Check out for all the details.   Highlights include new transition area with more stable bike racks, think IM Canada. Handmade real Stone awards for Stoneman Overalls and slate age group awards. Iron Abe features handmade metal awards by a local artisan and all awards are presented by Mr. Lincoln himself.  All finishers receive a race specific Finishers glass, water bottle and Sno Cone when you cross the Finish Line. Both races offer commemorative  bib and frame stickers, custom gender specific SoftStyle shirts, great door prizes inducing XTERRA wetsuits, $250 Scheels gift  card, a Specialized TT aero helmet from Country Financial and cowbells for all the kids. Our main Sponsor PhysioTherapy Professional, who are active triathletes, will be on site working with SIU Healthcare to make your race comfortable and safe. There will be doctors on all parts of the course lead by a past member of the Chicago Marathon medical team. We take safety very seriously and you will see it on race day. The bike is a lake to lake route and the run is on Westlake Drive which will be closed to traffic.   We expect record numbers so please visit the website and also check out for other upcoming events in August at the New Salem State Historic Site,  September at Oak Run Illinois and the November Inaugural Abe’s Trail Trek in New Salem.   Remember, our events are hosted and managed by triathletes and ultra-runners, not big name  profiteers.Come check us out.
