The transition area will be set up down near the beach house.
The first run leg of the Duathlon will utilize the first mile of the run course. Participants will run out and then back to complete the 2 miles and then continue on the rest of the event with the triathlon participants.
The swim will take place in Eagle Creek Reservoir and start and finish at the beach house. The swim start will consist of a time trial format, based on swimming ability. An Elite Wave will start first. Elite athletes will only be eligible for overall awards, not age group awards.
After the Elite Wave, participants will line up in order of their bib number and enter the water one at a time every two seconds. Your time will not start until you cross the timing mat, just before entering the water.
The bike course will consist of 10 miles through Eagle Creek Park, out to Lafayette Road and back.
The scenic 3 mile run course stays in the park and is an out-and-back that finishes near the beach house.
