Race Previews

Five Good Reasons to do Cinco!




RACE PREVIEW - Every Minnesota multisport event has a lot of good reasons why you should sign-up. Some have more of those good reasons than others. The CINCO DU MAYO Long and Short course duathlons, which will celebrate its eleventh anniversary next Saturday, is one of those "more good reasons" events. 

Let's list a few of those reasons:

- SCENERY - Staged at Square Lake Park, the environs could not be more scenic.

- COURSES - Yes, they are challenging, but multisporters are challenge-seekers, right? And you won't find prettier courses anywhere in the upper Midwest.

- VIBE - Sure, some serious folks will be there, but first and foremost, Cinco is an event for the recreational athlete, an excuse to celebrate healthy living and embrace our beautiful state and our outstanding quality of life here...


- FRIENDSHIP - Races are as much for meeting people and making new friends as they are for testing your speed and fitness. Low key events like this one are especially inviting because, for most, the stress levels are dialed down.

- TACO PARTY - Cinco is the only multi in Minnesota that features a post-race taco party. How cool is that! And we're not talking Taco Bell, here. We're talking about Casa Lupita, which prides itself on its authentic Mexican fare.


If you haven't registered yet, we certainly hope you'll do so at your earliest oportunity. EVENT WEBSITE
