While the pandemic situation is ever-changing, we are remaining positive that the Bluff Land Tri can be held. We encourage you to sign up and start training today. It is likely we will need to make adjustments to procedures to be in accordance with federal, state and CDC recommendations to ensure the safety of volunteers and participants. If the situation would change and the event is canceled, you will be given the opportunity to transfer your registration fee to 2021 or choose to donate the amount to the scholarship fund. This event funds scholarships for Rushford-Peterson High School seniors. In 2020, 16 students received $500 scholarships! Ready. Set. Train!
Enjoy the beautiful bluff country with its panoramic views along the Root River and atop Magelssen Bluff. Challenge yourself to a run/bike/hike event that promises to be fun. Participate as an individual in all three events, or as a three person relay team. Chip timed. Medals will be awarded to top finishers in each category.
