Rushford Peterson Valley triathlon event gains momentum

The excitement surrounding Rushford Peterson Valley Tri-City Challenge and Conquer the Bluff is building. A project put forth by the Foundation for Rushford-Peterson Schools, the event is designed to bring awareness to the community and to raise funds for district students.

“We want to allow people who wanted to leave a legacy a means to do it. It’s a conduit for people who want to donate and this event is to raise funds for that purpose,” says foundation president Lisa Ledebuhr. “This is a collaborative effort to bring people to this beautiful area and bringing an awareness of our community and what we do.”

The two-day event is geared for all ages and all abilities and highlights the natural beauty of the Rushford Peterson Valley. Conquer the Bluff, a two-mile walk run on Rushford’s recently developed Maggelsen Bluff hiking trails kicks off the festivities Friday, October 3. Various routes along the 400-foot bluff are available, depending on difficulty. “It’s just for fun,” says an enthusiastic Ledebuhr.

Participants will gather at the historic Hoiland Mill at 3:30 p.m. and the event begins at 4 p.m. Included in the participation fee is a pasta dinner at the mill, beginning at 5 p.m., and an event t-shirt.

Early the next morning, the Tri-City Challenge, a run, bike, and golf triathlon gets under way. The event, developed in two tiers depending on length, is held on the paved Root River State Trail. Tier 1 encompasses a 4.7 mile run and 24 mile bike ride, while Tier 2 is a more moderate 2 mile run and 12 mile bike. Both tiers end with play of 9 holes golf at Ferndale Country Club.

Participants may register as individual, two-person or four-person team, or three-person relay. In either team option, each member of the team will compete in the run and bike portions, but will team up for the golf event. In the relay, the events will be split between the three participants. “This option allows people to take on events they want, with one running, one biking, and one golfing. It would be great to have something like three generations of a family take it on,” adds Ledebuhr.

Check-in for the triathlon begins at 7 a.m. at the Rushford Depot. Participants will leave their bikes and be transported to their designated start point in Peterson where the run portion will begin. Following the run returning to the depot, the bicycle segment will commence. Depending on the ch .....
