The Railsplitter Triathlon is a Triathlon race in Petersburg, Illinois consisting of a Sprint.
Triathletes will challenge themselves with an open water wave start, out and back swim, starting and finishing at a gently slopping boat ramp. After a short distance to the transition area, athletes will take off on a 24.8 mile bike ride on country roads surrounded by rolling prairies and flat straight-aways. Upon completing the scenic and challenging bike course, athletes will finish with a hilly run through Lincoln's New Salem State Historic Site. Athletes will run through the same pioneer village Abraham Lincoln called home for six years of his life. Most all of the run course within Lincoln's New Salem will be shaded by large mature oak and maple trees.Keep Readingtriharderpromotions.com View Course Map
