Serene Lake Swim OR Paddle
The swim start is located at Lincoln Trail State Park Lake. For triathletes, the 500 meter swim will begin with a self-seeded rolling start and will end on a separate dock consisting of 2 turns and exiting on a separate dock along the lakefront lined with spectator and local support. The water temperature will be taken on race day, but participants are advised to bring a wetsuit if they have one.
Paddlers will start their 1 kilometer journey with a floating mass start, and finish at the boat ramp where volunteers will safely assist you onto dry land.

The 20-kilometer bike leg offers just the right amount of challenge and thrill to keep competitors engaged. The two-loop course is entirely within the park's confines and closed to outside traffic.
