Local competitors do well at Wolfman
space
Local competitors posed excellent results at the 24th annual Wolfman Triathlon, a one-of-a-kind mix of whitewater kayaking, mountain biking and trail running that take places every fall along the Wolf river.

Over its two-plus decades the event has grown from a test of endurance into a two-day festival of fun, headquartered at the Gardner Dam Boy Scout Camp with music, a pig roast, food trucks and more.

The event, while bringing athletes and support teams to the area for training and competition, provides more benefits to the area as well, with volunteers from local organizations key to making sure all facets run smoothly, and in turn receiving donations from the Wolfman.

Top finishers overall were John Holtan, 44, of Minneapolis, with a elapsed time of 1:54:04, and Kim Heintz, 37, of McHenry, 2:27:19.

That included a three-mile whitewater paddle; 13-mile mountain bike ride; and 3.5 mile rugged trail run.

Local athletes swept the podium in the age 15-19 female division, with Hannah Thom, Deerbrook, first, 3:06:56; Adie Smith, Gleason, second, 3:14:12; and Haley Thom, Deerbrook, third, 3:29:02.

And Beth Wagner and Chris Scholtz, both Gleason, won the tandem mix with a total time of 4:27:47. Dan Smith and Sam Eddy, both Gleason, took fifth in tandem male with an elapsed time of 5:34:16.

Other local results follow:

Males 30-39:

Curt Parsons, Pickerel, 11th, 2:22:14; Josh Zalewski, Antigo, 21th, 2:34:39; and Jordan Sharon, Antigo, 37th, 3:11:20.

Females, 30-39:

Susan Slominski, Antigo, fourth, 3:30:05.

Males, 40-49:

Dan Bastle, Pickerel, eighth, 2:25:11; Corey Slominski, Antigo, ninth, 2:27:04; Brian Sharon, Antigo, 22th, 2:48;51.

Males, 50-59:

Eric Roller, Antigo, seventh, 2:35:07; Jim Eisenman, White Lake, 22th, 3:03;38; Lloyd Larsen, White Lake, 26th, 3:28;46.

Just under 200 racers competed.

Since 2011, when the Wolfman became a nonprofit organization, it has contributed to over 24 nonprofit organizations. In addition, during the weekend alone, about 2,487 participants have visited, jumping to 4,200 people when family and friends are included.
