Hickory Grove 2012 Date Changed

The Hickory Grove Triathlon, originally scheduled for the last Sunday in August, has a new date: Sunday, August 12, 2012.

Race co-director Alex Sylman says, “We are excited to announce the Hickory Grove Triathlon is moving to the second weekend in August.  You guys asked for a little more distance from HyVee Triathlon and we found an open weekend to move Hickory Grove Triathlon to.”

Alex and co-director Steve Karsjen have also been working with the Iowa DNR and Story County Conservation Service to address the abnormally high Ecoli levels the race saw in 2011.  Although the high 2011 levels are unusual for any time period at Hickory Grove it has been recommended that to move the date back two weeks in order to take advantage of historically better water quality.

Alex and Steve say this change will provide a better race experience for athletes participating in the 2012 Hickory Grove Triathlon.
