Please join us on October 12, 2014 for the 9th annual, but entirely re-imagined, Croixathlon!
The 9th Annual CROIXATHLON is a DUATHLON!! What? Yes, a duathlon! Join us for a 1.5-mile trail run, 15-mile rolling hill bike, followed by 3-mile trail run race held on the grounds of beautiful grounds of YMCA Camp St. Croix.
This event offers an unparalleled venue; a private wooded YMCA camp nestled on the bluffs of the St. Croix River, a spacious and secure transition area in the heart of the camp, a bike route with pastoral views and rolling hills, and run routes on trails and paths that overlook the stunning river gorge. Though not certified, the course is set in accordance with USAT guidelines.
In addition to beautiful and challenging course, you can expect a supportive atmosphere and homespun charm. The race directors want you to enjoy some of the joy of camp that inspired this race in the first place, so prepare to chuckle, cheer and hand out some high-fives.
Croixathlon honors top elite finishers as well as age-group finishers by 10-year increments. And of course, the most coveted prize remains intact. Kudos and accolades will be again be awarded to the fastest male and female up the beach ravine (the "beach path" is the 400-yard beach-to-bluff transition trek and a Croixathlon signature feature). The Queen and King will receive a cape, a crown and free admission to next year's Croixathlon.
Course specifics, volunteer opportunities, race-day details will be emailed to participants in early October.
