The Great Escape Triathlon

Sat June 8 - Sun June 9, 2024 Jefferson City, MO 65101 US Directions

The Great Escape Bike Course

The Great Escape Sprint Bike Course takes you from transition at the pool area, through a few hills in town, east across the Moreau River, past the current penitentiary, and back for a 12.6 mile ride.

The Supersprint Bike course follows the same route, but keeps you in Jefferson City, turning around at the intersection of East McCarty Street and Tomahawk Road.


- Follow police officer and flagger directions/instructions throughout the course. From the transition area, go to the right side of the divider on Riverside and Grant and immediately turn right onto Edwards.
- Go to Lincoln St., then turn left onto Lincoln. 
- Follow Lincoln south across High St., turning left onto E. McCarty. 
- Continue east on East McCarty to Tomahawk/Algoa Road. 
- Turn left onto Tomahawk, then an immediate right onto Algoa Rd. 
- Continue on Algoa Rd. to Militia. Turn right onto Militia. 
- Continue on Militia to the end of the overpass (it dead ends) over Highway 50/63. 
- Turnaround. There will be an orange cone with flag at the turnaround. 

This is an out-and-back course with one exception. Where E. McCarty meets E. High at the triangle in front of Warwick Village, please stay right onto E. High, then turn right onto Lincoln. Follow the course back to the transition area. Before entering the transition area, stay right at the concrete divider.

**The supersprint is identical, except your turnaround will be at Tomahawk and Algoa Road. Volunteers will be there to assist you.
