Williamstown Badgers Autumn Lake Tri/Du/AB

Autumn Lake Tri Testimonials

Today, I competed in the Autumn Lake Triathlon hosted by the Williamstown Badgers Triathlon Club.  This was an A++ race in every way.

Stephen del Monte

The lake is heaven and running next to the grape vines is something out of a book.  Definitely will sign up next year.

It was obvious that careful thought and consideration was given to even the smallest details.

From a participant’s perspective, a flawless event.  Hard to believe it was the first one.

Awesome inaugural event!  The atmosphere was great.  The volunteers were great.  The event was safe, fun, and challenging.  Loved it!

The entire day went so smoothly and was so well organized.  Seemed like the 10th year of the event, not the first.  Congratulations!

Autumn Lake Tri today was fantastic.  You would never know this was an inaugural event.  The set up was great, the vibe was great, and the volunteers were top notch!

I will certainly enter this race again as the Badgers have produced a race from the athlete’s point of view.

This was their inaugural event, but you wouldn’t know it.  It was very well organized, the venue was beautiful, and they had amazing volunteers.

In 20 years of competing I can say this was the best first time race.

Charity Partner: 

We are thrilled to have Bianca's Kids as our charity partner for the 2021 Williamstown Badgers Autumn Lake Triathlon.  At Bianca's Kids, their mission is simple-to grant wishes to children in need.  If a child has been displaced by the foster system, struck by tragedy, or affected by disability, then he/she is on of Bianca's Kids.  In the hardest of times, we just want to be a small reminder of how loved they truly are.  That's why every wish counts. 

We will be donating one third of the profit from the Autumn Lake Triathlon to Bianca's Kids.  You will have the option to make an additional donation to Bianca's Kids as you go through the registration process.  You can learn more about Bianca's Kids at their website https://biancaskids.org
