After a 750 meter swim in the James River athletes will ride 20K over great pavement along Rt. 5 in James City County. Once you have laced up your running shoes you’ll be treated to a pancake flat 5K on an asphalt bike path.

Be sure to even get in a day or two early to get your race packet, check out the race site and experience experience all that the greater Williamsburg area has to offer, including modern attractions, amusements, and historical sites from Jamestown to Yorktown.

Course Details:

Swim: The swim course is a 750 meter rectangular course in the brackish James River. The start and finish alternate each year between the beach adjacent to the Ferry and the beach just downriver from the 4-H Center. The water temperature is expected to be in the upper 70’s. A preliminary water temperature will be posted on the website the Thursday prior to the event. An official reading will be taken race morning.

Bike: The bike course is very fast and flat. This is an out and back course. Just prior to the turnaround point athletes will exit Rt. 5 onto a 12 foot wide freshly paved bike path to get to the turnaround point and resume the return section on Route 5.

Run: The run is pancake flat and is on an asphalt bike path that parallels the bike course. There will be an aid station at the start of the run and at the turnaround point. Aid stations for the sprint will have water and ice.

Post Race Food: Pizza and beer will be provided to all athletes along with late season melons and other goodies.
