OFF ROAD AQUABIKE: The 14 mile Off-Road Cycle is a fun and challenging clock-wise loop around Hagg Lake. You will be required to manage steep climbs, descents, tree roots, branches, dirt, mud and rocks. It is ok to get off your bike and walk or carry it through challenging areas that may be above your current fitness or experience level. There will be some points where you will come off the trail and onto the road for a section. Be sure to watch for vehicles so you can safely enter the road and ride defensively. At each road section, there will be markings to indicate you are on course and markings to get you back onto the trail. It is important to know that the first few miles of the course are the most challenging and technical so once you get through that area, it will become less technical.

OFF ROAD HALF MARATHON TRAIL RUN

NOTE: Our OffRoad Triathlon is sanctioned by USAT so all USAT Rules and Guidelines apply. The most signifcant diffferences for an Off-Road Triathlon compared to a Road Triathlon are as follows:

Legal Bikes: Only mountain bikes are legal for competition. Cyclo-cross bikes are not allowed. No drop handlebars are allowed. No aero bars are allowed. All bikes must have 26”, 27.5” or 29” wheels. Bar extensions or grips off the handlebars may not exceed five inches (5”). Any/all bar ends must be capped. Be sure you have the correct tires to manage challenging terrain including steep climbs and descents, branches, roots, rocks, dirt and mud.

Passing: Lapped riders must yield to overtaking riders. Riders should voice the command “On your left,” when overtaking another. It is the responsibility of faster rider to overtake safely. Slower riders must yield to the passing rider on the first command. In the event two riders are racing for position, the leading rider does not have to yield position to the challenging rider. However, a rider may not bodily interfere with or impede another rider’s progress.

Course: An Off-Road Triathlon often has many trail junctions. You are resonsible for understanding the course and how it will be marked and paying attention at all intersections to assure you stay on course. It is suggested that you slow down at all upcoming intersections to minimize any wrong turns and assure you stay on course with the least amount of back-tracking. Along the Hagg Lake course, you will always have the Lake on your Right and the Road on your left so although you may get off course, you won’t get too lost for too long. If you haven’t seen a course marking in about a 1/2 mile, turn around to find your last course marking.

Drafting: Drafting is allowed.

Aid Stations

Water/Electrolyte Aid stations: Sprint athletes will have access to water stations twice on the run course. There is a bathroom option at Vancouver Lake near the turn-around and multiple bathrooms will be available at the transition area.
