Thanks to all the racers, sponsors, and volunteers for another great event in 2013. We had a few sophomore glitches, but overall the race was a big success and another step towards the dream of a regional multi-sport jewel. Link to the results above and click on the Results and Photos page to check out some great photos from all the days activities. I am still trying to track down a few more pics of folks who got missed.
Next year’s Polson Triathlon will be Saturday, August 16. Look for online registration starting on April 1, 2014. Spread the word so we can hit our 200 racer goal.
KIDS RACE – New for 2013 – This year we are planning to add an informal kids mini triathlon for ages 6-12 that will start around 12:30 or 1:00. The distances will be approximately 50 yard swim (life jackets allowed), 1.5 mi bike, and 0.5 mile run. Bring your families, bikes, and helmets to join in the fun (no preregistration or entry fee).
Check out the 2012 race pictures posted on the Results and Photos page.
2013 Polson Triathlon – Saturday, Aug 17
The race was great last year, but it will be even better the second time around. We will have more prize money and better awards, course improvements and better racer support, faster lunches, a cool new water bottle and clothing item, and much more.
Please contact me if you have any questions or suggestions -

We had an awesome first year race and made some great memories. Thanks to all the racers who survived a tough course, to the sponsors who made the event possible, and especially to all the volunteers who spent so much many hours to pull it off in grand style. It was pretty special for me to finally see the dream come true right here in my home town.
Montana Multi-sport Paradise on Flathead Lake
Saturday, August 17, 2013
Olympic Distance: 1.5 km swim, 40 km bike, 10 km run
Welcome to the Polson Triathlon –
For many years, the Montana multi-sport community has anticipated the ultimate regional triathlon event in Polson. Last year, that dream became a reality and we are now preparing for a second round in 2013. Our venue is nestled on the pristine shore of Flathead Lake with the towering peaks of the Mission Mountains providing a breathtaking backdrop. We have an energized community of local athletes and volunteers who promise to treat all participants to a premier event, complete with all of those athlete friendly features and some unexpected perks you don’t see every weekend. We also hope to attract a large field with a nice mix of nervous beginners, endorphin-loving enthusiasts, and serious competitors.
Please plan to come join us for the debut edition of a really special event.
