Race Previews




For decades, Minnesota's outdoor multisport season started in late April, but the rescheduling of the Morris Tinman (May 11) and the cancellation of the Falls Du has pushed the opener back two weeks.

At it's peak, our racing calendar boasted 83 annual multi races. Now that list is 40-races lighter. Bummer.

We can't afford to allow any more events to leave the calendar. We need to insure that the existing events endure.

How do we do that?

The MTN Guys suggest that every athete who can manage to do so, add at least one more Minnesota race to their schedule. If, for instance, two-thousand of our state's multisporters do that, that would be the equivalent of adding about 50 bodies to each of the current races....


Sure, some events would benefit more than others, so we recommend, as we did in 2018, that everyone make a point of doing a Minnesota race that they have never done before, especially if that event is staged in a rural area. Southern Minnesota was hit hard by cancellations over the last few years, so we'd love to see the events that are still happening--Tri For Health in Jackson, the Fairmont Tri etc. -- have increased turnouts.

And once again, we encourage everyone who can, to introduce the tri lifestyle to a friend, or colleague or family member. We love for 2019 to be the "Year of the Newbie."
