Wisconsin Milkman Triathlon

Big news in the Madison triathlon community…

JUST ANNOUNCED: The Wisconsin Milkman Triathlon…Sunday, June 19, 2016…Olin Park in Madison.


I believe this is Madison’s first half-iron distance race. The folks at Race Day Events have been working for a couple years to make this happen and it’s sure to be a great addition to the Madison summer race schedule | whether it’s your 2016 “A” race…or a race to evaluate your training and work out a few kinks as you prepare for the 2016 Ironman Wisconsin.

In previous years, we have always had to travel to race a half-iron. A destination race is fun | but it adds some logistics that you don’t have to worry about when the race is right here in Madison, so now you can concentrate on the things that you need to in order to have a great race…or in order to evaluate your training plan as you prepare for Ironman. This is where you can see if your swim-stroke is still in need of improvement (mine always is)…if your bike fitness is where it needs to be…and what it feels like to RUN after a long bike ride. This is also where you can work on transitions | from swim to bike…and from bike to run, and where you can perfect your nutrition plan.

More information about the Wisconsin Milkman Triathlon is coming soon…including complete registration details. As soon as it’s all announced | we’ll have it here in the Active Zone!
