The Whitefish Lake Sprint Triathlon is an old fashioned triathlon in the heart of Whitefish. Check our website for course maps! Details are also listed below.
The Swim is a 1/2-mile point- to- point swim. It starts at the far left side of Whitefish City Beach and proceeds across the small bay to a buoy. Swimmers come back to the left corner of the public swim area. We haven't a clue what the water temperature will be. If summer weather holds it will be warm; however if there is a windstorm stirring up cold water, it will be cold. Conclusion: bring your wet suit.
The Bicycle route will start on Edgewood just behind City Beach Parking Lot. Bike to proceed down Edgewood to Wisconsin then left for 5 miles to a turn-around just past Hell Roaring creek. Return route the same coming back.
The bike is a scenic 20K out -and- back traveling along Whitefish Lake. The first and last 4 miles are flat and fast. The middle 4 miles are challenging hills with turns that will test your conditioning and bike handling skills. Be careful the course is open to vehicular traffic and is on curvy, hilly, narrow roads.
The Run is a 5K starting and ending at Whitefish City Beach traveling mostly on Dakota Ave. It is a 2 lap route.
The run Starts at Lakeside Blvd. to Skyles Place to a left on Dakota, then north to a cul-de-sac turnaround, where you will backtrack until the intersection of Dakota and Skyles,. Runners will continue to intersection with Edgewood, then right on Edgewood back to city beach for a second lap.
There will be an aid station on the run course that you will pass twice, offering an electrolyte beverage and water.
