Swim:
The swim is a 300 yard pool swim in the Morrison Family YMCA outdoor pool. This is a staggered start event where participants start every 15 seconds at one side of the pool and snake their way up and down each lane as they work towards the other side of the pool. Participants are seeded fastest to slowest and must submit an estimated 100 yard swim time when registering. Swim caps are not provided for pool swim events. If you would like to wear a swim cap, please be sure to bring your own.

Bike:
The bike course is one 12.7 mile loop departing from the front lot of the Morrison Family YMCA and crossing through the Blakeney community in Mecklenburg County and into Union County via Rea Road. The entire bike course will be open to traffic; however, one lane of Rea Road will be coned off for race participants. As you depart from and return to the facility on your bike, be aware that runners will be running out of the same main corridor. Volunteers will direct you to the bike chute leading you back to the transition area. Please take a few minutes before you report to the pool for your swim launch to assess the access points to and from the transition area.

TA:
The transition area is set up in zones to allow for quicker access of TA items. Please be patient while your TA zone finishes the race. Once participants in your zone of the TA have completed, volunteers will direct you how to safely collect your belongings.

We encourage you to invite your family! Spectators are welcome and must park in one of the overflow parking lots then walk up Bryant Farms Road sidewalk to the spectator access point. Spectators can sit in the Bandshell for a first hand view of their racer finishing or they can mingle at the finish line, sponsor tables or other activities. Its a family event and you will find fun activities for all! The moon bounces are always a favorite for the kids! Please advise your spectators how important it is to 1) not park on the course to unload passengers from their car 2) not cross over the course chutes or block participants on the course at any point 3) do avoid the transition area. Also note that the food vendors are for race participants only.

Participants who park in the main front lot at the Morrison Family YMCA will not be able to leave until the last runner departs the transition area exit chute. For the safety of all participants, this is non-negotiable. We expect this to be approximately 11:30am. Should you need to leave after completion of your race, please park in the over flow parking lot at Hawkridge Elementary instead of the main front lot.
