A Gladbrook-Reinbeck Dollars for Scholars (DFS) Event

Running Makes Cent$ 5K/Triathlon/Duathlon
July 2, 2016
Reinbeck, Iowa
Aquatic Center

A sprint triathlon/duathlon will be offered with the annual Running Makes Cents 5K Run/Walk in Reinbeck, Iowa. This is the perfect opportunity to participate in a triathlon/duathlon that is close to home and as competitive or non-competitive as each participant would like to be. Preregistration is required for the triathlon and duathlon. Race day registrations will be accepted on race day from 6:30 to 7:00 am.

How will it work?
The sprint triathlon will include a 5K Run/Walk, a 13 1/2 mile bicycle ride and a 300 meter swim in a supervised, lifeguarded pool. The swim will be up and back swimming in each lane working across the pool in a serpentine pattern. Triathletes will finish as they walk out of the zero entry area of the pool. Both runners and walkers are welcome to participate in the Triathlon.

The duathlon will include a 5K Run, a 13 1/2 mile bicycle ride and a 2nd 5K Run. Duathletes should plan to run the 5K portions of the race.
The triathlon/duathlon will start simultaneously with the Running Makes Cents 5K Run/Walk at 7:30 am.

5K participants will finish their race and triathletes/duathletes will transition to the 13 mile bicycle ride. The transition will occur in the Aquatic Center parking lot. The bike ride is an out-and-back route exiting Reinbeck to the south on Blackhawk Street, west on 270th and south on county Hwy T-55. Back in the Aquatic Center parking area triathletes will transition from bicycling to the 300 meter swim. Duathletes will transition from bicycling to running the 5K route a 2nd time.
Triathlon relay teams are welcome. Teams include 2 or 3 people. One participant will do the 5K, one will do the bike ride and one will do the swim. For 2 person teams, one of the participants will do two of the events. There are 3 divisions in the relay team category. The male division is made up of all males; the female division is made up of all females and the coed division has members from both genders. Relay teams are not based on age, however all triathlon participants must be at least 15 years of age by race day. You cannot race as both an individual and a team member.

The 5K and Duathlon events are for individuals only.
