Course:

Swim:
The Swim Course is an out-and-back swim that enters and exits the water on a boat ramp.  Distances are 500 meters in the Sprint distance and 1500 meters in the Olympic distance.  The tiered swim waves will be broken out by age group and distance.  Athletes should swim with the buoys to their left at all times.  Please pay special attention as return swimmers will be coming directly at you.

Water quality in George Wyth Lake will be tested for safety in the days leading up to the race.  If water quality is deemed to be unsafe for race day, the event will be a run-bike-run duathlon.  Athletes will be notified of any changes as soon as possible after determination is made.  Water temperature will also be measured to verify whether or not wetsuits will be allowed.

Bike:
The Bike Course is a very flat and fast course for both the Sprint and Olympic routes.  Distances are 15.4 miles (24.8 kilometers) in the Sprint distance and 24.8 miles (40 kilometers) in the Olympic distance.  The course includes turns, curves, and railroad track crossings, and portions will be open to public vehicle traffic.  Areas requiring greater caution will be staffed by law enforcement and/or volunteers.  Road hazards will be identified, but caution is advised throughout the course.  CPSC-approved helmets are required of all participants.

Run:
The Run Course is a simple out-and-back route on park roads through George Wyth State Park.  Distances are 5 kilometers (3.1 miles) in the Sprint distance and 10 kilometers (6.2 miles) in the Olympic distance.  Starting at the Transition Area, athletes will turn right onto Wyth Road, turn right again onto Alice Road, and continue on until the turnaround.  Then retrace your steps back to the Finish Line area.  Sprint athletes will make one loop, and Olympic athletes will make two loops.  There will be three aid stations along the course with water, sports drink, and ice.  Please note that park roads will be open to public vehicle traffic, so please stay alert to your surroundings.
