Tomorrow, 1,400 athletes will take to the shores of Geneva Lake in Williams Bay, Wis., for TriRock Lake Geneva. The Lake Geneva area is a popular destination spot for Chicagoans, as it’s located about two hours outside of Chicago and Milwaukee.
The race will feature both sprint (500-meter swim, 14.5-mile bike, 3.1-mile run) and Olympic-distance (1,500-meter swim, 28-mile bike, 6.2-mile run) races starting with a beach start into the clear, spring-fed water of Geneva Lake. The bike and run courses feature scenic views and rolling hills, and a run past Yerkes Observatory, in cool autumn weather. The high temperature for race day is 72 degrees. The finish line is located in the charming lakeside village of Williams Bay, Wis., with a fun-filled finish festival including a beer garden at nearby Pier 290, which participants can access by boat.
