Swim course: Counter clockwise lake swim (water temperature in the low to mid 70’s). All swim distances are one loop courses.
Bike course: The Sprint and My First Tri bike course is a one loop 13.8 mile course. The Olympic bike course is 2-loops of this course. Both courses are flat, fast and scenic. Although these roads are not typically busy with vehicles, this is not a closed course so please ride safely and defensively.
Run course: The Sprint and My First Tri Run 5k and the Olympic 10K courses are flat and fast along the Dike Trail. There is some uneven section of off-road trail so please be careful. Minimalists shoes are probably not ideal for this course.
Sunset 5K/10K Runs: The 5K and 10K courses are flat and fast along the Dike Trail. There is some uneven section of off-road trail so please be careful. Minimalists shoes are probably not ideal for this course.
Water/Electrolyte Aid stations: You will have access to hydration approx every 2 miles. Multiple porta potties and park bathrooms will be available at the transition area.
Kids Triathlon: This will be a FREE, fun and non-competitive event to introduce your kids to the sport of Triathlon. It will include a little swim/splash through the lake, a short bike around Horseshoe Lake park and a final run along the trails. We will still require you to register your child and they will be required to pay the USAT fee since it is a sanctioned event. We will set them up in transition, give them a swim cap, body mark them and make them feel like a real triathlete. They will receive a Finisher’s Tshirt and big Medal BLING so they can feel proud of their accomplishment!
