Swim Course: The Swim will take place in beautiful Lake Townsend. The water is very clean and clear. Near the swim exit, there is a small island and a long pier which are both perfect for spectating. This unique design of the swim will allow for spectators to be within 15 feet of the swimmers as they finish the swim in the cove of the Lake Townsend Marina. The swim will be a wave start format, with 4 minutes between each wave. We will provide you with a swim cap that corresponds to your wave at packet pick up.
The waves will be as follows:
2. Male, Elite/Masters Elite, and Novice
3. Female and Relay
Bike Course: The bike course is a fabulous one loop course on smooth, rural country roads. It has gently rolling hills, with many more downhills making for a fast course. Traffic is unbelievably light, so it will seem you have the roads to yourself. It runs through the Reedy Fork Neighborhood and into Guilford County. It’s a fast and challenging course with beautiful scenery and many wide roads.
Run Course: The run course is an out and back course. It is completely self contained in Bryan Park. It is largely shaded, as it winds through the Bryan Park Golf Course with the large oak trees lining the road providing beautiful views for participants. It is a relatively flat course with only a few small hills. Aid stations are positioned every 1 mile.
Rules & Guidelines
In the event the race should be canceled for reasons beyond the control of the Race Director or Race Committee (inclement weather or unsafe weather conditions; local, state or national emergency), refunds will not be made, but race packets, including race shirts, will be available at a location to be determined. Information will be available on the race website.
USAT Most Commonly Violated Rules ALL USAT members must show proof of a current membership at packet pick up. If you have recently renewed a membership, then you MUST print out a temporary card or receipt of payment (that shows length of the membership period) to show at packet pick up. We will not take your word for it that your membership is current; you must SHOW us. Failure to do so will result in having to pay the one-day fee of $12.
You can go to the USAT WEBSITE where you can renew your membership or print out a temporary card. You can also renew your membership at packet pick up if that’s easier for you.
If I entered my USAT information when I registered, then why do I need to show my card at packet pick up? USAT rules state that all USAT members must show a valid membership card at packet pick up and failure to do so will result in having to pay the 1-day fee. Our events are sanction by USAT, therefore, we must follow these rules. Our website is not connected to USAT’s website, so the information that you enter when you register could be incorrect. We must physically document the current expiration date of your membership when you pick up your packet as this is the only way we can confirm 100% that your membership is in fact current.
USAT’s “Age Up” Policy:
An athlete’s age for any USAT sanctioned race will be his/her age as of Dec. 31, 2014 . The age he/she is on 12/31 will determine his/her racing age group. If an athlete is due to “age-up” into the next group, it will happen at the beginning of the year, not after the athlete’s birthday. This action aligns regular U.S. age group racing with the method used by USA Triathlon for its National Rankings Program and its new Grand Prix Series.
Example: John Smith is 39 and will turn 40 on November 20, 2014.
John will be considered 40 for all 2014 races – and will race in the 40-44 age group at all 2014 races.
Sally Jones is 29 and will turn 30 on July 3, 2014.
Sally will be considered 30 for all 2014 races – and will race in the 30-34 age group at all 2014 races.

Earlier than 30 days before the event, a request may be made for a 50% refund (this will be 50% of entry fee, excluding any processing fees). Entries CANNOT be transferred or deferred to another event or year. NO EXCEPTIONS will be made to this policy. By registering for this event you agree to this refund policy.
