Olympic Triathlon and AquaBike

Swim Course:The swim is a 1500m course in the clean, clear waters of West Hill Lake, which has one of the highest water ratings in the state. Swim waves start three minutes apart from the beach at Brodie Park. The swim is a counter-clockwise triangular course of 750 meters with the athletes exiting the water and completing a second loop followed by a 1/4 mile uphill run to the Transition. (Bring a pair of shoes to leave at the waterfront; you don't want to make this run barefoot)

Bike Course:Bike a beautiful loop course along back roads and wide shouldered main roads with a screaming downhill at the start and a rather painful uphill at the end. In between, the course rolls without any major up or downhills. The course measures 24.8 miles.

Participants in the AquaBike competition will complete the event after the bike. Finish times are recorded as participants cross the timing mat as they enter transition. Finishers can make their way to the Finish Line for their race medals.

Run Course:The hilly 10K run course takes place completely in a rural neighborhood on quiet, well-shaded, rolling streets.
