    TRANSITION

    The transition area is on the grass area between the lake and Parking Lot B. The transition area is fenced off and secured on race day with paid security staff at each exit.
    Athletes are required to show their numbered athlete wristband to enter transition race morning and to exit with their bikes when leaving transition.
    Transition will include athlete specific toilets, penalty/relay tent and bike racks numbered for bike placement. Racks are laid out per race distance and age group within that event to ensure a fair transition.

    SWIM COURSE
    This course is a one loop course for the Sprint and two loops of the Sprint course for the Standard distance race.  The Half Iron and Aquabike are two loops of an extended Standard swim course.  Certified Lifeguards and boat, kayak and paddle board support will be on the course to ensure athlete safety.
    The course is clockwise with swimmers keeping the buoys on their right.
    The two main corner turns will be marked with large yellow buoys and the markers along the course will be orange.   Standard and Half Iron athletes DO NOT exit the water to head out on the second lap of the course as they swim around the yellow buoy located about 20 m off the shore.
    The start will be in the water with swimmers in waist deep water.

    BIKE COURSE

    Due to last minute, unscheduled construction and last years’ flood damage repairs, our course will be slightly different from the traditional course. These changes are in final approval and will be confirmed in your Athlete Guide the weekend prior to race day.


    The Run Course

    The run course is a one loop course for the Sprint and a two loop course for the Standard distance.
    BELOW: The start of the run course is along the Cultus Lake Path.
    PLEASE NOTE: Runners only run in one direction, east towards the boat launch, to start each lap of the course.  Runners return to the finish along 1st Avenue and DO NOT come back on the pathway.

    BELOW: Athlete #536, not sure who it was but he ran kind of Ugly!

    1st Avenue is a one way street, runners will be running the same direction as vehicle traffic. Athletes participating in the Sprint distance will run around the corner at the end of 1st Avenue and proceed through the finish chute and Standard distance athletes will turn left for their second loop just before the end of 1st Avenue and return to the Lakeshore path and head out for a second lap.

    Running down 1st Avenue and headed towards the Finish!
