Description: Now located at beautiful Lake Anna State Park, the Giant Acorn is an end of season ritual for hundreds of triathletes throughout the region. You can expect crystal clear water, a sandy beach start, and an immaculate park with lots of activities for the kids. The bike course is the same as the Kinetic Sprint and consists of 3 turns outside of the park. Located just 30 minutes SW of Fredericksburg and about an hour NW of Richmond this is the last weekend of racing in the 2014 Virginia Triathlon Series.
Course Info: Swim Course: MAP The 750 meter swim begins on the beach at Lake Anna State Park. The rectangular shaped course will have 2 right turns and sighting buoys will be located approximately every 75 meters. We expect the water at this time of year and at this section of the lake to be in the low 70's. A temperature reading will be taken and posted the Thursday prior to the event. The water temperature at this location has averaged in the low 70's which is pretty nice for October! Bike Course: MAP (Scroll Down) The bike course is a lollipop style 16 mile course. With a left turn out of the park athletes have great pavement and a few hills as they ride the country roads of Spotsylvania County. Run Course: MAP (Scroll Down) The Sprint run course starts with a serious climb out of transition on the main park road. You will be tired coming out of T2 but it levels off for the middle section of the course as you run along the forested cabin and campground loops. There is a large down hill towards the finish line where athletes will finish by veering 15 degrees off the beach sidewalk into the finishing chute. This is a scenic and seriously fast run course once you get past the first 1/4 mile!
