Course Information:


Swim Start Info:
This will be a time trial start swim by assigned race numbers. This start is the most practical and safest start for the area we have to use at the Metro Parks East Bank Boat Dock. Racers will start on the boat dock at the south end and return to the north end of the boat dock using provided ladders to exit from the river back onto the dock. Volunteers will be on hand to provide direction and assistance.

Race numbers are assigned by estimated swim time, with the fastest swim time in the intermediate distance race being assigned number 1. The intermediate racers will start at 7:30 am, with a racer starting approximately every 3 seconds. Relay teams signed up for the intermediate distance race will start at the end of all registered individuals in the intermediate distance race.

The sprint distance race numbers will start at number 600, with number 600 having the fastest estimated swim time. The process will be the same as the above for the intermediate distance race. The first sprint distance swimmer will enter the water approximately 5 minutes after the final intermediate racer starts. 

Course bouys will be identified to all racers and kayak support on the water will also assist racers to stay on course.

Swim Caps:
Swim caps will be provided at packet pick up and must be worn for safety / visibility. Intermediate distance racers will wear lime green caps and sprint racers will wear white caps.


The Bike

Thanks to TDOT - the Intermediate Distance bike course will be a two-loop 20k course totaling 40k on Ellington Parkway, which is a short hop from the stadium on downtown streets. Ellington Parkway is a four-lane highway connecting downtown to neighborhoods to the north and east of the city. It will be completely closed to traffic during the event.


The short course event will be one 20k loop - same course as the intermediate.


Course support: ACME Multisports will be on-site both Saturday and Sunday and will provide course support on Sunday along with the Bike Pedlar. You are allowed to accept assistance from official course support but not from another racer or an individual that is NOT part of the race staff or support team.

The Run

The run course for the intermediate distance will be a two-loop 5k course totaling 10k of running a nice mix of the east side and the west side of the river in the downtown business district. Expect some hills and some flats - a very spectator friendly course.


The short course event will be one 5k loop - same course as the intermediate.


Course support: Water and Energy Drinks will be offered at the run start, around mile 1/4, and around mile 2/5.
