Dakotah! Sponsors Tenth Indoor Triathlon

Open to Public


Prior Lake, MN – Registration is now open for Dakotah! Sport and Fitness’ Tenth Annual Indoor Triathlon. The event, which is open to the public, will be held on Saturday, April 14, 2012. With an overwhelming early response to registration from previous participants, spots are filling quickly for the event. Registration will remain open until all spots are full.

Since the event will be held indoors, the competition is structured differently than a typical triathlon. The events are timed, and participants are judged on the total distance they complete in the allotted time period. The three stages of the event for adults are a 7-minute swim, a 30-minute stationary cycle ride, and a 20-minute run or walk on the indoor track.

The field of up to 60 participants will be divided into heats of six that rotate through the three events. The fee is $25 for DSF members and $35 for non-DSF members. Registration may be done online ( or by calling 952-445-9400. Participants will receive a t-shirt, and the top three male and female finishers will receive awards.

"This is a unique format so that any level of fitness can compete. Judging is based on cumulative distance to accommodate all fitness levels. It's set up that way to get more people involved," explained Dakotah! Sport and Fitness Director Tad Dunsworth. "Our participants have a lot of fun with this event.”
