NO SWIMMING BEFORE OR AFTER THE RACE. We will have a time trial start with one person over the start mat approximately every three seconds. The swim takes place in a spring fed lake with a large amount of aquatic life. If you get off course, you may swim through some hydrilla or other plant life. Dont panic, just keep swimming and you will get through it. Our lifeguards will be there to make sure you are safe and we will cut back the plants as best we can before the race. Approximately 50 meters from the finish, the lake becomes shallow with tall plants, so be extra cautious in this area.
Please be aware that this is a RARE opportunity to swim in undisturbed, protected waters that are an asset to San Marcos and the surrounding areas.
After you exit the water, you will run about 50 meters to the transition area; an aid station will be here. Open transition area - no assigned location per athlete. The swim-in and run-out will be at the end of the parking lot that is furthest from the park entrance. The bike exit and entrance will be on the entrance side of the parking lot.
Remember to have helmet securely fastened before you do anything else!
The course is a little bumpy in some areas, but is smooth overall. We will have police protection at the major intersections, but this is an open course so please be careful of traffic at all times. There are a few rolling hills throughout the course but overall it is nicely graded will decent road conditions. The roads will be swept in problem areas, yet special caution should be taken to avoid any falls. Listen for volunteers warning athletes to slow down.
SLOW DOWN AT TURN AROUND! VERY SHARP U-TURN!
The run course will began and end at Aquarena Springs. Half of the course will be pavement and grass with the remaining half on dirt and granite trails. Please prepare accordingly. The course will be clearly marked where we want you to run.
