The Goose Pond Island Half Iron & Frantic Frog Sprint Triathlons return to the Goose Pond Colony Resort, located in Scottsboro, Alabama on Sunday, May 30, 2021. We invite all to come enjoy the beauty and challenge awaiting in our host Northern Alabama venue!

Please see our Covid Safety Tab on main web page for latest safety procedures for each venue / event. These will be updated as conditions dictate. There are currently no restrictions for these events but safety procedures will be in place. Size limitations noted for each race are based on transition capacity.   

The 1.2 mile swim will be in the pristine waters of Lake Guntersville. The half iron distance triathlon will have time-trial starts beginning at 7:00 AM Central. Course will follow the buoys in a loop course. The protected waters of Lake Guntersville will have little or no current and should offer a great opportunity for a personal record swim time. Swim Map Link

The 56 mile bike makes use of the natural terrain of the area. Scottsboro is located in the Sequatchie Valley in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. Course will exit Goosepond Colony and bike towards the historic Jackson County Courthouse. Once past the courthouse square, cyclists will head out to the surrounding countryside for a fast ride along rural roads. The bike route will be fairly flat and fast. Map Link

The 13.1 mile run will leave transition and run along the golf course before turning into the campground beginning two 5.3 mile loops. Runners return down Ed Hembree Drive to finish by transition. The run provides views of Lake Guntersville as well as plentiful wildlife. Aid stations will be passed 16 times. Map Link

Note: we are instituting "cut off times" for 2021 for the safety of participants, volunteers and support staff - limits noted are from the start of final starter: swim 1:15, bike 5:15 hours, run 1/2 way point 7:15 - finish line, music, etc. will be in place for all finishers - venue tear-down may begin depending on severe weather forecast, as in past years. Safety is our first priority. 

Frantic Frog Sprint race includes a 500 meter Swim, 14 mile Bike & 5K run beginning at 8 AM Central. Swim will be a time-trial start at end of pier with a rectangular course & beach exit. Swim: Map Link -  Bike will be an out & back course. Bike : Map Link - Run will also be an out and back route into campground & return to finish by transition. Run: Map Link.
