Welcome to the King Boreas Winter Triathlon! And Welcome to our new title sponsor, Renewal By Anderson!
We are very excited to be part of the Saint Paul Winter Carnival AND to have once again been awarded the Winter Triathlon National Championships from USA Triathlon!
King Boreas Winter Triathlon will take place on Saturday, January 27th, 2018 starting at 10am at Phalen Golf Course in St. Paul. The address is 1615 Phalen Drive East, St. Paul, Minnesota, 55106. Nestled in St. Paul’s East side, the venue is 20 minutes from our International Airport, 5 minutes from the heart of downtown, 15 minutes from premier Nordic ski shop Finn Sisu, both NOW Bikes and Fitness locations and Run’n Fun run store.
Winter triathlon is run/bike/ski. Check out the course information for details. Distances for King Boreas Winter Tri are 5km run, 17km bike, 6km ski.
We are working to solidify a man-made ski course as a B plan should we have a low/no snow year. IF we need to ski at another location, the triathlon will be a run/bike/break/ski. We will then combine the times. Hopefully this will not be necessary, but having this B plan ensures a proper winter triathlon!
New for 2018 is a Duathlon option (not included in National Championships). This is a 5km run, 17km bike and a repeat of the 5km run.
Relay options for Triathlon are available (not included in National Championships).
This part of town has seen lots recent improvements including many notable new eateries. Plus there are abundant winter carnival activities before and after the race!
