I regret to inform you that we have decided to no longer host the “Blackhawk Challenge Triathlon / Duathlon”. As many of you are aware we are a non-profit organization that hosts this event as a fundraiser for the Prairie Wrestling Club. Our community, volunteers, and wrestlers truly enjoyed having the opportunity to put on a great race each and every year but due to financial reasons we can no longer support this fundraising event.
We hoped during the term of 5 years we could get more and more athletes to participate creating an atmosphere where the event could sustain and finance itself.
Over the past (5) years we have leaned heavily on our sponsors to provide financial support to allow us to generate some profit from this event. The money we were able to raise from this event went to great use providing our children with the opportunity to attend some wrestling camps and development of our athletes by providing additional training by some nationally known athletes over the years.
We truly do appreciate everyone who was able to participate, volunteer, and sponsor this event.

The Prairie Du Chien Wrestling Club and all members of the Blackhawk Challenge would like to issue a sincere "Thank You" to the Mayo Clinic, Cabela's Inc., Universal Forest Products, and the George Family Foundation for electing our organization as one of your 2014 sponsorship recipients
