Just as the Hy-Vee Triathlon has always been, this race is open to anyone wanting to participate.  Whether you are a first time triathlete or a veteran to the sport!  There is no qualification process to race in this event.

HY-VEE TRIATHLON AGE GROUP ELITE

The 2014 Hy-Vee Age Group Triathlon is the first qualifying event for the 2015 Hy-Vee 5150 US Championship. To race in the Age Group Elite division of the 2014 Hy-Vee Age Group Triathlon, you must furnish proof of completing an international distance event (1.5k swim, 40k bike, 10k run) with a time below 2:15 for men and below 2:30 for women within the last year.

HY-VEE TRIATHLON AGE GROUP

An athlete who races in the Hy-Vee Triathlon within a defined age range and who competes against others of the same sex within this age range. Example: Male 20-24. If an age group athlete decides to assist in the swim portion of the event for a relay team, that age group athlete is not eligible for an age group award and that age group athlete must start the event in the Relay Swim Wave. If an individual athlete wishes to swim for a relay, he/she may do so but for only one relay team. Any athlete can only wear two timing chips (one on each ankle) to be accurately timed.
