Now you better believe you will be getting some EPIC 2018 Official Litchfield Triathlou SWAG! By now there are many of you collecting our famous hoodies as they provide comfort, warmth, and style all in one. All Triathlou athletes will get the Triathlou hoodie! Aside from the hoodie we will hook you up with a very memorable finisher medal, post race lunch, free photos, and a race experience you'll never forget! Swimming in Lake Lou Yaeger is the best OWS you will have in the midwest. There really is no comparison to this large beach with pristine flat racing water. The bike course is flat and fast with some great curves to keep you entertained the whole ride. Both the 5k, 10k, and Half runs see very honest mile paces with plenty of flats, and a couple hills throughout. You want freebies, speed, and camaraderie-you better get to the 9th Annual Litchfield Triathlou Triathlons!
