Course Maps

    Swim Course

    The swim will be a single lap 750m course

    Bike Course

    The bike course is a four lap bike course with multiple u-turns. While relatively flat, the course is technically challenging. The first and last lap will include a .63 mile section that will bring athletes to and from the marina. Once you leave transition there will be a .05 mile run with your bike to the exit of the marina to the mount line.   Athletes lapped may be removed from the course at the discretion of the officials.

    First Section of Bike Course


    Lap Section of Bike Course

    The 4 laps of the bike will take place on this 2.78 mile course.  The course has two wide U- Turns and can be taken very fast.

    Last Section of Bike Course

    Once an athlete has completed all four laps they will pass by the last U- Turn and finish the way they started back at the marina.  this is a .63 mile downhill.  Athletes will stay to the right as cones will have been put out to separate the run from the bike course.  At the top of the marina athletes will get off of their bikes at the dismount line and run back to transition.

    Run Course

    The run course will be a two loop out-and-back run. This fits with the tradition of draft legal triathlon formatting, and will allow athletes to view their competition throughout the run.
