Launch special, now through Monday!
As we move forward into 2021,
we truly hope the racing world will begin to open back up. Below is our COVID-19 information that is set from 2020. As of right now, we do not know what the status of the pandemic will be for this summer, but we do know one thing…. the Graniteman Tri’s will continue to put on stellar events, and continue to meet all CDC and MDH guideline standards to provide an incredible, safe, and competitive race for you in 2021. Our No Risk Refund Policy (noted below) will remain in effect to make sure we continue to take care of athletes as we grow these events. Thank you!
The Graniteman Triathlon Endurance Series is on in 2021! As we approach the event, we will continue to monitor any concerns around COVID-19 and respond to any needs. We will work with recommendations from CDC and MDH to put processes in place to ensure a safe, fun, and challenging event in 2021.
We are excited to host an event in 2021 that will be compliant with all safe racing protocol guidelines! We have enhanced our cleaning opportunities, extended bike racks, extended the time frame of the race, operate the event as time trial starts, etc. and of course, will remain in the beautiful outdoors! We will continue to update as we announce a formal plan for the racing protocol in 2021.
Active Central MN is offering a NO RISK REGISTRATION POLICY for 2021, meaning if we cancel an event, or you need to cancel your registration for any reason, we will offer either a free deferment to another race, or a full refund. This is made possible by our founding sponsors: Williams Integracare, Granite Equity Partners, Viking Coca-Cola, and Rollga. A huge thank you to them for helping us honor our athletes!
SPRINT AND OLYMPIC 3 RACE TRIATHLON SERIES
The Graniteman Triathlon race season is comprised of 3 fantastic triathlons with your choice of sprint or olympic distances, unbeatable locations, venues, and courses. Each race course is unique and offers all of the important amenities a triathlete and spectator could ever need. See the events link above for specifics on each of the 3 races. Registering before June will get you all 3 races for one unbeatable price.
Awards are given to the top 3 males, females, and teams and are calculated by taking the fastest average times from all 3 races combined. Racers must choose either Olympic or Sprint for all 3 races, and must have registered for all 3 races prior to the Clearwater race to be eligible for series awards.
Every finisher gets a custom finisher medal when they cross the finish line, and everyone is eligible for the following divisional awards and prizes.
Age Group Divisions (Male & Female- 5 year age groups)
Medals for the top 3 in each age group
The Graniteman Triathlon Series awards ceremony will be part of the spring and Olympic distance awards ceremony at the Big Lake triathlon. Series standings will be posted prior to the last race so everyone can see where they stand going into the last race.
Tuesday Night Triathlon Clinics!
If you want to learn more about triathlons you’ve come to the right place! Each of our races has a triathlon clinic and group work out that everyone is invited to on the Tuesday night before each race. We will be speaking about the basics of triathlon and will share valuable insight about having a successful and enjoyable race.
If you are an advanced triathlete, bring your questions and experience as there will be plenty of answers and for you, as well as opportunity to share your knowledge with others. There will be free give aways to take home, and this is also a great way to check out the transition area and race course.
