Featured in Triathlete Magazine as a bucket list tri, Battle of Waterloo has 10 legs totaling 42 miles that traverse the sprawling Waterloo Recreation Area, one of the most rugged and beautiful parks in the Midwest. You’ll bike paved remote roads, run winding dirt lanes, climb steep trails, and swim across three wilderness lakes… carrying your shoes and swim gear with you the entire time. Don’t have that much time? Try Half the Battle: six legs, 18 miles of the same terrain (OK, less than half, but Half the Battle is a great name!).
The Battle of Waterloo is the real deal: no cargo nets to climb, no pits of mud in your path, no monkey bars to maneuver through. The lake may be ice cold… or it may not. Our only threat of electroshock is a thunderstorm. Lilypad tangles and jungles of aquatic plants are amongst the obstacles you’ll encounter. Battle of Waterloo is you and mother nature and is and you’ll win the battle!
>The hottest finisher’s medal around (the three finisher’s medals in the series are all functional tools. Talk about beautiful — and practical — bling!)
>A super-soft, high-quality Battle of Waterloo race T-shirt
>The best post-race snacks, period!
>FREE downloads of your professional Battle of Waterloo photos compliments of Epic Races
>Boasting rights about having completed one of the country’s bucket list triathlons, as seen in Triathlete Magazine!

Every member of the Epic Lifeguard Team has American Red Cross Waterfront Lifeguarding Certification in addition to basic American Red Cross Lifeguarding Certification. This means that our guards have all taken and passed an additional course in which they received training in the knowledge and skills needed to prevent and respond to emergencies in non-surf, open-water areas. Our superbly trained lifeguards are yet another reason our races are so Epic! Our lifeguards are also able to keep our swimmers safe thanks to our official SUP company, Red Star Board Company. We’re very grateful to have Red Star as part of Epic team.

Non-USAT Fee Explanation: The $15/daily adult and $10/annual youth fee for non-USAT members pay for USAT insurance. The entire fee goes to USAT. USAT is the national governing body for the sport of triathlon. Epic Races’ affiliation is with USAT.
