BOULDER JUNCTION - Despite rain and cold temperatures Saturday, about 250 people braved the weather for the 5th annual White Deer Triathlon.
The race started with a 3 kilometer paddle across Boulder lake, followed by a 22 kilometer bike, and finally a 6 kilometer run from Camp Manitowish to the Boulder Junction Community Center.
Race organizer Theresa Smith said the race this year was very different from year's past.
"They said it's been the most challenging that they've done, if they've done all five years of the White Deer Triathlon," said Smith. "So we're very proud of everyone that's finished."
Cherie Sanderson has participated all five years. She said not even rain can put a damper on her favorite race of the year.
"It's such a fun race that even in the rain, it's still fun," said Sanderson. "So people that see this and want to think about doing it next year, next year will be nice."
Over 60 volunteers made this race possible. The sixth annual White Deer Triathlon will be May 17, 2020.
