This triathlon features a 1/4 mile swim, followed by a 11 mile bike with no road crossings and an entire lane closed to traffic, then finishes with a 3.1 mile closed course run inside beautiful CB Smith Park.
The swim is a 1/4 mile swim in CB Smiths lake. It is a great race for first timers as the water is flat with no current or waves, so it makes for an easy swim.
The bike course starts by exiting CB Smith Park and going south on Flamingo. Riders will turn right and head west on Pines to the first right turn and continue staying on the right as they circle around the outside of the park. We turn right at all intersections and all roads have 2 or more lanes, so the course is extremely safe even though it goes outside of the park. After circling the outside of the park in a clockwise fashion, riders will circle the inside of the park in a counter-clockwise fashion around the outer lane of the street inside the park. The bike course is 5.5 miles and we will do 2 laps consisting of an outside loop, then an inside loop, then an outside loop, then another inside loop.
The run course goes along the path surrounding the lake in a clockwise fashion. Triathletes will complete 2 laps here as well to make 3.1 miles. The duathlon will start with 1 run lap and finish with 1 run lap.
