2nd ANNUAL POWDER HOUND WINTER TRIATHLON
5K Run, 10K Mountain Bike, 5K Nordic Ski
10:00 AM Sunday, January 31, 2010 ● Homestake Lodge, Butte, Montana, USA
Homestake Lodge and the Bozeman Triathlon Club are partnering to deliver the POWDER HOUND — the first winter triathlon in the State of Montana and the northern Rockies.
Bark, growl, unleash your inner snow dog, and have a howlin’ good time, while running, mountain biking, and Nordic skiing on the groomed ski trails of Homestake Lodge, high atop the Continental Divide. Get out of your comfort zone, stretch your boundaries, and have another kind of racing fun!
The Powder Hound offers athletes – including triathletes, Nordic and downhill skiers, mountain bikers, cyclocross riders, cyclists, runners, swimmers, off-road enthusiasts, and many others — a terrific opportunity to expand their multisport skills, vary mid-winter training, improve fitness, and compete.
Rudy Project, Triton team sponsor and world renowned Italian manufacturer of sunglasses and helmets (www.e-rudy.com) , will be providing two $500 MSRP shopping spree packages for the first male and first female winner. The winners could score shades worn by Tour de France King of the Mountain Franco Pellizzotti and the world’s fastest new time trial helmet for their victories.
Registration for the Powder Hound Winter Triathlon is available on www.active.com. Participants may race as individuals, in pairs, or in teams of three. Registration includes the race, lunch, and a full day of Nordic skiing at Homestake Lodge, Montana’s best new Nordic skiing venue.
Race support volunteers are welcome. Various positions in the DOG POUND – at registration, in transition, timing or out-on the course — are available. Cheer the racers on! Volunteers enjoy a lunch and a full day of skiing at Homestake Lodge, too.
Come on out to Homestake Lodge, race or volunteer, and enjoy the entire day. Growling, howling and other basic powder hound communication skills are mandatory. Non-propulsive, snow canine accoutrements are welcome.
Come on! Discover the fun and competition of a winter triathlon. Be a POWDERHOUND.
