microMussel Super-Sprint Triathlon

Friday, July 14, 2017 - 7:00 pm
100 yard swim - 0.6 mile bike - 0.2 mile run (or thereabouts)
In 2010, Musselman first staged microMussel (µMussel because we're into tiny), a Super-Sprint triathlon the likes of which you'd not seen before. Returning in 2017 and again held Friday evening, µMussel features an absurdly short distances over a closed, spectator-friendly course through Geneva's Lakefront Park.

Participants must ride an unmodified children's tricycle (with or without bell) or Big Wheels for the bike portion. A panel of biased and bribed judges reserves the right to disqualify egregious entries.

  • Register during online registration as an add-on to your race registration
  • Cost is $15.
  • Cash awards for the first finisher and best costume.
Swim (100 yards) (or so)

This is a mass start in waist deep water (and never deeper!) Splash about and a few seconds later, if all goes well, you'll come ashore at the boat launch.

Bike (0.6 miles) (roughly)

What to wear? That's the big question. Don't think about it too long, because you've only got a single loop of Lakefront Park to spin your pedals.

Behold the interactive map.

Run (0.2 miles) (give or take)

Ditch the bike and dash for the finish line, oxygen-starved and cramping like there's no tomorrow. Because in this race, there isn't.
