Inagural running of what will soon be the highest quality non corporate Half Iron Triathlon in the Midwest. By incorporating historic Route 66 on the bike course this event will earn the distinction of being called the "Mother Half".
This Half Iron is targeted to both the seasoned triathlete training for a Full Iron or the new to Half racer wanting a value, family friendly destination event with much to do for the family.
The 1.2 mile swim takes place in Lake Springfield with more on course safety personell than any other half in hthe Midwest, the 56 mile bike utilizes beautiful rolling lake roads before heading onto the historic Old Route 66. After several miles on the "Mother Road bikers return to the Iron Abe course for awhile before venturing around Lake Sangchris. You will encounter fast, sweeping turns, rolling hills and great scenery along the course. The 13.1 mile run will be on the closed rolling lake Springfield roads with many lake vistas and breezes and plenty of shade. 
Very unique hand made awards and all racers get custom tech shirt, finisher medal and much, much more SWAG.  And of course our well known lunch which will be historic in nature and tied to Route 66 history. You asked for a high quality Midwest Half at a reasonable rate and we are providing it.
