This is a third year event packed with even more excitement than previous years. The swim starts out on a custom built and carpeted ramp for ease into and out of the very calm “L” shaped lake. Both the Sprint and Olympic course are out and back keeping all buoys on the right. When you return to shore you will exit the same ramp as you entered which is deep enough into the water that you will swim right on it. After making the run to transition you will exit T1 and head out HWY 140 for the bike course. There are a few rolling hills on the course, but it is mostly flat and very fast. After the bike you will enter T2, then head out on a fairly unique run. For the sprint course you will be within the park the whole time running on both trail, and small gravel road to complete an out and back “looped” 3.1 mile run course.There are a couple good hills within the sprint run course. The olympic will head out of the park around 1.2 mile mark onto county roads. This course adds a couple hills, but is a nice way to burn off those middle miles with a little more speed. You will run DOWN the famous “red brick hill,” then head gradually back up to the park. Once on HWY 140 we will have a 4 foot coned section of the rode to use as a running lane. Once you return to the park you will turn back in to the trail and follow it around to the finish. This course is a great balance of challenge and opportunity for speed, especially on the longer course. Both courses have seen bike speeds over 25 MPH, and both have seen sub 6 minute running paces. This is one of the more unique courses in the area, and you will not want to miss out!
