Description:

This is the hardest and most rewarding half iron race around.  Located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, the course has everything the local landscape has to offer...climbing.  The swim is calm and fast, the bike includes a 6 mile CAT 1 climb to the turn around, and the run will leave you crumpled in a heap. This is not a race to stare at your splits on the clock, you just race the course and see what heppens.  We are bringing the hard back to the half iron distance.

Ever want to win the King of the Mountain Polka-Dots?  We award a KOM jersey to the fastest male and female for the climb up Ft Moauntain.
Course Information:
The swim portion will be a deep water start and will commence in waves.  The swim start/finish is located adjacent to the transition area and consists of a one loop counter clockwise course.  Spectators will be able to view the entire swim course from the top of Harris Branch beach.  The water temp this time of year is 68-72 degrees.  Wesuits will be permitted.

The bike protion is and out and back course that winds around Carters Lake then heads north to Ft. Mountain State Park.  The bike is a rolling course with two substantial climbs, one at the half way park and the other to get back to transition.
