A note from event organizers: We are deeply saddened by the passing of 59-year-old Dr. Scott Beatse during the Lake Mills Triathlon on Sunday, June 2. Beatse, a physician at Aurora Health Center in Elkhorn with a specialty in OB-GYN, received medical attention during the swim portion of the sprint-distance event, but authorities say he was later pronounced deceased at Fort Atkinson Memorial hospital.

The Race Day Events family would like to extend our heartfelt condolences to Scott’s family, friends and those closest with him. There are no words to describe this loss. Please join us in observing a moment of silence in Scott’s honor prior to Race Start at the remainder of this season’s Wisconsin Tri Series events.
