DMSTri will hold its next Iowa Games Triathlon on July 9, 2017, starting on the beach of the Big Creek State Park in Polk City. Participants must pick up their triathlon packets the day prior from the Exile Brewing Company or the morning of the event. All participants must attend a mandatory pre-race meeting directly before the start.
