This is a standard short course duathlon: 5k run – 33k bike – 5k run. The race starts at Sartell Middle School then heads north through St. Stephen and back on River Road (County Road 1) along the Mississippi River.
As a local and state favorite, the Apple has a strong history of hosting top athletes and sent many qualifiers to World competition in 2013. In addition to having a very solid athlete group, we also pride our race on the course and volunteers that make it run smoothly. The course is challenging but well-marked, organized and scenic. Our volunteer base consists of many local athletes and families that have been a part of the race for years. We appreciate the local support from the City of Sartell, Sartell Police, Sartell Police Reserves, local public works, schools and businesses. Together we work closely to ensure a safe race.
