This race has it all! Welcome.... Join Us..... WE are here to make you a better triathlete.
Swim: The swim will be great for athletes who enjoy a short, out and back open water lake swim. You will keep the buoy to your left. Yes, we said short swim. Roughly 500 yards.
T1 & T2: Transitions will be within the fenced in perimeters of the lake. Athletes will be able to fit 10 bikes per bike rack. Have respect for other athletes when it comes to laying out your transition mats.
The 3.1 mile run along side the lake will approach Cockaponset State Forest before you have to turnaround at the water station. The run is fast, flat and smooth.
