The 4.5 mile kayak section begins in front of “Fisherman’s Inn” on beautiful Lake Zumbro, about 10 minutes North of Rochester, MN. where racers will kayak across the 3.5 mile lake. Upon reaching the end of the lake there is a small portage required to get below the dam (Racers will have to carry their own boats approximately 50 yards down a trail to the river).

The kayak section continues one mile down river to the first transition point located at Camp Victory. Here racers will leave their kayaks and jump on their bikes for a challenging 7 mile mountain bike race through the wooded forests of beautiful Camp Victory.

Plenty of elevation changes, and a variety of terrain to ride on will make this a memorable section. Strength and endurance will be the key here, you will not need to be an advanced mountain biker to be competitive, there will be no “technical” sections to this course. Terrain will consist of grass, dirt, mud, rocks and/or whatever you might find on a typical off-road trail.

The bike section will loop around to it’s completion at the main transition point where racers will hop off their bikes, don their running shoes and hit the trails again…on foot! Runners will be challenged with a variety of terrain and elevation changes as they navigate the scenic trails of Camp Victory once again. Runners will be treated to the stunning forest scenery, river views and overlooks the Zumbro River Valley offers. This final section is 3 miles long and will complete the race.

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 your team.

2. The 10K Trail Race
The 10K Trail Race combines 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. Runners will be treated to the stunning forest scenery, river views and overlooks the Zumbro River Valley offers. Feel the burn while experiencing The Climb and The Chimney and enjoy the zig zags of the singletrack and switchbacks while traversing The Edge. This IS adventure trail running!

3. The 5K Trail Race
The 5K Trail Race is a great shorter way to experience trail running. Trail runners will be challenged with a variety of terrain and elevation changes as they navigate the scenic trails of Camp Victory. Runners will be treated to the stunning forest scenery, river views and overlooks the Zumbro River Valley offers. Feel the burn while experiencing The Chimney and enjoy the zig zags of the singletrack and switchbacks while traversing The Edge. This IS adventure trail running!
