This event is very unique because the swim start is a Time Trial Start with athletes staggered every 10 seconds. To maximize time, 2 athletes will start the swim every 10 seconds. The last swimmer should start no later than 9:45 AM. Participants will be seeded based on their 100 yard swim time.
This unique start aspect offers a new experience from the traditional wave start format because having no wave starts greatly decreases the chances you will be kicked in the head, lose goggles, safety issues, etc.
Seasoned triathletes also will have the chance to fly through the swim and race course due to decreased bunching of athletes on the race course and in the water.
Family members/spectators will be able to cheer you on from the start to the finish. What other event allows for this? Usually you have no idea where your loved one is in the mix of arms and splashing water.
Belews Lake Triathlon is centrally located in Stokesdale, NC for easy access and short travel time from almost any spot in the Triangle.
