MK Triathlon and Splash n Dash Cancelled this Year Due to COVID 19

The MK Triathlon race committee has been monitoring the COVID-19 crisis carefully and we regret to inform you that we’ve decided to cancel the race for 2020. We feel the risks due to COVID-19 outweigh any benefit holding the race will bring. If you’ve already registered you will receive notification of your options for a full refund. We are so grateful for all of your support throughout the years and hope you will join us in 2021 when we kick off the race again! 

Here Are Your Options:

Michelle Koss started this race as a fundraiser for the Antigo Penguins Swim Team. 100% of race proceeds go to fund the team and toward running the MK Triathlon. If you choose to donate your race fee, your donation will be used to purchase swimming equipment for the kids, to pay coaching fees, and/or to pay for race supplies. Thank you for your consideration!

Thank you for registering for the MK Triathlon! We’re sorry we won’t see you at the race this year, but we hope you’re able to join us next year!

Known as one of the most scenic places in Langlade County, Jack Lake will again be host to a day of racing, eating, drinking and music to support the Antigo Swim Club!  The MK Triathlon & Splash-n-Dash will be held on Saturday July 14th at Veterans Memorial Park, just north of Antigo, WI.  Jack Lake is known for its crystal-clear water and the surrounding area for its miles of challenging trails that wind through pristine forest. The weekend’s events include an offroad triathlon, a swim/run duathlon and kids race. Competitors can compete in either the solo or team divisions. 

The original Splash-n-Dash was created by Michelle Koss who was tragically killed in a bicycling accident in 2016. Her desire was to see the Splash-n-Dash become the sole fundraiser for the Antigo Swim Club, to encourage heart-healthy activities and to bring the community together in a fun atmosphere. The Splash-n-Dash has matured over the years in pursuit of these goals and we would love to have you join us as we strive to create a fun environment for your friends and family. Our goal is to one day draw athletes from all over and make this a premiere community event in northern Wisconsin. We are proud to be a part of this tradition and we hope that you will join with us as we all pursue Michelle's vision together.

Please check us out on Facebook and share this exciting event with your friends! 

Lodging is available at hotels in Antigo or for the more adventurous, at the Jack Lake Campground, where there are modern cabins for rent, back-country campsites and well-kept drive-up sites that will appeal to every outdoor enthusiast.
