Wausau boasts great outdoor recreation - whether paddling, running, or biking. The IRONBULL Summer Y Triathlon combines these three disciplines at the area's best venues on trails. We have partnered with Woodson YMCA to transform a great event, the oldest triathlon in Wisconsin, to these venues.
Two courses will allow both elite athletes to be challenged and racers of all ages and ability levels to participate. Racers in each division may compete individually or team up as a relay to specialize in their favorite discipline(s).
Racers will start off in water, but instead of a traditional swim, will be paddling kayaks. Racers will paddle down the Wisconsin River and across Lake Wausau with long course racers tested through downtown Wausau's world-class kayak course prior to being spit out into Lake Wausau. Racers will continue through an epic course, hitting top-notch trails on foot and on bike at Nine Mile County Forest.
