Granite Man is happening as we speak! The weather surprised us–forecast called for rain all weekend, but we must’ve been in the eye of the storm for Saturday’s triathlon events and it turned out to be a really nice day. We hope you all enjoyed it. Sunday calls for cloudy all day, which sounds perfect for the 10 Mile Mountain Run, or the 5K Poker Run. Just come on out. It’ll be awesome!
Yes, you CAN register the day of, just please arrive during registration time: 7:00 am -8:30 am. We like to get things wrapped up so everyone heads down to the pre-race meeting.

Some PHOTOS from Saturday, June 10th, 2017:
Granite Man is an exciting off-road running, triathlon and duathlon event held at beautiful Applegate Lake, Oregon nestled at 2,000 feet in the Rogue River National Forest. Applegate Lake has been a long time Southern Oregon favorite for mountain bikers, trail runners and swimmers, but this is the only multi-sport competition held at this very special venue.
On Saturday we have the roller-coaster off-road Duathlon and the awesome off-road Triathlon. NEW this year: We’re adding a ROAD BIKE Sprint Triathlon to our line-up! We also have the kids Triathlon and Duathlon.
On Sunday we have the challenging USATF 10 Mile Mountain Run, a Poker Run, a Youth Scavenger Hunt.
DUAL DAY COMPETITION
If someone does the individual triathlon on Saturday and then 10M mountain run on Sunday, they have a chance to win the dual day award.
