The Kickapoo Valley Reserve will hold its 20th Annual Dam Challenge Triathlon on Saturday, Oct. 1. Participants, volunteers, and spectators are encouraged to attend and help celebrate 20 years of this fundraiser.
“Racers will enjoy a new route and transition area; let’s just say we are putting the ‘dam’ into Dam Challenge,” said Jackie Yocum, race director at the KVR .
Founded in 2000, the KVR focuses on sustainable outdoor recreation and natural-world focused education. The Dam Challenge Triathlon is a fundraiser for education programing on the Kickapoo Valley Reserve, which provides instructor-led, outdoor, nature-based opportunities to over 10,000 learners annually.
Racers are encouraged to register before Sept. 19 to be guaranteed a race T-shirt and other items. Register by visiting Kickapoovalley.wi.gov or call the KVR Visitor Center at (608) 625-2960 for more information.
Anyone wishing to sponsor the Dam Challenge or reserve vendor booth space at the event should contact Kickapoo Valley Reserve Dam Challenge race officials at (608) 625-2960.
In celebration of the 20th annual Dam Challenge, there will be live music, vendors, food and more all day on Oct. 1. The Friends of Kickapoo Valley Reserve will offer the annual pre-race pasta supper on Friday, Sept. 30, from 5–8 p.m. at the KVR Visitor Center. Everyone is welcome to attend.
