Course Info: SWIM COURSE
The swim course is 600 yards in Lake Guntersville. The swim start and swim finish side by side behind the Guntersville Recreation Center. The course is straight out from shore and back. You will swim counter clockwise and keep buoys on your LEFT until you get to the swim exit. Finish the swim behind the host facility, Guntersville Recreation Center and run through a grassy area a short distance to the transition area. You enter the swim based on your race number, from lowest to highest number. The race numbers are assigned based on your estimated swim time this year. Swimmers will be started approximately every 3 seconds.
Your racking position in transition is also organized by your race number.
There will be no changing of start position on race day. Race numbers are assigned on the Thursday morning before the race date. All registrants after that time will have the UPPER numbers and be starting at the rear, sorry, no exceptions.
The bike course is a 16.2 mile loop with a mix of residential and rural roads. It is flat and fast, with only a couple SMALL rolling hills. This course has only right hand turns, so do not turn unless it is marked, there is a sign, or a volunteer clearly tells you to turn.
The run course is 3 miles out-and-back on a paved running trail that winds along Lake Guntersville. This is one flat and fast run course! Please try to stay to your left on the running trail going out and coming back to avoid running into others.
More: We will be giving traditional tie-dye beach towels and a "trophy type" recognition award to all award winners, along with Gift Cards by ACME Multisports and product by Hammer Nutrition.
