3 Disciplines Illinois State Triathlon Championships
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.
At the end you can count on a post race experience with a complimentary beer from JT's along with some great post race BBQ
