Race #4 - HALF

1.2mi Swim - 55.5mi Bike - 13.1mi Run

Sunday morning arrives and participants must now summon enough strength to take on what is easily the toughest half iron course known to man. You will experience what participants refer to as the "Triple-T Shuffle", similar to the Ironman shuffle but worse! This will be the day you won't soon forget. It starts off with a two-lap 1.2 mile swim on a counter clockwise rectangle swim course along the shoreline of Turkey Creek. Next up is a scenic but challenging 2-lap 55.5 mile bike course. The squiggly lines on the map are not from an over caffeinated graphic designer, moreover these are actual "Alps like" switch backs, although significantly shorter than the real thing. These switch backs provide breathtaking views of the 60,000 acre Shawnee Forest like no other. After finishing the bike course participants will again head out on to Lamp Black Run - this time for two laps!
