The Ravineman Triathlon is set to take place on Saturday, July 30 at 7:30 am at Ravine Lake in Huron. This course features a flat bike and run and a fairly shallow swim. Participants will swim a 500-meter course across Ravine Lake and back, and then they’ll pedal their way 12.4 miles and run the perfunctory 5K.
The Ravineman tri organizers pride aptly pride themselves on a fast course that complements the seasoned triathlete looking to set a PR or the newbie triathlete who needs a fun and not-too-challenging experience.
This event is the only in the state with the Corporate Challenge, a fun event aimed to convince companies and organizations to foster a healthy lifestyle among their employees. Any company can enter a team, and the winning team will be the temporary owner of the Corporate Cup.
This year’s event will also continue in its tradition of offering a kids’ triathlon and fun run after the adults have conquered the course. Kids ages 9-11 and 12-14 will traverse a 200-meter out-and-back swim, 5k bike, and 1.5k run. Participants interested in any of these events can register here.
We look forward to seeing you all there. Our favorite bearded photographer will be there with the big-nose camera, so put on your best smiles or grimaces as you seek to become a Ravineman.
