Cinco is Back!

CINCO DU MAYO PREVIEW - After a three-year hiatus, the Cinco Du Mayo Du is returning to the calendar on May 7 . Staged at Square Lake, which is one of our state's premier racing venues, this event will consist of a newly designed Standard Distance Sprint course (5K - 30K - 5K) race only. (The prior Sprint was 2 -10 - 2.) In year's past, Cinco had also featured a Long Course race (3 - 20 - 3), though that race has been dropped as the post-pandemic multisport world works to rebuild its participant base. The sprint race is a wonderful test for athletes of all performance and fitness levels, but is especially welcoming for newbies.

Had a Long Course race been included, this year would mark its 13th edition. The "old" Sprint had a ten year run. The new race is just that: new. And improved, too. (It's using the popular Square Lake Triathlon's run and bike courses.) So check out the inaugural edition of the "new" Cinco Du Mayo Duathlon on May 7.

MTN pays close attention to the performance histories of Minnesota's multisport races. Here are the top performances turned in at Cinco in both the Sprint and Long Course races leading up to this year's event:  ...
