Description:

2014 Pioneer Sprint Triathlon:


The Pioneer Sprint Triathlon will begin April 26, 2014 at 12:45 for paratriathletes and 1:00 pm for age groupers and offers a 300 yard swim in the heated indoor PORTA pool, a beautiful 13 mile bike ride on a rolling and flat prairie road and the chance to run 3.1 miles through picturesque Petersburg. The run will take you past century old architectural gems, up and down the streets of Petersburg and through a historic cemetery. All ages are welcome and Clydesdales, Athenas and teams are encouraged to enter. An awards ceremony will follow after the last runner crosses the finish line. Steve OConnor is the race director and can be reached by email at triharderpromotions@gmail.com.

As a USAT Parafriendly Triathlon we will now  be hosting male and female paratriathletes in both wheelchair and ambulatory divisions starting at 12:45am.

When you finish the swim you can step into the  locker rooms to dry off and change into bike and run clothes.

Post race dinner of chicken and noodles, green beans and dessert will be provided to all racers.

Additional dinner tickets should be ordered in advance for $6 a person on line or on race day.

Post race showers will be available at the PORTA pool. Racers should tune to 1610 am for the latest race information.
