Course Info: The Stanford Treeathlon is a sprint distance triathlon, which consists of 500m swim, 20 km bike and 5km run.
Swim details: A quick, lifeguard-supervised swim through a protected cove of the Port of Redwood City (an offshoot of the San Francisco Bay). The water temperature in February/March can be chilly (low 50s), and a wetsuit is strongly recommended. Personally, we think that you're a few wickets short of a full croquet set if you choose to swim without a wetsuit, but we will allow that option for those who sign an additional waiver indicating that they acknowledge the risks involved.
The swim will start in waves according to division and how gratuitously you lie about your expected finish time.
Concerned about the South Bay water quality? We had a water quality test done on the swim course, and it passed all tests with room to spare!
T1 NOTE: From Swim-Out to the Transition Area is a run of about 300 m. The road will be clean, but if you have tender sensitive feet, you can place shoes or sandals near the Swim-Out to make the short run a little more comfortable.
Bike details: Three fast and flat lollipop loops down Seaport Blvd and around a nearby office park loop. We don't know about you, but we love lollipops.
Run details: Three flat and scenic loops along the bay near Seaport Court.
More: Medals and prizes will be distributed three levels deep in the collegiate, age group and relay divisions. Age group divisions will consist of: 14 and under, 15-19, 20-24, (etc), 60-64, 65 and over.
For everyone else, hard work is its own reward! However, we will also have a totally sweet raffle; this ensures that, even if you don't legitimately earn a prize, you still have a shot at receiving one.
