Course Info: SWIM COURSE (300 yards)
The swim is in the 50 yard outdoor pool. You will enter the pool in an "interval start" fashion. Participants line up by race number (beginning with the lowest number to the highest.) Race Numbers are assigned based on your estimated swim time you submitted when you registered. If you would like to start at the back, that is fine. Your racking position in transition is also organized by your race number.
One person at a time enters the pool and begins swimming when given the start command. Swim down the first lane, touch the wall, go under the lane rope, swim down that lane, and continue the same process until you exit after swimming 6 lengths for a total of 300 yards. While you are entering the pool by estimated swim time, someone may need to pass you. We encourage participants to pass at the wall. If someone taps your foot, please stop at the wall and let them go under the lane rope before you. When you exit the pool, volunteers will direct you to the transition area where you will begin your bike segment of the race.
The bike course is a 16.5 mile loop of rolling, mostly rural roads through farms and open land in Wilson County. Roads have a great surface (the park was resurfaced the last week of June 2005) with a rough area of older road surface as you enter back into the park the last three miles. We are still hopeful that this will be paved for 2010!
There are small bridges at around mile 14 and just after mile 15 that will be covered with plywood/carpet. You will be able to ride your bike over these bridges, but we ask that you slow down as you approach. If you are training on the course prior to the race, you can ride over the bridges as they are, but to so with caution. There will be caution signs as you approach during the race. Expect a couple of good hills with nice recovery down hills between miles 3 and 5, and again between miles 8 and 10. One final short steep climb at mile 12 will send you into the park for a mostly flat finish.
The run course is a 3 mile out-and-back course on the state park roads. Not very hilly for most of the course, mostly flat with some slight inclines and rollers and one short steep hill just before the run turnaround.
There will be two aid stations with water and powerade, one about 1/2 way (0.8 miles) to the turnaround, and one at the turnaround. Water and powerade will also be available as you leave the transition for the start of your run.

Directions: Cedars of Lebanon State Park is located approximately 31 miles east of Nashville in Wilson County. It is 6 miles south of I-40 on U.S. Highway 231 (State Route 10). From I-40, take exit number 238, go south on Hwy 231 (State Route 10.) The entrance to the park will be on your left (or on the east side) of Hwy. 231. From the Murfreesboro area, just take Hwy. 231 North to the park. If you are coming from Birmingham or Chattanooga area, you can take the new 840 from I-65 or I-24. 840 is only a couple of miles west I-40 exit 238. OR, for a real short cut....if you are traveling from the Birmingham area or Chattanooga area, or in between...take I-840 from I-65 or I-24, then exit for the Nashville Speedway off of 840. Go to Hwy 231, go north on 231, the park entrance will be on your right within a few miles. This will take at least 10 minutes off of your drive
