Our unique Ultra Mini Triathlon event offers three tracks of participation: athlete/team triathlon, novice/family triathlon, and a 5K Run/Walk.
The 5K Run/Walk is held on the same day as the triathlons but runs at its own time using the 5K run course for the triathlons. This option provides opportunity for all athletes to support FNMS.
The novice/family distance is set up for families, beginners, teams, and those wanting to say they completed a triathlon. The athlete/team distance is set up for those wanting a more challenging opportunity. Racers begin in a heated pool completing 1/8 mile or 1/4 mile swim. Next, racers move to the 3 mile or 20k bike ride around the Marathon City greater area and finish with a 1/2 mile or 5K run. Money raised goes the Foundation for Nager and Miller Syndromes. Saul Beranek, a Marathon City 13 year old, is the inspiration for this event and has Nager Syndrome.
