Iron Girl Triathlon
Back to News
On Sunday, August 13, 2017, the Iron Girl Triathlon will take place inside and around Prairie Springs Park. The swim and run courses will be held entirely within the park; however, the bike course will take athletes outside of the park and onto local roads.
Highway 165, between Corporate Drive and County Highway H, will be closed to through traffic from approximately 6:00 a.m. to noon on August 13.
The bike route will take athletes west on Highway 165 out of Prairie Springs Park; north on the East I-94 Frontage Road; west under the interstate on County Highway C; and south on the West I-94 Frontage Road to State Highway 165. At this point, bikers will make a U-turn and return to the park in roughly the reverse direction.
Pleasant Prairie police officers and local volunteers will be staffing intersections along the route for the safety of athletes, spectators, and travelers. Detour routes will be marked.
In many communities that host larger race events, local residents will line the racecourse to cheer on and encourage athletes. You are invited to do the same during our local triathlons to help welcome these visitors to our community and encourage these athletes. To learn more, please visit Iron Girl.com.
The Village would like to thank those of you who come out to cheer on our athletes. The Village would also like to thank drivers in advance for their patience and consideration with the road closure during the Iron Girl Triathlon.
