Each year, sporting events in Pleasant Prairie draw thousands of visitors to the community. “Pleasant Prairie has been incredibly fortunate to be able to host such amazing events,” explained Carol Willke, Director of Recreation for the Village. “We are very pleased to host the Pleasant Prairie Triathlon and to be a host site for Danskin. Not only do theses events provide a challenging and rewarding experience for the athletes, but they’ve been a great boost for our local businesses.” In past years, the estimated economic benefit (impact) of multisport events over the summer for area businesses has exceeded $1 million. The races also reach out to the broader community year after year through charitable giving components. In addition to the races mentioned above, the Village is planning to host two additional Pleasant Prairie Youth Triathlons on July 7 and August 25.
