Galena Triathlon & Duathlon
May 21, 2011
The Queen Anne Guest House welcomes participants of the Galena Triathlon and Duathlon. We look forward to listening to guests and family members sharing their stories of the big race.
The Galena Triathlon & Duathlon is a challenging point-to-point sprint distance race held in picturesque Jo Daviess County. This popular event has been named one of the "top 10" sprint triathlons in the U.S. by USA Triathlon (USAT).
For triathletes, the event begins with a swim in the clear, cool waters of Apple Canyon Lake with a beach start and finish. The swim-to-bike transition is adjacent to the beach. Duathletes begin with a 2-mile run.
The second leg of the race is a breathtakingly beautiful 16.8-mile bike ride on the hilly and winding country roads of Jo Daviess County. The second transition area is located in the heart of Galena Territory at Eagle Resort & Spa Special Event field.
The final leg is a 4.3-mile run, which winds up and down the picturesque lanes and roadways. The finish line is located at Eagle Ridge Resort & Spa's Special Event Field, the site of the post race party.
