Swim Course brought to you by Sail Time:
Swim Course: Staged out of Buckroe Beach the swim is in the Chesapeake Bay and features a rectangle swim course. It is a 1 loop course with a short beach run to get to the transition area. The course maps show a clockwise loop, but the direction of the swim will be determined race morning depending on the current. We do not expect it to be Wetsuit legal, but always be prepared!
Bike Course: The bike course is a 2 loop flat course that goes down Mallory and Mercury Streets. The turnaround is now just outside Fort Monroe on the far end and on the near end at the intersection of Mallory and Point Comfort (not near the transition area). This course is very flat and very fast. The road surface is not perfect but it is flat!
Run Course: Fast and flat out and back sums up this course. The first half is along the boardwalk and the back half is along First Street. There will be ice water available 3 times during the run.
