TIMBERMAN OLYMPIC - It seems that every time ex-pro HEATHER LENDWAY races, the result deserves a Performance of the Year nomination. Her results at Lake Minnetonka (1:07:57) and Timberman (2:08:55--despite some extra cycling) in 2021 are prime examples, as is her result at this year's T'Man, which is arguably the finest of the three mentioned performances.

TIMBERMAN PREVIEW - Minnesota's original "Destination Triathlon," Timberman can also be called our state's "Resort Triathlon." For thirty-seven years athletes have booked lodging at Ruttger's Sugar Lake Lodge expecting and receiving a  true "racecation" experience. Few entrants pop in just for the race. Most stay for the full weekend or longer, availing themselves of the resort's amenities and the area's breathtaking beauty....
