The Triple D
The Triple D Winter Race has been going strong for 10 years now! The first thing you need to know about the race – it is a bit of a circus… but that is by design! As you traverse the scenic route by bike, foot, or ski, you’ll receive little support. Whether you’re juggling water bottles as you skate down Heritage Trail, or balancing a tight-rope as you cross a thin bridge on the bike route, there is something for outdoor enthusiasts of all ability levels at the Triple D Winter Race! You can participate in anything from a nice 5k stroll to get out of the house on a winter day, or a 100k ultra-endurance bike race to really test your mental and physical fortitude! Other events include a half, full, and ultra-marathon (for runners and skiers) and a Poker Tour for bikers that want to enjoy a slightly shorter ride with more food and drink. There are many reasons racers come out each year to join this circus… what’s yours?
Registration is open!
Cross Dubuque County in the Dead of Winter - By bike, foot, or ski!
"Truly awesome race. Staff and other racers are all so helpful and friendly. Recommend to anyone looking to eat some pizza, drink beer, and maybe bike 100k..."Whitney Beadle
"Whether you're looking to finish near the top or simply finish eventually, Triple D is sure to please. The course provides incredible back-country scenery, great food at the checkpoints, and weather conditions that always provide an interesting challenge. I've completed the race twice, both under very different conditions (-25 degrees F & 30 degrees F), and both times provided an unforgettable experience. Do the race; it's one of those stories that you'll tell your grandchildren someday."Les Hollingsworth
"Great race. Would recommend to anyone that is looking for a fun 1/2. Couldn't ask for a better day to run. Congratulations to all that took the challenge on."John A Trickler
