In partnership with the US Army Corps of Engineers and the City of Carlyle, MSE Racing is proud to bring to you the Carlyle Lake Triathlon. This event replaces the CAPEX Triathlon from prior years.

Experience an exciting rolling beach start for the beautiful Carlyle Lake swim, transitioning to a flat, scenic bike course over the planes of Illinois.  The run takes you on rolling country roads to finish coming over the spillway at the end with a view of the largest man-made lake in Illinois. With multiple distance options to choose from, there is sure to be an event for every type and skill level of triathlete.

You’ll revel in the famously flat and fast roads of Carlyle, the view over the spillway of the dam, and much, much more!
