More than 100 racers will brave the cold in the 2nd annual Iceman Triathlon in Grand Forks this weekend.

The race will be in four sections: cross country skiing, biking, running, and at the end, a sled.

Organizers say the entire course take around two hours to complete and that the cold will be the biggest challenge. They say it's fun for non-racers to watch.

"If you just want to come out and take a look, come see what it's all about, we'll have a lot of places to watch on the Greenway. There will be a lot people and 125 racers," Iceman Organizer Joel Larson.

The race will start and end at Lincoln Drive Park. Start time is 9 a.m. Saturday.
