Alphornman Triathlon and AlphornKids Splash-n-Dash 2020 are CANCELED

As of June 18, 2020, the Alphornman Triathlon Committee has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Alphorman Triathlon and AlphornKids Splash-n-Dash. We believe this is the safest and most responsible course of action at this time for a variety of reasons and appreciate your understanding. Thank you to all of our past participants and sponsors! We look forward to seeing you for an amazing race in 2021.

In order to defer your registration, please watch this quick video for more information:

You can watch our Alphornman Facebook page for ideas to stay active, support the New Glarus community, and stay connected with our race. Stay well and we'll see you next year!

Here Are Your Options:

The New Glarus Alphornman Triathlon committee utilizes funds raised to support youth in the New Glarus area.  We support many youth recreation programs through financial support and the purchase of supplies.  We recently helped purchase a new scoreboard for our middle school, have provided nearly $10,000 in recent years to support youth athletic teams, and this summer will provide scholarship funds for youth to participate safely in youth baseball, softball, and open swimming. We deeply appreciate your generosity and look forward to seeing you at an event soon.

We understand. We hope you can join us next time.

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.
