WATER TEMPERATURE/ WET SUIT POLICY
The water temperature is expected to be between 70 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. We will be measuring the temperature over the next few days to determine if the swim will be wet suit legal. We would suggest that if you own a wet suit, to bring it just in case the swim is deemed wet suit legal. If you do not own a wet suit, that is perfectly fine, it is not required.
Hotel Fort Des Moines
Hy-Vee and IronKids team is proud to partner with Kyle's Bikes for the Championship race. Kyle's Bikes will be on site throughout the weekend to assist with any mechanical or bike needs. Feel to stop by their shop or swing by the expo for all of your bike tech needs.
