Anxious to get your racing season started? The first outdoor multi on the Minnesota calendar is the UMN-Tinman Triathlon in Morris, which will be staged on Saturday, April 24. The 26-year-old event starts and finishes on the scenic UMN campus and consists of a 1K pool swim, 30K bike and 10K run.

Here is some Chamber of Commerce stuff (from website): Welcome to Morris, where country charm meets urban convenience. A place to live, do business, and have fun with both family and friends...

Morris is a rural community on the prairie of West Central Minnesota. With an approximate population of 5,200, Morris is located 165 miles northwest of Minneapolis/St. Paul and 100 miles southeast of Fargo/Moorhead. Morris is also the home of the University of Minnesota Morris.

Looking for numilious post-event sustenance? Race official Chad Braegelmann recommends the Old No.1 Bar (see banner), if you have a designated drive, that is, and the Pizza Ranch.

Are those cool belt buckles for sale?
