Galena Triathlon 2011

Registration opens in a few days for the 16th annual Galena (IL) Triathlon and Duathlon. Scheduled for May 21, 2011, the race through the hills of northwest Illinois is one of my favorites.

Don't be fooled by the relatively short distances (660-yard swim, 17.4 mile bike and 4.3 mile run.) Galena's hilly bike and run courses are tougher than many Olympic-distance races. Add to that the chilly (OK, icy) lake temperatures and you have a great test of your early-season conditioning.
