Homestake Lodge and the Bozeman Triathlon Club welcome your participation in the third annual POWDER HOUND — the first winter triathlon in the State of Montana and the northern Rockies.
The Powder Hound Winter Triathlon will serve as the USA Triathlon Pacific Northwest Region Winter Triathlon Championship, and again in 2012. The region includes Alaska, Hawaii, Idaho, Oregon, Montana, and Washington.
Bark, growl, unleash your inner snow dog, and have a howlin’ good time, while running, mountain biking, and Nordic skiing on the groomed ski trails of Homestake Lodge, high atop the Continental Divide. Get out of your comfort zone, stretch your boundaries, and have another kind of racing fun!
The Powder Hound offers athletes – including triathletes, multisport athletes, Nordic and downhill skiers, mountain bikers, cyclocross riders, cyclists, runners, swimmers, off-road enthusiasts, beginners from all sport disciplines, and many others — a terrific opportunity to expand their multisport skills, vary mid-winter training, improve fitness, have fun, and compete.
Participants may race as individuals, in pairs, or in teams of three. Registration includes the race, lunch, and a trail pass for a full day of Nordic skiing at Homestake Lodge, Montana’s best new Nordic skiing venue.
First place prizes will be awarded to all age division winners, courtesy USA Triathlon Pacific Northwest Region.
Registration for the Powder Hound Winter Triathlon is available at www.active.com/event_detail.cfm?event_id=1919667. A discounted, early bird entry fee is available until January 16, 2011.
Race support volunteers are welcome. Various positions in the DOG POUND – at registration, in transition, timing or out-on the course — are available. Cheer the racers on! Volunteers enjoy a lunch and a full day of skiing at Homestake Lodge, too.
Come on out to Homestake Lodge, race or volunteer, and enjoy the entire day. Growling, howling and other basic powder hound communication skills are mandatory. Non-propulsive, snow canine accoutrements are welcome.
