Event Location & Directions – Lake Wedington Recreation Area. The park is located 13 miles from Fayetteville. Use 15689 Lake Weddington Entry Rd, Fayetteville, Arkansas 72704 to obtain directions. From packet pickup (Lewis & Clark Outfitters). Click on the following link – Directions

Swim Course – (1,000 yards) The swim will take place in Lake Wedington. The course is a point to point in the shape of a rectangle. Buoys will be on the right. Click here for a PDF map. The average water temperature in late June is 85 degrees.

Transition – A single transition area. The transition from swim to bike will include a 200 meter slightly uphill run. Click here for a PDF map.

Bike Course – (19 miles) The bike course is a local favorite of both triathletes and cyclists. The course is on newly paved roads with a rolling terrain. The toughest hill on the course comes at the six mile mark. Weaver Hill starts and finishes gradually, but has a steep section in the middle. After this .5-mile climb, the course is fast with just a few rollers. Click here for a PDF map with course profile.

Run Course – (4 miles – same map as Swim course) The run is a rolling, partially shaded, two-loop course on paved roads completely inside the park which provides great spectator viewing. There is one tough hill on each loop that was given several names, but none are worthy or suitable for print. This year we’ll have the “crazies” at the top of the hill to cheer you on. You don’t want to miss the party!
