It Takes a Village

It Takes a Village


One of the coolest events around, by far, is TRI Clear Lake.  It’s something different; something out of the ordinary compared to all our other events.  Unique is the term that springs to mind, actually.

But let me tell you, folks, it takes a lot of planning and preparation to pull it off.  Thankfully, our team of race directors know a thing or two about hosting a detailed event as such.  And so, we applaud them, for all their valiant efforts.  For planning.  For organizing.  For all the meetings and countless hours they put into making sure the event runs smoothly on race day.

Now… while they’re the ones slaving away for countless hours throughout the year, the TRI Clear Lake Sponsors deserve a great big shout-out as well.  They’re the ones who have, so generously, opened their pocketbooks or donated their time and talent to ensure our TRI is everything it can be.

First up, kudos to the Clear Lake Area Chamber of Commerce for hosting this event.  It’s quite a testimony to their commitment and dedication to ensure Clear Lake remains a vibrant, bustling, all-around-great-place to live, work and play!

In 2019, we are so happy to have Athletico on board as the Title Sponsor.  They are the head honchos.  The big cheese.  They put their heart and soul (and generous sponsorship money) into TRI Clear Lake in hopes that it continues to be such a successful event.

Next on the docket is our Gold Sponsors:  Bob’s Marine Service, Jenny Kopriva-Triad Realty, and CL Tel. You are definitely GOLDEN in our eyes!

The Silver Sponsors are: American Solutions for Business, Dean Snyder Construction, Heartland Asphalt, Lake Time Boat Club, McKesson, Rookies, Sevens, and Tap’d.

The Bronze Sponsor lineup consists of Clear Lake Bank & Trust, Cookies Etc, and Kingland.

Thank you from the bottom of our swimming, biking and running hearts!!

You may see many business names along the TRI Clear Lake route at various mile markers.  They are the Mile Marker Sponsors:  We Care Chiropractic, Hogan Hansen, Chuck Myers, Realtor-Hall Realty, NIP Fitness, MBT Bank, Farmers State Bank, Coca-Cola/Atlantic Bottling, and Yohnco.

We’d also like to thank the support crew for all they do to make TRI Clear Lake such a success.  Our Media Sponsor – Alpha Media.  Bike Support – Wayne’s Ski & Cycle, and the Finish Line Sponsor – United Beverage.

TRI Clear Lake is also sponsored in part by the Iowa Economic Development Authority and the North Iowa Sports Authority.

The 750 meter swim at State Beach, 12.4 mile bike trek along South Shore past the prairies and the windmills, and 3.1 mile run along our beautiful lake before it loops around the Surf and ends downtown is one heck of a fun time.  Especially because TRI Clear Lake has an incredible finish line party!  Bringing people into our tourist, lake-town destination from all over, TRI Clear Lake is excited to hold its Third Annual event the same weekend as the “Take Me Back Festival.”

There’s still time to register for this fantastic event.  In fact – all registrations received before MAY 12th are entitled to a complimentary t-shirt.  Don’t miss out.  Get signed up TODAY.

See ya at the Lake!
