This is not your average triathlon. You or your relay team will have a scenic journey to the badlands while you kayak, bike and run through Glendive. Your journey will start at the Glendive Boat Ramp off of N. River Ave where you will kayak on the Yellowstone River for 8.3 miles to the Kemp’s property (the area will be well marked). Then you will get out to grab your bike and ride 11.5 miles down Bell Prairie Road on gravel and back into town where you will park your bikes at the EPEC. Then you will run 2.1 miles into Eyer Park where you will finish your journey. At the finish we will have a beer garden, food trucks and vendors to help you celebrate your journey to the badlands and replenish those calories you lost along the way.

*Kayaks, canoes and paddle boards will all be acceptable for the water portion.  Your flotation device is your choice as long as it is a one man vessel without a motor. 

*This will be on an open course please be aware of your surroundings at all times.

**When signing up online with a relay team your kayaker will be the "swim" leg.
