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 fast and all throughout the county roads…very enjoyable ride. Both the 5k, 10k, and Half runs see very honest mile paces with plenty of flats for you to roll on. You want freebies, speed, and camaraderie-you better get to the 9th Annual Litchfield Triathlou Triathlons!

Event Information

Learn More about the Litchfield Triathlon

Swim: The swim course is a small rectangle for the sprint (click to view), and 2 of the large rectangles for the half (click to view). The olympic will swim the small rectangle, and then the large one for a full .9 Miles. The small rectangle will be marked with red buoys, and the large with green buoys.

Bike: The bike course is an out and back course. The sprint (click to view) will be out 6.5 miles, and back. The olympic (click to view) will be out 12.4 and back. Then the half distance (click to view) will be out 14.5, back 13.5 (about 1 mile from transition you turn around) and then out to the 14.5 mark (13.5 from the second turn around), and then all the way back to transition.

Run: The run course is also out and back. We think athletes will LOVE this years run course as it eliminates hills…even into the finish. The sprint (click to view) will go out 1.55 and then flip. The olympic (click to view) will go out to the 3.1 mile mark, and then return. The half (click to view) will go out 3.3 miles, then return just outside the entry to transition area, and then repeat that loop one more time.
