COURSE INFORMATION

Triathlon: Minimum age requirements to participate in the triathlon is 16 years old.

Swim - Open water ½ mile out and back course in Canoe Creek. Wetsuits are permitted. This is a challenging swim so if you have not swam in open water before; we highly recommend you practice before race. All participants must wear the swim cap provided.

Bike - Helmets are required and absolutely no headsets of any kind are allowed. The bike portion is a rolling 13 mile loop. Caution-no roads are closed to traffic so PLEASE keep your eyes open at all times. One small section does use a major road so please be aware of your surroundings, and you must stay to the far right at all times unless you are trying to pass someone. When passing another rider, please look behind you to make sure it is clear to pass. If you get passed, please do not try to stay with that rider. There must be at least a couple bike lengths between all riders. We will have motorcycles riding around to make sure no drafting is occurring. Must wear your race number to show that you are a race participant.

Run - Course is a rolling 5k with a big hill towards the end. No headsets of any kind are allowed, if you are found with them on, you will not get a finishing time! Water stations will be available in Transition Area and near the halfway point on the run. Must wear your race number to show that you are a race participant.

Team Triathlon: Minimum age requirements to participate in the triathlon is 16 years old.

Teams may consist of up to 3 members. Separate registrations are required for each team member and all team members will receive a race t-shirt (while supplies last). You will stage in the “Team Staging Area”. Each team member MUST stay in the staging area until teammate tags the next team member.

Duathlon (2 Mile Run, 13 Mile Bike, 5k Run):

The first run portion of the race consists of 2 miles (same course as the Walk). Start for the duathlon is at 7:55AM and will be at the top of the transition area where the 5k and 2 mile walk starts. Once you run back into the park you will be directed to the transition area to complete the same 13 mile bike course the triathletes complete. After the bike portion you will complete the same 5k course as the triathletes.
