Closest airport to the park is the Eastern Iowa Airport. It is located about 30 minutes from the race site.


Wave starts begin at 7:30 a.m. sharp. The course is an out-and-back swim from Pleasant Creek State Park swimming beach. Boats and safety personnel will be on the lake at all times. Wet suits will be allowed as per USA Triathlon rules.
