Springfield, Il 62711

Race day packet pickup is from 6:00am – 7:30 am @ Kerasotes YMCA

Racers must show their PHOTO ID and if applicable their USAT membership card or pay the one-day USAT fee of $15. The youth fee is $10 and is for an annual USAT membership.

A Mandatory Pre-Race meeting is scheduled 15 minutes before the start of each race (poolside 7:15 and 8:15 am)

Race Identification

Packets will contain 2 separate race numbers.

The sticker number is to be attached to the bike frame. This number will be utilized for race identification and to allow the removal of your bike from the transition area.

The bib number should be pinned to your clothing or worn on a race number belt during the bike and run portion. It is mandatory on the run course.

Listening Devices

Based on USAT rules, no listening devices will be permitted on the course. While these may aid your training, they make you and others around you unsafe on race day. You will be disqualified if you choose to ignore this rule. Safety of everyone on the course is our #1 goal. Keep your tunes for training. NO EXCEPTIONS, NO DEBATES, NO REFUNDS.

FYI, if you are injured during the event, a listening device cancels any USAT insurance claim.

Timing Chips

Timing Chips will be distributed beginning Sunday at 7:00 am poolside for the first event. Once you get a chip, you cannot cross the timing mats near the pool. Be aware of this or you could mess up everyone’s times.

Volunteers will remove Timing Chips immediately after you cross the finish line. If your chip is not returned, you will be charged for it.

Race Day Street Closures

Although residents will be allowed on Iles Avenue, the section of Iles between Lenhart Rd. and Archer Elevator Road to the Sangamon Valley Bike Trail will be closed by the Springfield Police Department. 

Race Day Traffic Control

Course Notes

The non competitive racers will follow the Yellow arrows and signs.

The bike course is largely open to traffic. All intersections will have traffic control with race marshals and/or police, but racers should pay attention to their surroundings and race accordingly. If in question, follow police directions; don’t trust the traffic.

The Bike course proceeds in a clockwise loop and is open to traffic. 

The run course is mainly closed. It is closed once you are on the trail.  You will run inside the coned lane on Iles and you will run on the left.  Once you are on the bike path please run on the right to maintain the traffic flow with the non racing public. You will turn around at the Yellow A frame sign for non competitive runners or the Orange A frame sign for competetive runners. When you return to Iles from the bike path please run on the left to Finish. 

Please review both the bike and run course routes on the website map. You are expected to know the courses; it is not the responsibility of the volunteers or police.


Water and Hammer Nutrition’s HEED will be available at the Start, in Transition, at the Finish and at the hydration stations.

The non competiitive runners have no water on the course due to the short distance. 

The competitive runners have water at mile .9 and 2.2. 

Restrooms are located in the commons area and transition area. There are no on-course facilities due to the relatively short distances.
