Enjoy a "jewel" of a course touring the best of beautiful Grinnell, Iowa. The course features challenging hills on the bike and a relatively flat run course - looping around Grinnell College and along the countryside of Grinnell. It's great for spectators, too! Bring your family and have them cheer you along at multiple points on the course. This race uses chip timing.

This event will feature a 0.5 mile swim at the Grinnell College Natatorium, 12.4 mile bike path near Rock Creek State Park, and a 3.1 mile run through downtown Grinnell. Participate as an individual or a team of 3.

This event is sanctioned by the USA Triathlon organization. As a sanctioned event, athletes must follow specific rules. Click HERE to see a list of most commonly violated rules.
