Route information
The Swim:
START: We will have an in-water start. Racers will line up according to ability. There are places where you can touch the bottom at the start. Everyone (all men and women) will start in the same wave unless otherwise directed. Should we need to start in waves, we will start the men first and the women afterwards
COURSE: See the course maps. The courses will be marked with large buoys.
DISTANCES:
- The 5000m Swim begins with a 500m 1/2 lap and then 6 laps on a 750m loop.
- The 3000m Swim is 4 laps on a 750m loop.
- The 2000m Swim begins with a 500m extension and then 2 laps on a 750m loop.
- The 1500m Swim is 2 laps on a 750m loop.
- The 750m Swim is 1 lap on a 750m loop.
- The beginner swim is a point to point swim one way down the beach in shallow water.
AID STATION: There is 1 Aid Station for the 3k and 5k swim. To access the aid station you must swim to the table, access your aid and then return to the swim course. You can leave your own aid at the station. We will provide water and gels.
TO TRANSITION & OPEN SWIM FINISH: Once you have completed your swim, exit the water and run up the beach to the transition area or the finish line. Follow the cones, chalk and signs.
SWIM CUT OFF: Everyone must have completed the swim course by 10:00am. This should give everyone plenty of time to complete this segment of the race.
The Aquabike
This is a swim and bike only event. You must enter the transition area, rack your bike and then proceed to the finish line. Aquabikers will exit the transition area through run out and then proceed to the finish line.
The Aquathon
This is a swim and run only event. You must enter the transition area after your swim, get your running gear and then proceed to the run course. At the end of your run you must cross the finish line.
The Duathlon
This is a run, followed by a bike and then another run. You must enter the transition area between events. The duathlons will start in a separate location from the swim; the location varies by venue. Duathletes should meet at the duathlon start for their pre-race meeting and event start.
Bike:
  • WHAT BIKE TO USE: You can ride most any upright human powered bike in the race including but not limited to road bikes (10 speed), mountain bikes, & hybrid bikes.

  • DRAFTING IS NOT ALLOWED: Please refer to the USAT triathlon rules for more information.
  • COURSE MARKINGS: The bike course is marked with signs and cones. There will be a sign at each turn, so if you do not see a sign, please proceed straight. All turns are marked with signs. We DO NOT make any marks on the roadway surface, so please ignore all paint on the road surface. These are from other races and may take you off course.
  • SAFETY: Additionally there will be local law enforcement at all turns so that you can proceed without stopping. The roads are open to traffic. You have the right of way, but that does not mean the cars will know that, so be alert and be safe.
  • Please ride in the right lane of the road at all times and be sure you ride to the right of that lane so other cars and riders can safely pass you during the race.
  • Should you get a flat or have an accident, please alert the next rider so they can alert our staff, volunteers or law enforcement at the next turn.
  • Beginner triathletes will have a unique course so please study the race map. This course will be 1 out and back.
  • Sprint triathletes, duathletes and aquabikers will complete 1 lap on the 12 mile course.
