International Distance: Time trial start. This race was the regional club championship for 2012 and 2013. A well organized fund raising event. Produced by the Rotary Club of Seven Springs, with the help of 200+ volunteers. All proceeds go to local charities, including YMCA and Metropolitan Ministries.
Swim: The Swim portion of the race happens in a pristine natural lake on the Starkey Family Ranch. Since it is an October Race, there is a chance the race will be legal for wetsuits.
Bike: The bike portion happens in the Starkey Wilderness Park. The International Distance finishes on a long straightaway along SR 54. We close a entire lane on SR 54 for your safety!
Run: The run portion winds through the quaint Town of Longleaf. The race is in a rural setting. This means minimal encounters with CARS! Experienced and Novices alike can concentrate on racing and not traffic.
