Border Wars Half Distance Triathlon is back and at a new venue in beautiful Litchfield, Illinois on Lake Lou Yaeger! This spot has hosted the Litchfield Triathlou for 12 years, and now it will host a stand alone half distance triathlon on October 2, 2022. Participants can choose to race the triathlon doing the 1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike, and 13.1 mile run, or they can choose to race the aqua bike which consists of a 1.2 mile swim followed by a 56 mile bike. Participants should expect wetsuit legal water racing a two loop swim course along the beautiful Yaeger beach. The bike course is flat and fast overall racing through the county roads. The run is a 2 loop course running on rural county streets and along side some of Litchfield residential areas. As always Litchfield is a perfect spot to tailgate and enjoy the day for family, friends, and competitors once done pouring it all out on the course. Border Wars Half in Litchfield is a small town race with small town vibes that we absolutely love. Racing has become so much about fluff, and we all keep paying outrageous costs to keep the fluff coming. Border Wars Tri is back after 6 years to break what has become the new norm. The race is back to prove a strategically planned out locally owned triathlon event can be done well & kept affordable. We are here keep our sport affordable, & to help you have an absolute blast laying it all out while racing just under 71 miles of swimming, biking, and running 😉.
