The Bozeman area, renowned for hosting organized events for every sport and ability level, also provides for the true fitness masochist. Enter the Madison Trifecta: a marathon, duathlon, and triathlon, all rolled into one heart-pumping summer season. At 9,000 feet, the Madison Marathon is the highest-elevation road marathon in the country. The Madison Duathlon consists of a 14-mile bike ride and a 6-mile run. The piece de resistance is the Madison Triathlon—only those able to complete the 1,200-yard swim, 23-mile bike ride, and 6-mile run can claim the title of Hardcore Madison Triathlete. And if you tick off all three? Stand tall and scream, “I HAVE THE POWER!” Check out themadisonmarathon.com for more details and each year's specific dates.
