The Party!

The triathlon’s weekend headquarters is located at the Gardner Dam Boy Scout Camp. The weekend reflects a festival atmosphere with onsite camping, a large tent for all the festivities, volunteer group booths, and outdoor adventure equipment vendors all of which will be available all weekend long.

Throughout the weekend there will be music, plenty of food between our pig roast and food trucks and the drink will pour!  There will be a variety of Hinterland beer and wine for sale so make sure you have your "Over 21" wristband and a couple extra bucks for Friday evening as well as Saturday for the after-party. You must have an "Over 21" wristband to drink alcohol at Gardner Dam Boy Scout Camp.

For Saturday's festivities, all participants will receive a badge for entry to the pig roast and 2 free drinks!  Extra meal wristbands will be available for friends and family. $5.00 kids, $10.00 adults.  Please pick these up Friday evening at registration as there are a limited number available.  You must have a badge/wristband to partake in the food.  Also, don't forget your lawn chair! 

Our locally prepared pig roast will be served from 1-3 PM with awards and door prizes starting at 3 PM. We have some pretty awesome prizes this year so stay tuned!

We welcome back Milky Way Coffee Company and more food truck vendors are in the works so be sure to watch for updates!  We guarantee you will not walk away from the weekend hungry as they all will be serving up some fantastic food starting Friday evening throughout the weekend! 

Note:  Although we adore our pets, we encourage racers to leave your furry friends at home. If it is necessary to bring them to Gardner Dam, they will need to be on leash at all times and owners MUST cleanup after their pets. 


Join us in the Wolfman Big Ass Tent (BAT) both Friday evening and Saturday for musical entertainment. Friday music and beer begins to flow at 5:00 p.m. and Saturday the music begins at 1:00 p.m. 2022 entertainment to be announced soon.  In 2021 our first musician was Tuck Pence and our 2021 headliner was Miles Over Mountain.
