About This Activity

Welcome to the Annual Alphornman Sprint Triathlon in New Glarus!  The charm of America's Little Switzerland will transport you as the course makes its way through the quaint streets and rolling countryside routes around the village. This little town comes alive with tradition and excitement celebrating the Alphornman Triathlon.

All transitions will be in the Village Park along with the pool and the post-race pavilion. The race registration fee also includes admission as honored guests to the Swiss Festival Celebration - Volksfest at Tell's Shooting Park, located just 3 blocks from the Village Park finish. All race participants are invited to be a part of the post-race activities. Celebrate with an afternoon of great Swiss entertainment, great food and New Glarus beer, and great Swiss culture and tradition. Bring your friends and family to join in the fun after your race!

The AlphornKids Splash 'N Dash combines swimming and running and gives kids a taste of what it’s like to participate in a triathlon. The AlphornKids Splash 'N Dash will begin with a pre-race briefing near the flag pole in the Village Park. Participants will swim in the village pool before they head into the transition area and then take off on their run.
