Once you mount your bike outside of transition (with your bike helmet snapped), the course is a 1 mile loop. Our athletes 7 - 11 complete two loops while 12 - 16 and adults complete 5 loops (or 5 miles).
Some of our racers, the Duathletes, will skip the swim and begin their race with a run. 7 - 11 year-olds will begin with a 1/4 mile run and all others will run 1/2 mile. Both Triathletes and Duathletes, after they have finished the bike portion, complete a run of 1/2 mile (7 - 11) and 1 mile (12 - adult). The runs are on the paved paths.
