The Pardeeville Triathlon- the third race in the Wisconsin Tri Series- provides a gently rolling bike course and a swim along the shore of Park Lake. The spectator-friendly 5K course weaves through the town of Pardeeville after a loop around the park. Each athlete will receive a technical t-shirt, a safe course with an experience water safety team on the swim marked by large highly-visible buoys. Pre-race water and post-race refreshments will be served.
The course will be accurately measured and well-marked, and the race will be chip-timed by SMA timing. Transition will be secure and professional bike SAG will be provided by Trek Bicycles in transition and out on the course.
