Enjoy a "jewel" of a course touring the best of beautiful Grinnell, Iowa. The course is relatively flat and fast with a few rolling hills - 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.
