SPRINT SWIM COURSE - 800m

Expected water temperature for the race is between 58 & 65 degrees.  Wetsuits are highly encouraged. We do abide by the USAT rules for wetsuit usage, which allows wetsuits to be used in water temperatures up to and including 78 degrees Farenheit. Between 78 and 84 degrees, wetsuits may be used, but participants will not be eligible for age group awards. Elites and Pros may only wear wetsuits in water temperatures up to and including 68 degrees. 

The swim will be a triangular course (see map below).  Athletes will begin the race in the water or on the boat ramp depending on the water level on race day.  Wave information including swim start times can be found on our schedule. Once the swim begins, swimmers will proceed from the channel, veering right to the first large buoy. The course will be run in a counter-clockwise direction.  Once you hit the first large buoy, turn left and swim to the second large buoy. Remember to keep all buoys on your left.  At the second large buoy, turn left again and head for the finish.  You do not need to round any buoys as you come back into the channel - just make the turn and head to the boat ramp and swim finish.  For those athletes that would like help in removing their wetsuits, volunteers will be available for support.  A designated area will be marked for this purpose.


SPRINT BIKE COURSE – 12 miles (Cut-off time 12:00 pm)

This course is fast with a nice climb!!! Below is a turn-by-turn description of the course:
• 0.0 Start at the Fool Hollow Lake boat dock.
• Turn right onto Old Linden
• Turn right onto SR260
•  Turn right onto Lone Pine Dam Road.

SPRINT RUN COURSE – 3.1 MILES (Cut-off time 3:30 pm)

The Sprint run course takes athletes along a nicely groomed, scenic trail around Fool Hollow Lake and then into the campgrounds for a tour and lots of encouragement from the campers.  From there you’ll follow the roads back to the start/finish area, and breathe a sigh of relief that you’ll take that right turn to the finish line instead of the left to head out on a second lap like the DeuceMan participants!
