 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 a 24.8 mile bike ride on country roads surrounded by rolling prairies and flat straight-aways. Upon completing the scenic and challenging 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 Railsplitter Triathlon will finish in the picnic area located within Lincoln’s New Salem State Historic Site. Racers should tune to 1610 am for the latest race information. Post race showers will be available at the New Salem Site campgrounds. The post race party will take place in the pinic area.
