After that you bomb out of Athens and it's all flat and fast along the Hocking River as you make your way to the little town of Chauncey before picking up the Hocking/Adena Bikeway for the final 12k all the way back to the main staging area via the west side of Peden Stadium which sits across the road from the transition area in front of the Aquatics Center. The race finishes with an out and back 5k course which passes by Peden Stadium on the east side before heading east on to the Hocking/Adena Bikeway and passing by the OU Golf Course and giving participants spectaculars views of the Hocking River on the left and the OU campus on your right. This is a MUST-DO race for all Ohio multisport enthusiasts.
