The swim is marked on the map as the triangular route, (longest leg parallel the shore to avoid the morning sun in the East) in the waters of Lake Thompson. In place of the swim, a substitute 1/2 mile kayak option is available. Participants will then jog from the beach to the transition area, and walk their bikes outside of the transition area and mount to ride the 10k bike marked by the long purple stretch. Upon completing the bike portion dismounting outside of the transition area they will return the bikes to their start point on the grass and begin the 5k run, marked by the green stretch. The race will finish across the finish line down the entrance to Holiday Acres with all participants being sure to CROSS THE FINISH LINE, next to the timing booth to be sure your time is recorded and your timing chip taken off and returned after crossing!!!
