For the adventure-lover who wants a new fitness challenge, this is the perfect event! This isn’t your typical triathlon; it includes running, sandboarding and fat-biking in the Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park. Mark your calendars for Saturday, November 14, 2015. Each four-person team has to complete a loop which starts with fat-biking through some soft sand and even pushing it up some inclines before dropping it off at the top of a small dune. The racers will then climb to the top of a large sand dune, strap on a sandboard and carve (or crash) to the bottom of the dune, where they ditch the board and climb, run or walk out the rest of the way to the finish line, where the next team member will start the loop. Each team has to go a total of six miles in soft sand. One Dunesday participant from 2014, Matthew Morawetz, said “It was the hardest and most fun event that I’ve ever done!” Morawetz has also participated in the Tough Mudder and Spartan races.
