BUFFALO TRIATHLON

Since 2004, the Buffalo Triathlon has been one of the nations favorite triathlons with over 1000 participants competed each year in the sprint and olympic distance races.  Starting in the sand and ending on the stage at Sturges Park, the Buffalo Triathlon will always send you home happy and motivated!  With a rich history that runs deep into the community, the race continues to give back to the community of Buffalo and surrounding communities through its paid volunteer program, and invites people from all over the region to see all that beautiful Buffalo Minnesota has to offer.
