Get ready to paddle, pedal, and run your way to the finish line at the Rochester Eco Tri. A fun event consisting of a 4.5 mile kayak race (rentals available), 7 mile mountain bike race, and a 3 mile Run.

The trail races combine the adventure of both the bike and run sections of the Eco Tri. Trail runners will be challenged with a variety of terrain and elevation changes as they navigate the scenic trails of Camp Victory. 

Participants will be treated to stunning forest scenery, river views, and overlooks of the Zumbro River valley. Feel the burn while experiencing The Climb and The Chimney and enjoy the zig zags of the single track and switchbacks while traversing The Edge. This is adventure mountain biking and trail running.

Race Details

Race Date: Saturday, July 29, 2017
Start Times: 10K 8:00 AM
5K 8:15 AM
Eco Tri 9:00 AM

Location: Camp Victory
58212 403 Avenue
Zumbro Falls, MN 55991

Equipment:
Kayak: Bring your own kayak or canoe if you have one, or you may contact one of our race sponsors "Boulder Dam Canoe & Kayak" to rent one. They have provided us with a great rate for a kayak rental. $25 includes the kayak, paddle and life jacket. They have also agreed to provide access to the boats from 6-8 pm on Friday if you'd like to get familiar with the equipment before the race.

Bike: You will need a bike capable of "off-road" use. This is a not an "extreme" course, you will not have to cross logs or anything too "technical". However, a road bike with skinny tires will not handle the off-road terrain very well. Also, if the conditions are wet, an off-road tire will perform much better.

Run: A good pair of running shoes is all that is required here. Some may prefer "trail running shoes" that offer greater stability for off-road terrain. You will be running mostly on hiking trails, there may be loose dirt, gravel or even mud so plan accordingly.

A word on TANDEMS: Tandem kayaks or canoes are acceptable in this race ONLY IF USED SOLO. This is a solo
element race only. This means only one person per element regardless of team or individual. A tandem kayak or canoe
with two people would be a significant and unfair advantage.

Equipment Security: Racer's equipment are the responsibility of the racers. The Rochester Eco Tri and/or Camp
Victory are not responsible for any equipment left unattended. However, the Rochester Eco Tri and 10K Trail Race
along with Camp Victory will provide moderate security for your equipment. 
  • Kayaks: If you want to bring your Kayak in the day before, there will be a cable lock system at Fisherman's Inn (starting point). The cable will run through all kayaks and be padlocked.  The Race Director will hold the key and it will be unlocked first thing race day morning when staff/volunteers are present.
  • Bikes: Bikes are welcome to be left within the corral/transition area at Camp Victory the day before.  There is no further security for bikes.  The front gate to the camp property will be closed over night.
TEAM ECO TRI RACING 
The Rochester Eco Tri provides a team option to enjoy this great race even though you don't want to or are unable to do all three elements yourself. The TEAM option is RELAY STYLE and involves a team of two or three racers each taking an element.
For instance: A three person team would have one person kayak, another mountain bike, and then the last person run and finish the race. A two person team would be similar except one person would do two of the three elements.

The transition corral becomes the "tag" point for yuor team.
