Course Information


First Run (Start)
The first run will take place around Lake Andrea on the running path. The start line will be at the finish line, running the course reversed. ALL athletes MUST report to the first run start 15 minutes prior to their scheduled wave start. The Sprint Duathlon course winds counter-clockwise around Lake Andrea, with entry to transition on the south side of the transition area. There will be no aid stations available on the first run course.

The transition area is east of the swim start/finish. Bikes MUST be WALKED in the transition area. Mount and dismount lines are outside the transition area. Bikes MAY NOT be removed from the transition until the last bike has completed the bike course and exited the transition area for the start of the run. Anyone removing a bike from transition before the announcement is made to remove bikes will be automatically disqualified.

The bike course is on gently rolling Village roads with minimal turns. The road surface is a mix of asphalt and concrete. A combination of course marshals and police are stationed throughout the course and at all turns. Each turn is marked with brightly colored duct tape. Bikers are required to wear an approved, strapped helmet and earphones are not allowed. All bikes are required to display a bike number.
