About This Activity

This competitive sprint-distance race, great for both veteran and novice athletes, is staged at beautiful Bixler Lake just north of Fort Wayne, with 500 meter lake swim, 12.75 mile bike race including highway straight-away and 5-K cross-country style run, including a stretch in and around the authentic windmills of the Mid-America Windmill Museum before a shady and spectator-friendly finish in the park. Two and three person teams are permitted.  High-quality race timing is offered by Race Services Inc. The race is open to individuals, two and three-person teams and youth ages 15-17. The swim and run are laid-out in a spectator-friendly fashion, and the park setting, includes children’s play equipment to entertain younger spectators. Although the course was designed by triathletes, generous time windows keep the race suitable for those seeking a fun fitness goal. The race accepts up to 300 bikes. Co-sponsors include KPC Media Group Inc., Kendallville Rotary Club, the City of Kendallville and the Cole Family YMCA. Funds raised by the race support the KPC Newspaper In Education (NIE) program in the northeast Indiana counties of DeKalb, LaGrange, Noble and Steuben.
