Active Central MN will continue to operate the Graniteman Clearwater Tri and the Big Lake Tri in 2020. ACM is forced to cancel the Buffalo Tri, meaning there is longer an option for this endurance race series. Active Central MN is offering a NO RISK REGISTRATION POLICY, meaning racers will receive free deferments or full refunds if there is a cancelation. This also means if you cancel for any reason, we will still honor your full refund. This is made possible by our incredible founding partner sponsors: Viking Coca-Cola, Rollga, Williams Integracare Clinic, and Granite Equity Partners. A huge thank you for them!

Current registrants will be contacted and refunded for their Buffalo Triathlon registration. Their registrations for Big Lake and Clearwater will still be valid. 


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.
