The TriByKnight Triathlon in Waverly, IA, will begin at 9 a.m. Saturday, May 5th, 2018. The event will consist of an indoor 300-yard swim, 15-mile bike ride and 5K run. This triathlon boasts an INDOOR swim, which new triathletes are sure to appreciate.
- The 300 yard swim will be held in the Wartburg-Waverly Sports & Wellness Natatorium, with the time trial start beginning at 9 a.m. The W pool is a six-lane pool filled with warm clean water. It is supervised by lifeguards and guaranteed to be free from the things lurking beneath most open-water swims. Swimmers will share a single start point and will begin their swim in standard intervals. Participants will swim up and back in each lane, working their way across the pool in serpentine fashion, swimming a total of 300 yards and exit at a single exit point.
- The 15-mile bike ride will be a loop course. The course gently rolls out into scenic and friendly Midwest farm country. Roads will be open to traffic, but volunteers and law enforcement will assist with traffic direction.
- The run course is a 5K run consisting of three loops. Each loop includes a short run on the track and finishes at the 50-yard line in Walston-Hoover Stadium. There will be one aid station on the west side of the stadium. Water and Powerade will be provided. Here's a link to the swim, bike & run maps :
