The Race Course

order is determined by the times entered on the registration form with

faster swimmers being sent off first. Please try to be as accurate as

possible when you estimate your time for the 250 yard swim.

The bike course is a scenic, out and back route on rolling terrain.

The run is out and back with a little more

uphill on the way out than on the way back.

Race Venue Activities





Race Divisions and Awards


Standard USA Triathlon age group divisions in five year increments are employed for this event, for example: 30 to 34 years, 35 to 39 years, etc. Age group is determined by age as of December 31, 2017. There is a Clydesdale category for men who weigh 220+ pounds and an Athena category for women who weight 165+ pounds. Also there is a relay category for three person teams.

Awards are given to the top three finishers in each age group, and in the Clydesdale and Athena divisions, and to all three members of the top male relay team, top female relay team, and mixed relay team. And a random award or two may be given out at the race director's discretion.
