You don't have to worry about bringing your wetsuits for this 400 meter pool swim. We're not having you swim with the gators in Bayou DeSaird! Just bring your suit and goggles for the 400 meter snaked pool swim. You'll always be going with the flow and will have ample room to pass folks.
This bike course is flat & fast with some technical turns along the way. See the following link for a course map - http://www.usatf.org/routes/view.asp?rID=106154. This map has the '07 course mapped out, but it's the same distance.
This fast, flat, and scenic run course traverses ULM's campus crossing Bayou Desaird twice & finishes on the 50 yard line of Malone Stadium and even see yourself cross the finish line on the new Jumbo-tron screen!!
