Course Info: The triangular swim will take place in Lake Hickory. By this time of year, the water should be in the high 70ís to low 80ís which should provide a welcome relief to the warm midsummer days. No wake, no current, just a nice easy swim. We will utilize a multiple wave start which should provide enough spacing for newer and experienced swimmer alike. Exiting the lake, there will be an approx. 50 yard jog into the transition area.
The bike course is a 2 loop ride which could best be described as rolling. Surprisingly, although the area is known for itís hilly terrain, the bike course is absent any major climbs, with a nice mix of up and down rolls, but does provide some nice countryside views.
For the run, you will exit the park in the same manner as during the bike. The course is best described as rolling with the only climb coming during the first mile as you exit the park (which also means that the last mile is mostly down hill). The entire course should prove to be enjoyable for both the beginner and experienced triathlete alike.
The course revolves around a transition area on the Lake Hickory waterfront. The same transition area will be utilized for the entire race. The transition area will open at 5:00am on race day; ALL bikes must be set and ALL athletes must be out of the transition area before it closes at 7:15am
