After our latest site visit, discussion with the County and City, and two athlete surveys, we have made the following updates to the courses:
Short Sprint Triathlon - No changes Bike map
Long Sprint Triathlon, Duathlon, and Aquabike - Bike is now 12 miles and encompasses 1 mile out, 2 laps of 5 miles, and 1 mile back. Updated Map
Duathlon - First Run will be ½ mile out and back on the pier (AWESOME RUN) and the 2nd run will be 4 miles like the Long Sprint Triathlon. First run map
International Triathlon - Bike is now 22 miles and consists of 1 mile out, 4 laps of 5 miles, and 1 mile back. Updated Map
At the far end of the bike course you will encounter a large u-turn sign and a timing line to count your laps.
On your way back you’ll see a LAP U-TURN/FINISH STRAIGHT sign. U-turn there if you need to make additional laps.
YOU AND ONLY YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE TO KNOW THE COURSE! You need to know what lap you are on while on the bike. (tip-use a bike computer. If you are in the International distance look for it to show 20+ miles then don’t do another lap!)
You need to know where to u-turn on the run:
1. Short Sprint u-turns at the first water station (just past mile 1) Map
2. Long Sprint and Duathlon u-turn at the 2nd water station (just past mile 2) Map
3. International u-turns at the 3rd water station (just past mile 3) Map
There will be a timing mat on the run course to ensure that everyone does the proper distance.
