The Des Moines Escape Triathlon in 2017 will offer challenging courses, scenic venues and unmatched hospitality. Both Olympic and sprint competitors will swim in the beautiful Gray’s Lake, bike through historic Des Moines and run to finish the race at the Iowa State Capitol.
The triathlon tradition in Des Moines was started in June of 2007 with the inaugural running of the Hy-Vee Triathlon! The triathlon world recognized in a very short time that the standards set forth by Hy-Vee were unlike anything in the sport. From the massive prize structure, to the World and Olympic Champions, to its attention to detail, the Hy-Vee Triathlon will forever stand as a legacy to the food store giant and the city of Des Moines.
The 2015-2016 Des Moines Triathlon upheld the rigorous standards and exciting action established in June of 2007 remain true and alive for the athletes, sponsors and of course the city of Des Moines.
Premier Event Management has produced every event since June of 2007, and will continue the proud tradition with the inaugural 2017 Des Moines Escape Triathlon.
