SWIM COURSE

A counter-clockwise 800yd triangle in the calm waters of Stissing Lake. 

Wetsuits are legal but not mandatory.

You are welcome to wear a personal swim buoy if you are more comfortable.  We would ask that you start at the back of the pack so as to not interfere with other swimmers.

BIKE COURSE

This hilly, winding course will make you wish you had time to stop and take in the views.  Markings on the pavement at each turn as well as lots of signs and helpful volunteers will take you on a 12.6 mile hilly ride.  

There are no aid stations on the bike course.  There is one located inside of transition before you head out on the bike and run.
