For many years Door County has been well known for things like cherries, pancakes, fish boils and sunsets. It is an extremely popular choice for families on vacation looking to relax, indulge, and enjoy some natural beauty. However, over the last few years, Door County has become a Mecca of sorts for a group of people on the opposite side of the tourist spectrum: the extreme athlete.

Door County’s roads, trails and beaches play host to a growing number of outdoor athletic events each year, including the Door County Triathlon, Half Marathon, the Century Ride (100-mile bike ride), and the Fall 50 (50-mile run). Feedback from participants has been overwhelmingly positive for all events and reflects the growing interest in Door County as a playing field for these activities.
