The course will be set by our swim director Paul Dribnock and will be a one loop, 1.5km (.94 mile) course marked often with buoys. The course will be marshaled by race staff and trained life guards. Typically the water is the perfect temperature to wear a wet suit and not have to worry about over-heating or being too cold. The water is completely free of current, wind, or other potential natural hazards.
As with our Metro Triathlon, the bike course at the Reservoir Triathlon will be on some of the most famous biking roads in the Santa Clara Valley. The race will have gently rolling hills and one steep climb. These are the roads that members from SVTC, TRIbe, Kain Performance, Team In Training, Wolfpack, and Specialized ride on every week of the year. The course is 40km (24.8 miles) long.
The best part of the run course, in our opinion, is the finish. Not just because you're done with the run, but because it is typically lined on both sides of the street and into the transition area finish with the local multi sport community. Again, the course will be 10km (6.2 miles) and flat to a couple of stride breakers in the form of rolling hills.
The Reservoir Triathlon will be held in and around the pristine Uvas Reservoir in Morgan Hill.
Parking for the Reservoir Triathlon will free, you will be directed to the parking location within one mile of the reservoir. Parking is on an adjacent piece of private property and you will not have to find your own parking spot.
