Camp Courageous Sprint Triathlon
For 2017 the Camp Courageous Sprint Triathlon will be held in Cedar Rapids, Iowa! That’s right. In and around the placid, sand filtered waters (they’re cold and/or frozen right now) of the Prairie Park Fishery in SE Cedar Rapids! This beautiful 65 acre lake is in SE Cedar Rapids just off of Otis Road.
This sprint triathlon will have a 500 yard out and back swim in the unusually clear (scuba clubs train there) waters of the lake. There are great vantage points for spectators. Follow that swim with a 15 mile bike course mixing the flats of Otis Road with the challenging hills (on the way up!) of 44th Street SE as well as Memorial Drive. Then back to the park for two loops on the fast, flat paved trail surrounding the lake for the 5K run
