Course Details

The Route 66 Half Distance Triathlon includes a 1.2 mile swim under the arches of Historic Lindsay Bridge, a 56 mile bike on the “Old Route 66” road and a 13.1 mile run on scenic, shaded lake roads. Highlights include a lake to lake bike course past picturesque Lincoln Memorial Gardens with sweeping turns and fast straightaways on “Old Route 66”. Enjoy beautiful vistas, twisting curves and gentle hills around Lake Sangchris State Park before heading back to begin your run on shaded lake roads with island views. Your tour will take you down secluded lake roads and open prairies with crowd support and cooling stations along the route. When the course takes you across the Lindsay Bridge, you’ll know you’re close to your goal as you run the final quarter mile to the finish line.
