400 yard swim + 15 mile bike + 5 K run. Only the pool is flat on this course! Experience the High Desert Mesa - we have to swim in a pool, there is no water here! :0)
SWIM - 400 yard seeded start serpentine style pool swim. Fastest swimmer starts, followed by next fastest, etc, etc, (that is what makes it work and why submitting a swim time is required when registering). Each participant swims up and back in each lane, then crossed under to the next lane, continuing down 8 of the 25 yard lanes to the exit.
BIKE - 15 mile out and back bike will challenge your climbing skills and also let you enjoy an unobstructed view of the spectacular Sandia Mountains.
RUN - 3.1 mile run starts on an uphill, then it gets steeper, twice. Then you get a mile of downhill in the middle, and finish on a gradual uphill incline. It IS for beginners - but not for sissies! :0)
