2013 RACE SERIES
THE MADISON TRIFECTA - RACE IN ONE EVENT, OR RACE IN ALL THREE!
Madison Marathon - July 28, 2013
Full, Half, and Team (4 runners) Marathon Events
The inaugural running of the Madison Marathon took place on the Sunday of Labor Day Weekend in 2008. We had no marketing funds and had a very late start to organizing the event due to high snow levels on the Gravelly Range. In addition, there was a lack of understanding of the US Forest Service event permit system not to mention complete ignorance on how to organize a race. Despite all this, a total of 36 runners participated. The 2nd Annual Madison Marathon was held on Sunday, August 2, 2009. Again, with essentially no marketing funds or a website but with a better knowledge of the road route and a developing relationship with the US Forest Service, a total of 53 runners participated. The 3rd Annual Madison Marathon was held on Sunday, July 25, 2010 on the same road and using the same route. With the help of this very cool website and better marketing, there were more than 90 runners. The 4th Annual Madison Marathon was held on July 24, 2011 and it capped out one month before race day.
The 2nd Annual Madison Duathlon - July 7, 2013
Bike: 15 miles, Run: 5 miles
The Madison Duathlon (bike/run) was the natural expansion of a good idea. The good idea was the Madison Marathon and we did not want to stop with just one good idea so we decided to launch the Madison Duathlon, too. We nearly held the inaugural in 2011, but ran out of time because we had to re-learn route development and permitting.
The 2nd Annual Madison Triathlon - August 11, 2013
Swim – 1,000 yards in Ennis Lake, Bike: 22 miles, Run: 6 miles
The Madison Triathlon is the final piece of the ‘Madison Trifecta.’
Early on, the goal was to build up to the triathlon after gaining some success with the marathon and duathlon. Well, the marathon success came early and we’re confident that the duathlon will be a success, too. So rather than wait one year for the final piece of the trifecta, we decided to launch it this year.
