Course Information:

START: SWIM

The start of the swim will be “criterion” single file entry into the water and requires swimming 8x50m lengths of the pool for a total of 400m.  At the end of each 50m length, you must come in contact with the wall, then swim under the rope to switch lanes and continue swimming. Flip turns are acceptable.  After completing the swim course, exit the pool, exit the Natatorium and proceed to the Transition area.

TRANSITION TO BIKE

All athletes enter the Transition area thru the “SWIM IN” gate. Team members should proceed to the team area where your Team bicycle is racked and tag up with your waiting bike team mate. Single athletes will run to your rack location and transition to your bike. Change into your cycling gear and WALK your bicycle to the “BIKE OUT” exit gate. NO RIDING PERMITTED. Take note of your location in the transition area, you don’t want to be searching for your rack location when you return. The Transition area is only open to entrants and team members.

TRANSITION TO RUN

DISMOUNT from your bike and re-enter the Transition area thru the “BIKE IN” gate. NO RIDING IN TRANSITION. Team members should proceed to the team area where you will rack your bicycle and tag up with your waiting RUN team mate. Single athletes proceed to your rack location and prepare for the run. Change into your running gear. Be observant of bicycle traffic in the Transition area, the Transition area will be very busy during this time. Race volunteers will direct you as you exit thru the RUN OUT gate. The Transition area is only open to entrants and team members.

RUN

Proceed onto the run course and pay close attention to course markings and volunteers.  The course is rolling with a challenging cross country and pathway type of elevation gain and loss. Again, safety is the most critical element of the run. Always be aware of moving traffic.  Pay close attention to traffic control officers and volunteers on the course. The running surface is uneven in places and it is good practice to focus on your footing.  There will be one water station on the course and another at the finish area. The race concludes with the completion of the run and all timing will be recorded at the “FINISH” line.
