The Kiwanis Club of Baxter and Sertoma Club is proud to continue the tradition of this beautiful and exciting triathlon. The Brainerd Lakes area has long been a great vacation destination and have one of the premier Sprint Triathlons. The Lakes Country Triathlon continues to build into one of the best triathlons in the state. We hope you will enjoy the great bike course that is over the river and through the woods. It is a beautiful ride with very little traffic.


The race begins with a 1/4-mile swim in quiet Whipple Lake (known for its calm waters), then switches to a 14-mile bike through the rolling hills surrounding the Baxter/Brainerd Lakes area and ends with a very flat 3.2 mile run through a quiet residential area. The Lakes Country Triathlon is a great race for beginners or seasoned veterans.

All cyclists must observe Minnesota traffic laws. Bike certified hard-shelled helmets are required. Drafting is prohibited and will be monitored closely. No listening devices are allowed on the bike course and are strongly discouraged on the run course for safety reasons.



Registration will close on Thursday, August 22nd at 11:59 pm.  No entries will be accepted after this date. Orders received after Monday August 12th at 11:59 pm will not receive a T-shirt. Please register early. 

Proceeds raised from this event will be put back into the community to benefit the youth in the Brainerd Lakes Area and other charities.


As we get closer to the event, we will be monitoring recommendations from the CDC and MDH to develop a plan to ensure a safe event.  We will work closely with our city and county officials on implementing that plan.  More details will be posted on our website as we get closer to the event.

Additional Donations to help the children in the Brainerd Lakes Area, Minnesota, and beyond are greatly appreciated.  Click the Donate button at the upper left of the screen.  Thank you very much!


Registration fees are non-refundable.
