Do you know how many multisport Race Records were set in Minnesota events in 2017? We didn't either, so we scoured the results and found that at least 12 RRs were recorded last season.* Here's what we found:

2017 Race Records:

  • Central Lakes Cyclery Duathlon – Jason Toth – 1:32:32 (Prior RR – 1:35:37)

  • Superior Man Half IM – Matt Cymanski (IA) – 4:01:40 (Prior RR – 4:04:21)

  • Superior Man 41.5 – Andy Wiberg – 2:16:53 (Prior RR – 2:23:24)

  • Brewhouse Sprint – Mike Ward – 59:41 (Ties Prior RR – 59:41)

  • Graniteman Big Lake Olympic – Kortney Haag – 2:13:09 (Prior RR – 2:16:48)

  • Buzz Ryan Sprint – Elaine Nelson - 53:16 (Prior RR – 53:21)

  • Bertram Blast Tri – Jon Balabuck (CAN) – 57:27 (Prior RR – 1:01:52)

  • Bertram Blast Tri – Emily Muellner – 1:08:17 (prior RR – 1:12:36)

  • Bertram Blast Du – Dane Ramsey – 55:42 (Prior RR – 59:24)

  • Graniteman Clearwater Olympic – Kortney Haag – 2:24:40 (Prior RR – 2:28:26)

  • Buffalo Sprint – Andy Wiberg – 56:44 (Prior RR – 57:06)

  • Cinco Du Mayo Long Course – Wade Cruser – 1:20:48 (Prior RR – 1:21:50) ....

     

Also, for grins, we looked at HEATHER LENDWAY's amateur scorecard to see how many of her race records are still standing. We were stunned. HL still holds an astonishing 12 RRs.
