TRI Clear Lake – Prettiest Race Around

Screenshot 2018-06-06 15.36.02The Clear Lake Chamber of Commerce, like Chambers, is charged with promoting the highlights of their community to attract businesses, residents, and tourists. The Clear Lake Chamber figures that one way to showcase the beauty of their area is to let triathletes experience it first hand, in the water, and along scenic byways.

A new race to the Heart of America series, TRI Clear Lake, on June 9, takes place in one of Iowa’s premier summer destinations. The 750 meter swim starts and ends at State Park Beach. The bike is 12.4 miles and winds south through scenic prairie and windmills. The 5K run ends in City Park, right in the middle of downtown.

The race  was founded in 2017 by Carrie Tysdahl and Jake Kopriva. Carrie did her first race in 2005, and became hooked immediately.

TRI Clear Lake is the only race in our series whose finish line is right in the middle of downtown. Race organizers promise a fun Finish Line party to celebrate completing the race!
