Crofton Dam Race is July 30 at Lewis and Clark SRA

Registration is open for the Crofton Dam Race 2022, which will be July 30 at Lewis and Clark State Recreation Area.

Choose your adventure between three events: a sprint triathlon with kayaking instead of swimming, a half-marathon, or a 12-mile bike race.

The Crofton Dam Race, which is open to athletes of all experience levels, will help raise funds for a new hike-bike trail at the SRA.

• The Crofton Dam Race triathlon includes a 1.5-mile kayak paddle across the lake, a 5K run through the Weigand campground and a 12-mile bike ride along the rolling hills overlooking the lake, ending in Crofton. Competition is in team, individual and youth divisions. Participants must be at least 14 years of age.

• Crofton’s Dam Bike Race is a 12-mile ride in the hills of the Weigand area.

• Crofton’s Dam Half Marathon is a 13.1-mile race along the lake.

Plan to stick around the finish line in Crofton for a party with food and music.
