Montana Multi-sport Paradise on Flathead Lake
Saturday, August 17, 2013
Olympic Distance: 1.5 km swim, 40 km bike, 10 km run

For many years, the Montana multi-sport community has anticipated the ultimate regional triathlon event in Polson. Last year, that dream became a reality and we are now preparing for a second round in 2013.

Our venue is nestled on the pristine shore of Flathead Lake with the towering peaks of the Mission Mountains providing a breathtaking backdrop. We have an energized community of local athletes and volunteers who promise to treat all participants to a premier event, complete with all of those athlete friendly features and some unexpected perks you don’t see every weekend. We also hope to attract a large field with a nice mix of nervous beginners, endorphin-loving enthusiasts, and serious competitors.

Please join us at Riverside Park for the second edition of this special event!
