Half Iron Swim Course

The 1.2 mile (2000m) swim will start from the wide beach of Lake Monticello and follow a clockwise triangular course back to the beach. It is the same course as the Olympic but Turn Buoy #2 will be further to provide the .3 mile longer distance. There will be approximately 3 swim waves starting 4 minutes apart. Final waves will be determined by Saturday at Packet Pickup. See Wetsuits/Water Temperature information below for more details. 


Half Iron Bike Course

The bike is 2 loops of a 28 mile scenic aero-bike friendly course with long flat stretches mixed with moderatly rolling hills. The last few miles will be a nice overall downhill before you begin the run.  Please click on the maps elevation profiles for further details. There will be an aid station with a water bottle handoff at approximately mile 8, 19, and 35 & 46. Hammer Gels will be available at every aid station and Heed will be available for your water bottles at mile 19 & 46.


Half Iron Run Course

The run is a 13.1 mile course in the friendly neighborhood of Lake Monticello. Runners will experience flat stretches mixed with moderate hills. Homeowners will be cheering you on right from their front yards. As you come home into the finish there will be a scenic view of Lake Monticello and a celebration circle of post race food and drinks. There will be an aid station at the run start and approximately every 2 miles with water and Lemon Lime Heed by Hammer Nutrition. Hammer Gels will also be available at the turnarounds.

Swim Start & Exit


Both the Olympic .9 mile swim and the Half Iron 1.2 mile swim will be a clockwise triangular course. They are the same course but Turn Buoy #2 will be placed further out on the Half Iron course to provide the .3 mile longer distance. Each will start and finish from the wide beach shore of Lake Monticello. After exiting the swim, participants will run approximately 50 meters on sand and smooth boardwalk to the asphalt based transition area.

    Well, I haven't done a million triathlons, but I've done enough to know that the running of this event left something to be desired. First - packet pick up was NOT efficient. Instead of using an assembly line model you were left to figure out where you needed to go next on your own. It wasn't too bad until I asked where I needed to go and I got the deer in the headlights look. The timing chips were in a different location than the packet pick up, but no one said "hey, the timing chip station is over there." Second - there were no mileage markers on the bike course! Seriously?! There was no one to tell you to slow down on a steep downhill with a sharp 90 degree turn at the bottom, and on top of that I almost got hit by a car when I made a turn...where there was a cop (I don't blame the race team on this car one)! Third - perhaps the most egregious of all things, the announcer did not even bother to announce the winning Half-Iron distance athlete as he came across the finish line. I don't even think he saw him coming...so disappointing. Now that I have my complaints out of the way, overall the race was good. Good swim, bike and run courses. I don't know if it's one I will do again, but the fixes would be fairly easy.
