The 250 yard pool swim will take place in the Rex Wellness Center of Wakefield's lap pool. Participants will then make their way to the transition area in the larger parking lot in the back corner of the facility. The bike course is a technical course that will present some nice flats and a few small climbs great for the beginner triathlete. To finish the race, athletes will enjoy a 3.1 mile run through the neighborhoods in the northern most parts of Wake County. There will be a water station as you exit the transition area and at the turnaround on the run. The race will finish up near the transition area. Post race snacks and water will be available at the finish line.
All participants must submit a average 100 meter swim time for seeding purposes. Being a pool swim with a staggered start, participants are seeded from fastest to slowest. If you know any previous swim time from a practice, race, etc., we have supplied a distance calculator next to your estimated swim time. By seeding yourself properly, you'll end up swimming near people who swim the same pace as you. This will reduce the number of people who you will need to pass or the number of people who will be passing you.
5:30-6:30am race morning outside of the Rex Wellness Center
