Description:

The Stovepipe Sprint Triathlon will take place on June 14, 2014, at 8:00 am and consists of a 500 yard swim in a private lake, an 13 mile bike ride on a rolling country road and a 3.1 mile run through Lincoln’s New Salem State Historic Site and down the main-street of an 1800’s pioneer village. 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 O'Connor is the race director and can be reached at (217) 632-4482 or by email here triharderpromotions@gmail.com .

Triathletes will challenge themselves with an open water wave start, out and back swim, starting and finishing at a gently slopping boat ramp. After a short distance to the transition area, athletes will take off on an 13 mile bike ride on country roads surrounded by rolling prairies and flat straight-aways. Upon completing the scenic bike course, athletes will finish with a hilly run through Lincoln’s New Salem State Historic Site. Athletes will run through the same pioneer village Abraham Lincoln called home for six years of his life. Most all of the run course within Lincoln’s New Salem will be shaded by large mature oak and maple trees. The Stovepipe Sprint Triathlon will finish in the picnic area located within Lincoln’s New Salem State Historic Site. The post race party will take place in the picnic area. Racers should tune to 1610 am for the latest race information. Post race showers will be available at the New Salem Site campgrounds.
