The Siouxperman Triathlon began as a dream conceived at a lunch table in a local Mexican restaurant during the summer of 2006; Community-lovers and spirited athletes dreamed of hosting an event that would involve the entire community, promote wellness, be fun and well organized, utilize excellent facilities, and serve athletes well.
The dream became a reality on May 5, 2007. The first annual Siouxperman Triathlon was a HUGE success! Nearly 250 athletes participated in the event held in Sioux Center. They were encouraged and directed by over 100 volunteers from the community as well as personnel from the local police department, EMTs, fire department, and the Sioux County Sheriff’s Office. In 2008, the second Siouxperman Triathlon hosted over 300 participants and was again a huge success. Siouxperman 2009-2017 each followed suit with a spectacular event each year!
A few improvements have been made to the event, but the original commitment remains: Community, wellness, excellence, and fun. Don’t miss it! Be a part of the next Siouxperman – sign up, volunteer, donate, or cheer from your front porch. The Siouxperman Triathlon of Sioux Center, Iowa is indeed a sioux-per event!
The 13th annual, 2019 Siouxperman Triathlon will take place in Sioux Center, IA on Saturday, May 4, 2019 at 8:00 a.m. It consists of an indoor 300yd swim, an outdoor 25k bike (helmets required), and an outdoor 5k run.
