Participants swim one length (25 yards) in their assigned lane at the Valdese Aquatic Center Pool where they are helped by volunteers to exit the pool.
Participants then exit the pool area through the swim exit door and make their way to the transition area to get their bike and gear.
The bike course takes participants gently down Hill Street making one sharp left turn before coming to the turn around area that is large enough to make a safe turnaround and heads back up Hill Street back to the Transition Area.
The run course leaves the Transition Area and heads to the right up Laurel toward Main Street to the turnaround cone where participants head back down to the finish line.
Both Laurel and Hill Street will be closed to vehicular traffic.
