And… The Champions!

Twenty-eight winners of the 2011 Heart of America (HOA) Championship series will race for the Championship crown Sunday, Sept. 18 at the TriHawks Triathlon in Coralville.

All season, all athletes who participate in an HOA race get points for each race they do. At the end of the season, we recognize the top three overall point winners, top three masters, and first place in each age group.  The more you race, regardless to some extent, of where you place, the higher your potential standings.

Each HOA champ receives a commemorative T-shirt and the opportunity to race in the Champions wave at TriHawks on Sept. 18.

Free entries in HOA races in 2012 are the prize for the winners.

Participants of any age could claim the top prize, as times are age-adjusted according the formula used by U.S. Track & Field.
