The swim course will be identical to last year. The 1/3 mile swim (10/4/2013 water temperature: 82 F ) will start on the white sands of the FSU Reservations beach at Lake Bradford. Swimmers will head out into the lake, make a right hand turn, another right hand turn, and then come in to shore via the boat ramp. The swim will start in waves
The bike course will be the same as last year. The bike turnaround point is at Tom Roberts Road. The bike will be just under 14 miles total distance. The bike course is still an out and back course, down Lake Bradford Road, Capital Circle, and Springhill Road. On Springhill, bikes will turn right onto Tom Roberts Road and ride down about 1/4 mile before turning around in the road. You will then head back out to Springhill to return to the FSU Reservation. The bike course will close at 10:30am. It is a generally flat course with a few short, gentle hills. Note that the bike course is NOT a closed course - be mindful of traffic and the roadway! FHP officers will be manning the major intersections.
This run is fast and flat, with no off road components. RUNNERS MUST STAY ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THE ROAD EXITING THE FSU RESERVATION. There will be bikes coming in the gate on the right. WHEN RETURNING TO THE REZ, ALL RUNNERS MUST STAY ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE ROAD. This run will take you on scenic Lakeview, with a view of Lake Bradford most of the run. It will be a fast course!
