Click to go to the web site for the Illinois Triathlon Championship in Mahomet, Illinois

Event capped at 600 first year.

A park built for multi-sport is what Lake of the woods is all about. We looked at several venues in and around the Champaign area and this was the overwhelming favorite. A no motor, manmade lake surrounded by beautifully kept park grounds and golf course.

The bike course will take you out on slightly rolling farm roads with less than a dozen houses along the route so roads will be lightly travelled. The swim in the lake will be flat, and a two loop affair for the long course. The run will come to be one of the best run courses in the state encompassing the entire park including a run through the covered bridge, in and around the botanical gardens before finishing next to the lake where the post race party will await your finish. This all comes with being minutes from the University of Illinois where you can catch the game with Penn State on Saturday.

Course Description
The swim in a small, no motor, man made lake.

The bike course will take you around the farm country of Mahomet on a rolling, lightly travelled course

The run course is the gem, completely enclosed inside the Lake of the woods park.
