COURSE INFO

We “Dare you to Tri” the Maple Grove Triathlon’s adventure through the charming countryside of Minnesota! The race starts with a swim in the pristine waters of Weaver Lake. Next racers bike the roads of surrounding scenic towns, which lead up to the finish, a run around Weaver Lake.

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Triathletes thrive in Weaver Lake Park’s 80 acres of event space where the event will start and finish. Crossing the Maple Gove, Plymouth, Corcoran and Hanover city limits, it will be easy to spot the countryside charm from two wheels on the bike course. Listen for cheers from eager neighbors who will watch the race from their front porch steps. Both the Standard and Sprint courses have been carefully designed with your safety in mind. To ensure a swift race, please familiarize yourself with each route prior to race day and take advantage of training on course. Supporting directional signage and volunteers will serve as a guide; however, it is the responsibility of each athlete to know the course.

RELAY TRANSITION AREA

A designated relay area will be available at the northwest end of the transition area. Relay teams will use this area for both transitions. Swimmers will meet their biker in the pen. Bikers will run to their designated bike rack and exit. Upon return, the biker will rack their bike and meet their runner in the relay pen. The runner will exit and complete the race.
