The Chippewa Triathlon route follows the centuries-old “Pike Bay Connection” through the Chippewa National Forest in Cass Lake. Based on wind and forecasted weather, the final course will be set the night before or morning of the race. In the event we have inclement weather, the event may be delayed or altered. It has never been postponed, but if that happened, the event would be held the following day.
The Chippewa Triathlon is not solely a competitive event; organizers emphasize its value as a personal challenge and an opportunity to improve one’s fitness level through preparatory training. And, you get to see some beautiful country!
