Lake Zurich's elected officials have approved an agreement so the village can host triathlons for three consecutive years that are part of a national series. Trustees at a recent meeting included the agreement with the Iron Girl Triathlon in a package of other items approved by a 5-0 vote. The first Iron Girl will be in and around Paulus Park on Sunday, June 16. Under the host venue agreement between Lake Zurich and Iron Girl parent World Triathlon Corp., the event would return in mid-June 2014 and 2015. Only women may run, bicycle and swim in the Iron Girl Triathlon. The swimming portion will be in the village's namesake lake, which borders Paulus Park.
