Swim Course

The Championship event swim is two 750m counter clockwise loops in Durrance Lake, a small, clear mountain lake, for a total of 1500m. The Sprint event swim is one 750m counterclockwise loop.  Wetsuits are permitted, depending on water temperature on race morning.  Permitting of wetsuits is determined by the head race official and will be announced at approximately 7 am on race morning.

Athletes wishing to swim in skin suits may only do so if they wear the skin suit for the reminder of the race.
Bike Course

The Championship event bike course is 24k made up of two modified loops of a 12k route primarily in the trails of Mt. Work Park, commonly known as “The Dump”. The course follows a variety of double and single track trails with climbs descents, and lots of fast, flowing trails. Be prepared for a challenge. The Sprint bike course is one loop of the same course. Mountain bikes only will be allowed to be used on the bike course. No cross or road bikes allowed.
