We are excited to announce that the Loppet Winter Triathlon will serve as the USA Triathlon 2019 Winter Triathlon National Championship. This will be the fourth year the race will be held in the Twin Cities (formerly in St. Paul as the King Boreas Winter Triathlon). Hosting the event at the world class trails of Theodore Wirth Park ensures viable trails into March with over 6K of ski trails with machine-made snow. The Trailhead, the park’s newly-opened adventure center will serve as the race site. A triathlon relay option will also be available (not part of the national championship).
We strongly encourage the use of fat bikes for the bike leg of the triathlon. Other bikes will be allowed, but please realize that our ski trails can have a greater than 2-foot base. If the weather is warm and even just the top layer becomes soft, narrower tires may be almost impossible to ride. You can rent fat bikes at NOW Sports.
