The 9th Annual Litchfield Triathlou is back and ready to help you smash your best performance during the peak season for racing!

We are pumped to return the Litchfield Triathlou Half Distance Triathlon again this year! In 2017 we added the Half and it was a hit! We are excited to return it for an even bigger and better 2nd running!

Now you better believe you will be getting some EPIC 2018 Official Litchfield Triathlou SWAG! By now there are many of you collecting our famous hoodies as they provide comfort, warmth, and style all in one. All Triathlou athletes will get the Triathlou hoodie! Aside from the hoodie we will hook you up with a very memorable finisher medal, post race lunch, free photos, and a race experience you’ll never forget! Swimming in Lake Lou Yaeger is the best OWS you will have in the midwest. There really is no comparison to this large beach with pristine flat racing water. The bike course is flat and fast with some great curves to keep you entertained the whole ride. Both the 5k, 10k, and Half runs see very honest mile paces with plenty of flats, and a couple hills throughout. You want freebies, speed, and camaraderie-you better get to the 9th Annual Litchfield Triathlou Triathlons!

Swim: The swim course is a small triangle for the sprint, and a large triangle for the olympic. The half will swim the large triangle, and then the small one for a full 1.2 Miles. The small triangle will be marked with red buoys, and the large with green buoys. Click to View

Bike: The bike course is an out and back loop (1 Loop=Sprint, 2 Loops=Olympic, 4 Loops=Half), and they are fast, curvy, and fun. Traffic is minimal and local law enforcement helps a ton! Click to View

Run: The run course is also out and back, and it has a couple hills on it to keep you honest. We have seen some blazing times, and most people tend to hit their season best on this route! The half will do two loops turning around just a tad after the OLY turn around.  Click to View
