The Wolfman Triathlon, presented by Wolfman Triathlon Inc., one of the first off road triathlon's in Wisconsin consists of three segments: 3-mile whitewater paddle…13-mile mountain bike ride…and 3.5-mile rugged trail run.
Racers begin in kayaks/canoes on the very rocky 3-mile class II whitewater section of the Wolf River OR 3.5-mile trail run (Dryathlon) along the beautiful Wolf River just north of Langlade, WI. The downriver canoe/kayak and Dryathlon leg ends at the DNR landing in Langlade. Racers then pull their boats ashore and sprint to the bike racks for a 13-mile mountain biking portion of the race. After a short ride east on highway 64, the course enters the Chequamegon Nicolet National Forest* and the area’s extensive network of challenging technical single-track mountain bike trails of the Nicolet Roche. The course eventually exits the National Forest, crosses highway 55 south of Langlade into the Gardner Dam Scout Camp. The last leg of the race is a 3.5-mile rugged trail run which begins with a bridge crossing of the Wolf then runners run along the scenic Wolf River then wading the river back to the finish and after party!
Triathlon Tandem Teams
Tandem competitors race as a team. Tandem teams must paddle in the same boat. The bike and run segments are timed individually and combined into one score. The fastest combined time wins. If one member fails to finish, the team is disqualified.
Triathlon Relay Teams
For those interested in teaming up, a Relay option is available, allowing you to compete as a 3 person team. The fastest combined time wins. If one member fails to finish, the team is disqualified. And if you're having trouble finding a teammate, give us a shout and we'll do our best to pair you up with someone. Even better, give a shout out on our Facebook page, and you're sure to find some takers.
The Wolfman also features a Dryathlon consisting of 3 miles of trail running and 13 miles of mountain biking followed by the 3.5 mile trail run. All based on the same route as the full triathlon.
