Olympic Bike Course
The bike course is a 24 mile scenic aero-bike friendly course with long flat stretches mixed with moderately rolling hills. The first half is rolling hills. The second half includes longer flat stretches.  There will be an aid station with a water bottle handoff at approximately mile 15 just after taking a sharp right turn onto Martin King Rd.

Olympic Run Course
The run is a 6.2 mile mostly out and back course in the friendly neighborhood of Lake Monticello. Runners will experience flat stretches mixed with moderate hills. Homeowners will be cheering you on right from their front yards. As you come home into the finish there will be a scenic view of Lake Monticello and a celebration circle of post race food and drinks. There will be four aid stations at the run start, approximately mile 1.5, mile 3, and mile 4.5 with water and Lemon Lime Heed by Hammer Nutrition.


Half Swim Course

The last few miles will be a nice overall downhill before you begin the run. There will be an aid station with a water bottle handoff at approximately mile 8, 19, and 35 & 46. Hammer Gels will be available at every aid station and Heed will be available for your water bottles at mile 19 & 46.

Other Info: Swim Start & Exit
Both the Olympic .9 mile swim and the Half Iron 1.2 mile swim will be a clockwise triangular course. They are the same course but Turn Buoy #2 will be placed further out on the Half Iron course to provide the .3 mile longer distance. There will be a wave start format with each wave starting from the wide beach shore of Lake Monticello approximately 4 minutes apart from the previous wave. The wave arrangement will be announced prior to the event date. After exiting the swim onto the same beach, participants will run approximately 50 meters on sand and smooth boardwalk to the asphalt based transition area.
Lake Swimming Rules

Lake Monticello Swimming, Biking and Running Rules
Swimming is not allowed in the main lake. This means NO swimming before the race in the main lake. You will be disqualified if you swim in the main lake before or after the race. Monticelloman has received approval for a designated swim practice area on Saturday, May 3 from 1pm-5pm and race morning. It is approximately 100yds long and 25yds wide and allows for laps and practice in your wetsuit. Any race participant who swims outside of the designated triathlon swim practice area or select coves will be DISQUALIFIED.

Lake Monticello Owners Association swim safety rules: Due to boat traffic, swimming is not allowed in the main area of the lake (when the race is not occurring). Only select coves are available for swimming. All guests must be invited by a resident to swim in the Lake Monticello coves.

The Lake Monticello venue is a gated community and closed to all non-residents. All residents and their guests must follow the Lake Monticello Owner’s Association rules for swimming, biking or running at the lake. Any rules that are broken will result in disqualification from the race. Thank you for being a conscientious triathlete, following the rules and bringing awareness to others.

The bike course is 99.5% outside of the Lake Monticello gated community. To practice the course we recommend parking at Crofton Plaza on Lake Monticello Rd. This is located just 1/4 mile northwest of the Lake Monticello main gate which is the start and finish of the bike course. There is a BP gas station in Crofton Plaza with Blimpies subs and snacks to refuel post workout! There is plenty of parking at Crofton Plaza. Please be considerate to not park long term in the main spots next to the open local businesses.
