Join River Action for the annual Taming of the Slough Adventure Triathlon this fall to paddle, mountain bike, and run your way to the top. This year’s Taming of the Slough will take place in downtown Moline. The route takes you through the Sylvan Slough by kayak or canoe, then through one of the Quad Cities excellend singletrack mountain bike trails on Sylvan Island, and finishes with a two mile run alon Arsenal Island’s riverfront. Complete individually or form a team to Tame the Slough!

Tune Up is a series of training sessions open to Taming of the Slough racers and the general public. Meet at the foot of 17th Street outside of the Bass Street YMCA in downtown Moline. Sylvan Island mountain bike course will be very similar to the race day setup.
