INTERNATIONAL TRI / AQUABIKE:

International 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. Map of International Swim Course. The average water temperature in early June can range from 75 to 85 degrees.

Transition – A single transition area. The transition from swim to bike will include a 200 meter slightly uphill run. Click Map of Transition.

International 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. Map of International Bike Course.

International Run Course – (4 miles – same map as International 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!
