Lauren Goss wins in Des Moines

Another win in the 'Escape' triathlon series

Consistent performer Lauren Goss is back to competing, and made it a successful outing in Des Moines, Iowa. Formerly the Hy-Vee Triathlon, athletes endured a 1.5k swim in Gray’s Lake in 79-degree water; a 40k bike ride through historic Des Moines; and a 10k run that finished at the Iowa State Capitol.

"This was my third time racing in Des Moines, it’s a very special place to me, the fans are awesome. Today was a big training block for me after not racing in six weeks. I went in feeling confident but also being conservative on the swim and bike, knowing the run was my strong suit. I am thrilled to take home my first Des Moines win today.”

Lauren took the win in 1:55:32. Second place was Sarah Haskins, and third place was Erin Storie.
