The 4th annual Gilbert Lake Triathlon was on Saturday, July 1, 2023, near 16130 Birchwood Lane. It started at 9 am with a swim.
New this year, there was an optional shorter bike route, that stayed in the neighborhood and did not go on the busier roads around the lake.
Reader comment: What great pictures and a great write up of the event! It’s so awesome to have you documenting these memories like this! Andy Rangen.
There was no scoring. Everyone was a winner and everyone had a good time.
It was a great way for association members to get together and have fun.
New this year was a neighbor's potluck immediately following the event. Many thanks to Andy Rangen for coordinating this and and the volunteers.
The third Annual Gilbert Lake Triathlon was Saturday, July 1, 2022, swimming In the lake started at 8:00 AM at Meyer’s dock. Again this year we had fun! Started and finished at Meyer’s dock after swimming to the trampoline in front of Karlgaards/Whitemans. For some, it was ferrying out to the trampoline and then swimming back to Meyer’s dock.
Bikes headed down McKay, through Northtown, turned right on Beaver Dam, turned right onto the Paul Bunyan Trail, turned right onto Wise Rd, turned right onto Riverside, turned right onto McKay and ended up back at Meyer's/Ryan’s driveway. (About a 9-mile bike ride)
Running was to the cul-de-sac at the far end of Birchwood Lane, then back the way they came. Took a left onto Andberg Way, then a right onto North Oak Drive, and then take a final right on McKay. Finished to lots of cheering at the “T” at Birchwood and McKay. Way to go! They did it!
This was a very friendly event with complimentary popsicles.
Note: Ashli and Fallon have enjoyed coordinating this energetic event, but they are searching for assistance in planning. Please reach out if you are interested in helping this year, or taking over the event prep in the future.
