Race Website:

Now located at beautiful Lake Anna State Park the Giant Acorn is an end of season ritual for hundreds of triathletes throughout the region. You can expect crystal clear water, a sandy beach start, and an immaculate park with lots of activities for the kids. The bike course is now one loop and a big ring flyer! Located just 30 minutes SW of Fredericksburg and about an hour NW of Richmond this is the last weekend of racing in the 2013 Virginia Triathlon Series.

Swim Course: The 1500 meter swim begins on the beach at Lake Anna State Park. The rectangular shaped course will have 2 right turns and sighting buoys will be located approximately every 75 meters. We expect the water at this time of year and at this section of the lake to be in the low 70's. A temperature reading will be taken and posted the Thursday prior to the event. The water temperature at this location has averaged in the low 70's which is pretty nice for October!

Bike Course: The bike course is a one loop 42K course. With a right turn out of the park athletes have great pavement and traverse much of the Kinetic Half course from 2005-2010. The best sections are when you race across the causeways with water on either side of you. The course is rolling and has a few challenging hills coming off the lake, but it is a whole lot of fun!

Run Course: The International run course is the same as the Sprint course, it's just 2 loops. There is a large hill at the beginning coming out of T2 but it levels off for the middle section of the course. There is a large down hill towards the finish line where athletes will start their second lap of the run. On your second pass athletes will veer 15 degrees into the finishing chute.

We can expect some very fast times for this great new course.
