Olympic Triathlon & AquaBike

Swim Course: The swim is a 1500m course in the clean, clear waters of West Hill Lake, which has one of the highest water ratings in the state. Bring your shoes because there is a 1/4 mile uphill run to the bike transition!

Participants in the Aqua Bike competition will complete the event after the bike. Finish times are recorded as participants racks their bikes and make it to the Finish Line.  There are no relay team entries for the AquaBike.

Bike Course: Bike a beautiful loop course along back roads and wide shouldered main roads with a screaming downhill at the start and a rather painful uphill at the end. In between, the course rolls without any major up or downhills. The course measures 24.8 miles.
