Come experience “Escape from the Vista Fleet” into Lake Superior.

We are super excited and honored Clint and Andrea chose us to take over the reins for one of the most unique triathlon experiences in the country. This event has a rich and exciting history since its launch in 2012.  The event is held downtown Duluth at the Bayfront park area.  You are not just swimming in Lake Superior it is the Duluth Minnesota bay .  You will be running and biking along Lake Superior.  (TBA)Kayak and Stand Up paddleboarders will head out and back along the peninsula.  Something to challenge everyone in the family to come to spend the weekend with us in beautiful Duluth.  

duluth3-1 EventThe Ojibwe name for the lake is gichi-gami (pronounced as gitchi-gami and kitchi-gami in other dialects), meaning "great sea". Henry Wadsworth Longfellow wrote the name as "Gitche Gumee" in The Song of Hiawatha, as did Gordon Lightfoot in his song, "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald".

Tri-1-Logo-Final-01 Event Our exclusive TRI - One program was launched many years ago when athletes raced as part of their training, rewarded themselves for all the training they were doing and to gain all that important race day experience you cannot simulate.  As the multi-sport community has evolved to the opposite now we are bringing back the program.  it is really simple, you need more open water swim training? great, cmon out and get it with our lifeguards and courses.  Want to get a nice hard time trial on the bike in?  cmon out and race on our course.  Need to get a run in and want to do so with aid stations?  cmon out and join other runners.  

Each TRI - One will have a designated start time, you will simply head to the TRI - One start flag for the discipline you choose, line up, and when the clock strikes and the horn sounds you are off.  With our events, time trial swim starts now you will line up accordingly.  Or if you want to take the Kayak or SUP out for a nice paddle with others where offered. 

The cost for these is a flat $25.  For that, you get a finisher's medal and access to the post-race food tent.  You may purchase a shirt for $10.  

You can register online or onsite.  If onsite it is cash only!  

  • Custom Long Sleeve event shirt
  • Half athletes finishers item (TBA)

Athletes Responsibility

Due to an increasing amount of athletes entering events they may not be properly trained for, we are asking each athlete to be responsible and honest with his/her ability to complete the distance registering for. Due to safety concerns for everyone involved including you the athlete, but also the support crew volunteers and officials like police, sheriff, fire department, etc. we must instill course cut off times at 7 hrs. Raffle and awards start at 3 hrs and 30 minutes in Olympic distance events and 99% of all athletes are finished by that time. So you must register for the event you will finish under that 7 hour time limit. Being a responsible athlete means if you cannot complete the Olympic distance comfortably under that time we recommend you participate in the sprint event. We encourage you to train for the goal to reach that half iron distance under the 7 hour time limit. If you do not have a clear idea as to how to achieve that goal we are here to help, please let us know.

An athlete will be informed he/she has reached the 7 hr. cut off, at which time the athlete will acknowledge he/she understands completely and he/she will be brought in off the course by the course coordinator. If the athlete refuses this he/she will be informed that there will not be any support left on the course from that point and he/she must acknowledge this and understand he/she is continuing under those circumstances at which time the athlete will remove the timing chip/strap and give to the course coordinator.  

Again an athlete must take responsibility on as an athlete understanding his/her ability at the time of the event. Knowing that support crew volunteers, as well as other personnel out on courses,  must be kept in safe conditions as well.
