Heart of America Triathlon News

tribyknightTwo races join this season’s Heart of America roster. First up is TriByKnight in Waverly on May 5.

TriByKnight was the first tri in the Waverly area and, much like the CyMan Triathlon later this season, the entire event is coordinated by college students.Co-directors, Heather Zajicek, Sheila Kittleson, and Carrie Tysdahl are all students at Wartburg College.

 2018 marks the 7th running of TriByKnight. For such a relatively young race, Heart of America Director Alex Syhlman says it is one of the most popular early-season events in the area. It’s a USAT-sanctioned sprint distance race (300-yard swim, 15-mile bike, 5K run), held entirely on the Wartburg College campus.

Schuldt Natatorium

The swim is a time-trial pool start in the Schuldt Natatorium, a state-of-the-art facility that serves both the college and the Waverly community. Bike and run legs follow courses around the college campus.

The race website declares TriByKnight is perfect for those just getting started in the sport. The temperature-controlled, indoor swim should be particularly attractive to beginners.

As of this writing, registration is still open at Check-in and transition open at 6:30am on May 5.

Contact the race directors at 319-352-8717 with any questions, or consult the TriByKnight website at for more information.
