Event summary
Here are the distances available for Rocketman Triathlon
Olympic Distance
Route information
SWIM: 1500 meters (~1640 yards)
The race features a new swim course for this year, reverting to a traditional 1500 meter swim in the Tenn River. Swim start will be adjacent to transition. All swimmers will be started in waves and swim clockwise around the buoys. Your starting place will be determined by the estimated finish time you provide when you register in imAthlete.
BIKE: 40.9 km (25.4 miles)
The bike course is an out and back (with a short lollipop on the far end) along country roads with lots of police support to control/limit traffic and ensure racer safety. The course is similar to previous year’s route except that we have figured out a way to eliminate the hard U-turn that was previously on old 431. All turns will be controlled by volunteers while major turns while be controlled by sheriff deputies / Huntsville Police.
There will be NO aid stations on the Rocketman bike course. However, our bicycle sponsor (Bicycle Cove) will be on the course providing SAG support
RUN: 10 kilometers (6.21 miles)
The Run Course is an out-and-back along a paved, partially shaded urban greenway, free from traffic hazards with 6 aid stations with water/Powerade provided by our awesome run course sponsor (Fleet Feet of Huntsville). We will have cold washclothes available at all aid stations (while supplies last). Aid stations will be at the following locations:
Mile 0.9, Mile 2.4, Mile 3.0, Mile 3.4, Mile 4.0, Mile 5.2
Note: Slight difference in the “run out” from last year. Participants will run up the sidewalk on the southern side of transition, follow sidewalk to the pavilion, head offroad around the tennis courts, then make a right turn to rejoin the previous year’s course.
