Description:
 Patriot's Half: Located on the James River next to the Jamestown settlement, centerpiece for the 400th celebration of Jamestown. Just minutes from I-64 in Williamsburg, VA the Patriot's Half is a must do event. After a 1.2 mile swim in the James River athletes will ride through 58 miles of rural countryside on mostly flat terrain and good pavement. Once you have laced up your running shoes you'll be treated to a flat and fast 13.1 mile run on a combination of bike paths and jogging trails.

Be sure to even get in a day or two early to get your race packet, check out the race site and experience experience all that the greater Williamsburg area has to offer, including modern attractions, amusements, and historical sites from Jamestown to Yorktown.

Course Details:
Swim:
The swim course is a 1.2 mile rectangular course in the brackish James River. The start and finish alternate each year between the beach next to ferry and the beach downriver from the 4H center (tide dependent). The water temperature is expected to be in the upper 70's. A preliminary water temperature will be posted on the website on the Thursday prior to the event. An official reading will be taken race morning. There is a current in this swim course, be sure to practice swimming across currents and how to take advantage of them.

Bike: The bike course is fast and mostly flat. There are a couple rollers and sections of false flat on this course but you can ride the entire way in your big ring. There are 3 water bottle hand offs on the course at miles 15, 30, and 44 (Deer park sport caps). Please plan your fluid intake accordingly as there will be 12 miles to ride from the last hand off to the bike finish.

Run: The new run course is FANTASTIC! This course is a combination of asphalt bike paths and VERY well maintained and mulched jogging trails. There is not a hill anywhere on this course. It is a 2 loop course for the half with well stocked aid stations at least every mile throughout. Each aid station will have water, HEED, ice, flat Coke, Chex mix, orange quarters, Hammer Gel, and E-Caps. Each station will also have a porta jon nearby.

Post Race Food: Come ready to race and leave full and tired. We will have BBQ, pizza, and vegetarian options available. You can even do your cool down at Busch Gardens!
