Description

The BIATHLON is a 6.8 mile trail run on the Buffalo River Trail from Dillard's Ferry to Spring Creek followed by a 4.6 mile canoe/kayak race from Spring Creek back to Dillard's Ferry taking place on Sunday, October 11, 2020.  Biathlon participants may bring their own kayaks or rent.  Either option is available through registration.  Those who rent will find their vessel waiting for them at the transition area tagged with a number corresponding to their bibs.  All fees have been built into the registration pricing.

Additionally, the night of Saturday the 10th, there will be packet pick up, a dinner, and live music at Buffalo Point!  Everyone is invited!

TEAMS vs. RELAY Options:

TEAMS are defined as two athletes who will run the trail together and finish as a team together in their own tandem kayak or rented canoe. Teams who are renting will be given a canoe as tandem kayaks are not available as rental.

RELAY is defined as two athletes where one of which runs the trail and passes a baton to the other athlete who will complete the float and cross the finish line.

SHUTTLE vs. RENTAL Options:
SHUTTLE - This is for those who are bringing their own vessel to the biathlon.  Athletes will drop off their vessel, paddles and PFDs at packet pickup.  River outfitters will transport boats to the transition area.  Boats will be stored and secured.

INDIVIDUALS ARE NOT PERMITTED TO TAKE THEIR OWN BOATS TO TRANSITION AREA.

Those who attempt to, or do, bring their own boats to transition area will receive a DQ and will not receive a refund.

RENTAL - Those who are not bringing their own boat must use this option.  This is a higher fee than the other option as we are renting boats from local river outfitters.  Your boat will be waiting for you with paddles and a PFD at transition.  

Teams who are renting will be given a canoe.  Tandem kayaks are not available as rentals.
