Crofton Dam Race Registration Open, July 30 Event

CROFTON –Mark your calendar for Saturday, July 30 to take part in one of three events during the Crofton Dam Race this summer.

According to a release from the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission, registration is now open for the Crofton Dam Race which will be held at the Lewis and Clark State Recreation Area.

Participants will be able to choose their adventure between 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 as competitors 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 and Crofton’s Dam Half Marathon is a 13.1-mile race along the lake.

All are welcome to stick around on July 30 at the finish line in Crofton for a party with food and music.
