The 2013 multisport national championship season gets an early start with the USA Triathlon Winter Triathlon National Championships slated for Sunday at the Powderhound Winter Triathlon in Butte, Mont.
Featuring a 5-kilometer trail run, 10-kilometer bike and 5-kilometer Nordic ski - all on snow - Winter Nationals returns to the Powderhound Winter Triathlon and Homestake Lodge for the second straight year. The race is slated to begin at 10 a.m. Mountain.
A year ago, Mike Wolfe (Helena, Mont.) and Rebecca Dussault (Gunnison, Colo.) were victorious in near-perfect conditions to earn the overall wins at Winter Nationals.
