BONUS INTERNATIONAL POINTS EVENT!! Each year we will select a different International event (literally pulled out of a hat), to be the bonus points event. This year the Inside Out Sports White Lake International was picked, and this event will have a scoring weight of .98! Great opportunity for series competitors to really boost their score and spice up the standings.

Swim: White Lake is one of the finest lakes you will ever have the pleasure to swim in - a perfect oval, two miles long and one mile across. The lake, which is fed by subterranean springs, is crystal clear with a sand bottom - about nine feet deep out in the very middle. Most mornings, White Lake is so perfectly flat; you would swear you were looking at a sheet of ice. This is an in-water start with participants lining up with the end of the two piers/docks at the NCFFA Center. The swim course is a triangular shaped course. Participants exit the water at the end of the easternmost pier/dock and run about 300 yards to the transition area. Swim caps will be provided.
The water temperature at White Lake is usually very close to the USAT threshold temperature of 78 degrees. Check out the USA Triathlon wetsuit rules if you are not familiar with them - the rules can be found on the following link.
Bike: The 45K bike course is a one loop design. It is a very fast, flat course. Absolutely the fastest International bike course in North Carolina. Part of this course is the same as the White Lake Half held in May.
Run: The 10K run is an out & back course. The course is flat and fast.
