Iron Maiden Triathlon… just one week away!


All over the Northeast, teams are gearing up for the infamous IRON MAIDEN TRIATHLON held on the last Saturday in July.  Members of the Peru Nordic Masters and the Saratoga Biathlon Club have been crushing it in and around Peru.   Rollerskiing, Biking, Hiking, Running, Mountain Biking and copious Pre-Covery sessions have been molding these elite athletes into rock-hard racing machines!

The Iron Maiden Triathlon is a 2 mile run, 20 mile bike and 5 mile Rollerski throughout the Nordic Skiing Mecca of Peru NY. This is a fun race with no entry fees or any great awards, competitors choose to do this race solely to challenge themselves and to have a great time on a Summer morning.

You may enter as a two or three man relay team… or have some cajones and do it solo!
Or… do the Bike-Only Uniathlon (forget running and rollerskiing, do the complete course on your bike!)
Or do The Run-Bike-Run Duathlon (skip the rollerskis and run up the HILL OF DEATH!)
