    Course Info:
    SWIM COURSE AND TRANSITION AREA
  • The swim is in the pool. You will enter the pool in an "interval start" fashion.
  • Participants line up by race number (beginning with the lowest number to the highest.) One person at a time enters the pool and begins swimming when given the start command. Swim down the first lane, touch the wall, go under the lane rope, swim down that lane, and continue the same process until you exit after swimming eight lengths for a total of 200 yards.
  • We encourage participants to pass ONLY at the wall. If someone taps your foot, please stop at the wall and let them go under the lane rope before you.
  • Your race number is assigned by your estimated swim time. You can choose to start at the end by notifying us at least one week prior to the race.
  • When you exit the pool, volunteers will direct you to the transition area where you will begin your bike segment of the race.

  • The loop winds through residential Mountain Brook and Mountain Brook Village.

  • Count on rolling hills!
