Course Info: The swim is a 1.2 mile rectangular loop in the brackish Choptank River. It is well-marked by
bright orange buoys at the turns and yellow tetrahedron buoys. The swim course ending,
leading to the up to the Transition area is marked by a finish line chute of orange buoys. The route and start time could change as race day approaches due to weather and/or tidal
conditions. Water temperature in June has ranged from 72-76℉. Water temp in 2010 was a record, 79.6℉. The swim will be an “in water” start. There will be motorized craft, kayak support and a dive team to assist during the swim. If, during the swim, you are unable to continue, you may swim to shore or remove your swim cap, and wave it in the air to be picked up by a boat. Be sure to notify a race official at the Swim Finish Area and surrender your timing chip. If you drop out of the swim, you cannot continue with the bike or run segments due to medical concerns and USAT rules.
The bike is 56 miles, mostly through the scenic, dry, hot and often windy terrain of The
Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge. Winds have been clocked at 30+ mph! There are 4 aid stations at about 8-10 mile intervals to support your efforts, offering Spring Water and Gatorade Endurance, bananas and porta-pots. Public urination is prohibited, and could result in disqualification. The route is marked “EM” with white spray paint every 10 miles and the turns are marked in yellow. Please familiarize yourself with the route as it is the athleteʼs ultimate responsibility to know the course. The course is not closed to traffic. Penalty tents will be clearly marked and will be located at mile 20, mile 40 and in the corral leading back to transition.
The run is flat out and back on a 13.1 mile loop on mostly rural, hot unshaded roads. There are 13 aid stations to support your efforts, offering Spring Water, Gatorade, Power Gel, Bananas, Pretzels/Saltines, Pepsi, LOADS of ICE, snow cones (at run turn around) Advil, Vaseline, and Porta Johns. There is also an aid station located at the run start out of transition. The course is marked at each mile on race day with green paint and yellow signage, but is not marked beforehand. There will be a lead cyclist on the run and mobile medical and radio support. Please familiarize yourself with the course as it is ultimately the athleteʼs responsibility to know all courses. Be prepared for wind, sun and heat. Wear a hat and sunscreen.
