Lake Geode Challenge, an Olympic-distance triathlon in southeast Iowa, again will serve as a regional special qualifier race for USA Triathlon’s Midwest Region. USA Triathlon is the governing body for triathlon in the United States. The race, which has been sanctioned by USAT since it began in 1993, has been a special-qualifier race for the last two years. Top finishers at Lake Geode Challenge may qualify for the Age Group National Championship.
This year’s Lake Geode Challenge will begin at 7:30 a.m. Saturday, July 12, at Geode State Park in Danville, Iowa. The event starts with a 1.5-kilometer clockwise, out-and-back swim from the Lake Geode beach. The swim is followed by a 40-kilometer bike course that takes participants on a loop outside Geode State Park. The race concludes with a 10-kilometer run on asphalt roads throughout the park. Chip timing is used.
Prize money ($300, $200, $125, $75 and $50) will be awarded to the top five male and female finishers. Rick Buller Financial Services, LLC, also is sponsoring cash awards ($125, $75 and $50) to the top three male and top three female Masters (40+) finishers.
