Followed by a 12 mile bike around the West Side of the scenic island.
Finish with a 4 mile run on our East Beaches.
HELMETS ARE MANDATORY.
Race Course: ¼ mile swim, 12 mile bike, 4 mile run
The start is at Fred Benson town beach - you will enter the water and swim ¼ mile around buoys.
Swimmers will exit the water and run to the bike transition in the front of the beach pavilion.
The 12 mile bike consists of two laps which take you out around the west side of the island and back to the pavilion- please be aware of traffic - there are no marshals.
Bikers will return to the pavilion and begin the 4 mile run to the end of Surf Beach and back up to the end of Mansion Beach. Runners will head back to Town Beach to the finish line.
There are three water stops on the beach run- town beach (there and back), Surf Hotel turn around point, and the Mansion Beach turn around point.
A water stop is available at all transition points.
Fresh fruit and water will be provided at the finish.
