Stoneman, Iron Abe & Route 66 Half Information

Greetings triathletes,

We wanted to remind everyone about the July 30th triathlons at Lake Springfield.

On that day we will be hosting the Stoneman Sprint, Iron Abe Olympic and Route 66 Half Iron.

Based on record turnouts for April and June we expect record racers for July and have made preparations for your event.

Here is a summary of what you get for tri’ing:

Superior race management

Historic and unique venue with a swim under Lindsey bridge

On course support with SAG vehicle from Friendly Chevrolet, with a Wheelfast Bike shop mechanic on board

On course medical support from Springfield Clinic doctors

Physiotherapy Professionals will be on site to tend to your issues before and after the event

Finisher medals for all distances. (Yes, Stoneman triathletes will get a Finisher Medal!)

New medal design for Iron Abe and Route 66 Half Iron

All Half Iron racers get race socks and a finisher medal, plus a custom gender specific technical shirt & a custom poster, both with your name on it

Thanks to Aaron Crowder and Company for tons of ice and to Friendly Chevrolet for the use of their snow cone machine! Thanks to these sponsors, there’ll be snow cones for anyone who wants one, spectators included

That covers it so far….

Keep aware of continuing developments and check out the website for more details and registration links.

We also invite everyone to the inaugural Dan Adair MD, Memorial Triathlon on August 13th at the YMCA west and the Sage City Sprint Triathlon on August 28 at the Monticello Aquatic Center.

Both offer pool swims and great bike rides with run courses on bike paths, so no cars to worry about.

Registration is open for both events and the Sage City has a collegiate discount for all current students.

Memorial Sportscare, Springfield Clinic Orthopedic Group and Kirby Medical Center have pulled out all the stops for these first time events.

So much SWAG to discuss but you need to come see it all on display at the July triathlons.

Finisher Medals for all triathletes in both August events.

Best of luck with your training and tri just a little bit harder. thnx
