The swim will take place on Middlefork Reservoir.


The 13.4 mile bike course will leave the reservoir and follow Reid Parkway passing Reid Hospital and cross IN-27. From there it will go north under I-70 and loop around on county roads and return the same way to the reservoir.


The 3.1 mile run will leave Middle Fork Reservoir, wind through the surrounding streets and then return to the Reservoir for the finish. There will be aid-stations at miles 1 and 2 stocked with water, Gatorade and volunteers!

    My 15yo son Matt Head evidently came in 7th or 8th place overall in the sprint race. We would like to be able to view final results but are unable to find them online, can you help us out? He had to leave prior to the award ceremony and final posting for results.

    My friend and I are wanting to participate in a triathlon, but we have never done one before. If we started training now (mid August), would this sprint triathlon be an okay one to start with, or would anyone recommend something else? We are both very interested in participating and dedicated to training for it, but wanted to see if anyone had any different recommendations for us.

    Hi Cara! Thanks for showing interest and also for committing to yourself to get in shape for the event!

    Short answer – probably. Depends on your starting point. We always talk about incrementing in lengths of no larger than 10% a week. So, regardless of the race, always find the distance that you want to do then build up to it. The main mistake that people do is try to start doing the whole distance “tomorrow” and then trying to get faster for that distance all year. You want to work your way up to the distance first and then work on speed (if that’s an interest). Otherwise there’s a good chance you’ll burn yourself out.

    For more information, check out our podcast. Session 19 and session 20 might be of use.

    Thank you so much! The information you provided is very helpful. Hopefully everything will work out well so that participating will become a reality! Can’t wait!

    Not a problem! If you have any more questions, feel free to ask!
