The Tri can be done as a team of 1, 2, or 3; you decide who will do which leg. Please note that if multiple people are on a team, only one person needs to register the team for the Tri.  The Tri will  be a continuous event, with time starting at the beginning of the run and finishing once the briker rides across the finish line.

We will have heated registration, bathrooms, and changing areas.  We will also have multiple bonfires and hot drinks and snacks to keep you warm.  We are working on procuring a band as well as a food cart to provide hot soups and sandwiches.  Come out and lets make it a spectacular Full Moon party! 

Course, Race, & Equipment Info
Each leg of the race will cover a different course.  The Run and Ski will be on the RAFT trail, and the Bike course will be around the Rodeo Grounds.  All courses will be groomed, however the condition of the snow is up to Mother Nature.  For the run, wear shoes and additional snow gear such as Yak Tracks or Snowshoes as appropriate for your comfort and safety level.  The Cross Country Ski will have two groomed Nordic tracks, one outgoing and one incoming, with the sake skiers sharing the middle.  The Bike course will be groomed for fat bike riding.
