DISTANCES

The Multisport races start with a 1.25 mile run on MainTrail and the east section of Penn Hills trail. First half mile is open then you enter some single trail winding trails past briar patches and swamps and back into transition. You then head out on a 9 mile road bike course. The bike course is one road (Wells Mill Rd) with just two u-turns but not very flat with lots of rolling hills. Once back into transition, put on the running gear and head out on a 2.25 mile trail run to the lake at Citta Boyscout Reservation. The first mile is main trail then you drop off into a challenging and technical creek path and then loop around the lake before entering the water for a .4 mile swim. During the run around the lake you get a great view of the swim course. Pending water temperature you may have a support bag placed at lake (ie. wetsuits). If water is not cold you will need to carry swim gear to lake with you (ie. Goggles) There will be aid stations on run course. After swim, you run 1.75 miles back to transition through more trails and some foot bridges. You mount your bike for one more 9.0 mile ride on same course. When you return to transition you again gear up for one final 3.1 mile trail run taking to you the finish. The Duathlon is the same course minus the swim. After you run around the lake you return to transition. The 5k Trail Run is the same course as the final stage from the Triathlon/Duathlon.
