The 1.5k (.93 mile) swim course will begin at the Lynch Ramp. There will be more than 20 wave starts at 5 minute intervals beginning with Collegiate Men, Collegiate Women, Age Group Men, Team In Training Men, Age Group Women, Team In Training Women and Relay Teams. Swimmers will swim in a clockwise direction on the triangular course. The course will have sailboats, clearly marked, at the corners and there will be course marker buoys and lifeguards on long boards every 100 yards. The swimmers will exit the water, go through the timing area, up the ramp and into the transition area.
The bike course is 40K (24.8 miles) long and should be considered relatively difficult. The bike portion of the course will be marked by Large Green Diamonds.
Cyclist will leave the transition area to the north and proceed directly up "Lynch Hill" (a very steep climb.)
Turn right on San Antonio Drive and head out of the park to Interlake Road.
Turn right on Interlake Road and proceed over rolling hills to the turn-around point at mile 12.4.
Triathletes will return to the park on the same roads. As they re-enter the park, riders turn left and head down Lynch Hill and back to the transition area.
The 10k (6.2 mile) run course is a combination of road and trails through campgrounds and challenging hills. The run portion of the course will be marked by Small Green Diamonds.
Triathletes will depart the transition area to the southwest, and climb the Lynch Ramp stairs
Turn left on the trail below the resort store lawn
Cross the bridge and proceed down the beach access road through "Beach City"
At the base of "Beach Hill," continue straight off of the road and on to the trails along the shoreline (no beach hill this time).
Follow the trails through Harris Creek campgrounds, and proceed past the launch ramp parking lot and onto Lake San Antonio Drive

At Beach Hill intersection leave the road for trails and follow the fire access trail back to Lynch intersection

ARE you prepared? An endurance athlete typically uses up all the energy stores in their muscle within 1-2 hours of exercise. Research clearly shows that with extended endurance exercise, the consumption of carbs during exercise delays the onset of fatigue and extends endurance. For you it can mean the difference between a long race day and a strong finish. Learn how to stay in the race:
