timing. Transition will be secure and professional bike SAG will be provided by Trek Bicycles in transition and out on the course.
A pre-race clinic from a local pro triathlete and/or USAT certified coaches will be announced closer to race day. Please check the "Race Preview Clinic" section on this website for exact dates, times and clinic coach.
Throughout the season, the Wisconsin Tri Series scoring will be tracked on Athlinks, and at each race you will have the opportunity to enter a raffle for a Trek Speed Concept bike at the end of the series.
Swim: Both races will take place in a crystal clear quarry and wet suits will be allowed. The Olympic distance race will be three loops with the swimmers exiting the water, crossing over a timing mat, and re-entering the water between loops.
Bike: The sprint distance bike will be an out and back 11 mile race over hilly terrain. The Olympic distance bike will include two loops in a hilly and challenging terrain. Much of the bike course will be on portions of the Ironman Wisconsin course.
Run: The Sprint run will be one loop with an out and back section over a slightly rolling terrain. The Olympic distance 10K will be three loops over a slightly rolling terrain. A short and quite steep hill - a real attention getter - is included in the Olympic loop.
Transition Area: Transition is located in the Sandy Beach parking lot. Athletes should have their transition area set up at least a 1/2 hour before the race start.
