HURON — The deadline for the sixth annual Ravine Lake Triathlon to be held on Aug. 9 is Monday. Registrants will save on entry fees by entering early.

This event began as a way to show off Huron’s oasis of fun with Ravine Lake and Putter’s and Scoops and has grown to be a favorite competitive event for casual and serious triathletes. The event features a sprint, beginner and kids’ triathlon along with a Corporate Cup Challenge

New this year, the Ravine Lake Triathlon will host the championship race for the newly-formed South Dakota Triathlon Association. “We are excited to host the championship event, but remain committed to encouraging triathletes of all abilities to challenge themselves to participate in a triathlon.”

The sprint triathlon will begin at 7:30 a.m. and include a 500-meter swim in Lake Ravine, 12.4 miles on the bike and a 5K run. Two or three-person teams of any male/female and age groups can compete in the sprint distance. Businesses are encouraged to form a team of employees or employee family members and compete for a travelling Corporate Cup.

The shorter distance, or En-tri, is perfect for anyone who wants to give a competitive event a try. Participants swim 200 meters in Lake Ravine, bike 6.2 miles and finish with a 1.5 mile run. Helmets are required and swim caps will be provided and are also required.

Kids can try either a mini-triathlon (ages 9-14 years) which includes a 200 meter swim, a 3.1 mile bike and 1.2 mile run or the traditional fun run around Lake Ravine. The fun run is free and open to kids ages 12 and under and will start after the race at approximately 10:30 a.m. No preregistration is necessary for the fun run and all participants will receive a treat.

Details about the event including registration deadlines and training schedules are available on the website at www.ravinelaketriathlon.com.
