Boulder Junction is proud to be a premier destination for winter silent sports enthusiasts and we are excited to bring to you our 2nd Annual Forest Frenzy Winter Triathlon, the only outdoor winter triathlon in the state of Wisconsin.

Forest Frenzy is staged at historic Camp Manito-wish YMCA with race headquarters at the Manito-wish Leadership Center, a beautiful Northwoods lodge with fireplace overlooking Boulder Lake.

This fun endurance event features a 7.5-kilometer cross-country ski (classic or skate) course, 5-kilometer snowshoe loop and 7.5-kilometer fat tire bike course all tucked in the woods of the Northern Highland-American Legion State Forest.

Forest Frenzy courses are not your typical winter races trails. These trails are tucked in the tall trees beginning at Camp Manito-wish YMCA and leading into the Northern Highland-American Legion State Forest. We have widened existing trails to accommodate the race. You will find that this is a challenging wilderness endurance event with some tight turns and narrow areas. Some of the course does cross other public use trails.
