Plainfield Try Tri

RaceMaker Productions is excited to launch the 2nd Annual Plainfield Try Tri at beautiful Splash Island Park in Plainfield, Indiana. This race is built to be fast, fun, and maybe a bit painful when raced right. The beautiful outdoor pool will allow us to race a 150 meter serpentine swim. We then will send participants out for a 11.25 ride through fast county streets. Once back we have a 2 mile run on the gorgeous Plainfield trail systems. This triathlon can be completed in under 45 minutes by the fastest really is short and sweet! Can't wait to host veterans and newbies at this new triathlon in Central Indiana!

Packet Pick Up Notes: 

Please note per USA Triathlon rules participants can ONLY pick up packets for themselves. Under no circumstances may an athlete pick up a packet for another person. Read more on the rule here:

Also note you must have photo ID and your USAT membership card (if annual member) for pick up. 

Transition Info: 

Plainfield Try Tri has a standard transition in a large asphalt parking lot at Splash Island. The transition has two entry points both marked with a large inflatable arch, and banners. One entry is the SWIM IN, and will also serve as the RUN OUT. The other entry point is the BIKE IN and BIKE OUT. Each entry point has timing mats allowing us to provide splits with pacing for your Swim, T1, Bike, T2, and then the mats at the finish line give us the final total time and run time. 

Only participants are allowed inside transition. 


Both participants and spectators should park in the near northside parking lots in reference to the building/pool. Please do not park in the far north lots (you'll be stuck there until the bike course is clear), or in the front (west) lots as those are open for the Branches Church taking place indoors that morning.
