The fifteenth annual Kickapoo Reserve Dam Challenge Triathlon will be held on Saturday, October 7, 2017 (http://kickapoovalley.wi.gov/damchallenge). This challenging and scenic triathlon event includes a 7-mile paddle on the Kickapoo River, a 15-mile road bike, and a 3-mile trail run. All legs of the race take place within the 8,589-acre Kickapoo Valley Reserve (KVR), which boasts some of the hilliest terrain in the Driftless Region of southwestern Wisconsin.
Race proceeds will benefit the Education Program at the KVR, which offers unique hands-on environmental learning opportunities to students of all ages. We provide an opportunity for students to explore an outdoor classroom and learn-by-doing in a wide range of subjects from natural history and science to team building and outdoor adventure. In 2016, the Education & Events Program at the Reserve served over 7,000 local and regional students and community members.
