1/4 mile swim, 14.64 mile bike ride, then a 3.6 mile (double loop course) run. The courses will be marked with signage and we will have volunteers in strategic places to help you find your way along the course. Follow blue arrows for the bike course and red arrows for the run course. Performance and results at the finish will be based on the time from your timing chips, and not on who crosses the finish line first!
This is a BYOC race: Bring your own cap (if you want to wear one). We are not issuing swim caps.
Wetsuits are not permitted at this race. Neither are snorkels, fins, or other forward-propelling devices.
You will swim 400 yards in the pool at Wittenberg University in the HPERC building. This will happen in a serpentine style, up and down each lane until you are at the opposite end of the pool. Swimmers will go in a staggered start, spaced about 10 seconds apart.
Once you complete the swim you will bike just under 15 miles on an out-and-back course.
THIS COURSE IS SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT THAN LAST YEAR!
Please review the bike course here: www.usatf.org/routes/view.asp?rID=527749
The bike course map shows the location of the two water stations.
The final race leg of the Tiger Tri will be the 3.6 mile run. You must complete 2 loops of the run course!! (The one loop that you see on the map is about 1.8 miles.)
After the first run loop, go back past the Transition area and do the same loop again. When you come up the hill to finish the second loop, go right and straight to the finish line (near HPERC building front entrance).

There are 2 water stations (you can see them on the bike course map):
-Water Station #1: on campus (near the transition area) and will be accessible during the run course (beginning and middle of the run) and at the beginning and end of the bike course.
-Water station #2 will be at the turnaround for the bike and it is located at Buck Creek State Park.
