Rockman Challenge Sprint Triathlon - Watertown Daily Times Online : Calendar


Watertown , WI

» PADDLE Start the race with a paddle on the Rock river beginning at Tivoli Island. This first three mile leg will take you through Watertown VIA water. Make sure you check out the three large city parks and businesses along the paddle. Make sure you read the river properly. Go too far out of the channel and you will add significant distance and time to your race. Cut a corner too sharp, you may have to push pole. Just above the dam, exit the water river left and carry your gear 75 yards.

Re-enter the water below the dam and paddle to the boat launch next to Bethesda Lutheran Communities, about a mile. Did you notice the historic bridges? How about the geese?

» BIKE RIDE This is a challenging but reasonable 13.5 mile route.  Some hills and some flats, sure to please every level rider. You may notice how quickly you get into the country, another small town treat. The rolling glacial terrain of Jefferson county offers remarkable views on this route. Was that the same goose flying overhead?    Helmets are mandatory.

» RUN Now begin your 3 mile trail run. Certainly not as hilly as the bike ride but equally as challenging. Take notice of Bethesda’s’re helping support them right now! The wooded portion, Camp Matz, is full of chances to observe deer, squirrels or other wildlife. Get to the edge of the woods and look for the ducks, cranes and other nesting birds. Was that the same goose over your head?

» OBSTACLE COURSE  A short run with a twist. It is only a ¼ mile but

it contains military style obstacle course complete with Drill Sergeants and a swing over a water trap. Lastly, grab your RockMan Challenge Burlap Bag, put both feet in and holding the bag above your knee line, get to the finish line, 100 yards away. Congratulations, you just completed the RockMan Challenge!
