Crofton’s Dam Race

July 29, 2023

Kayak. Run. Bike. Runners, bikers and kayakers have discovered a new kind of race along the shores of Lewis & Clark Lake in Northeast Nebraska. Choose your adventure between three events: A sprint triathlon with kayaking instead of swimming, a half marathon or 12-mile bike race. Participants must be 14 years or older. The Triathlon can be done individually on in teams.

Triathlon – Kayak 1.5 miles on Lewis and Clark Lake, run 5K through the Weigand campground and bike 12 miles along the rolling hills overlooking the lake.

Bike Race – It’s less of a race and more like a 12-mile scenic ride. The real reward is dominating the hills.

Half Marathon – 13.1 miles along the scenic Lewis and Clark Lake

Each entry receives a t-shirt, bib and meal following the race. Register early for the best price.

The Crofton Dam Race 2023 is open for registrations! Funds from the  Crofton Dam Race committee are being used to help fund the development and construction of a hike bike trail at Lewis and Clark SRA.

Plan to stick around the finish line in Crofton for a party with food and music.

Kayaks are provided and medals will be awarded for winners of each age group.

Participants must be at least 14 years old.

Crofton’s Dam Race started in 2018 with a small group of volunteers in Crofton and the Lewis & Clark State Recreation Area. Athletes — ranging in all skill levels — have grown to love the mix of challenging terrain, picturesque views and small-town hospitality this race offers.
