Swim Course

The swim course is a three sided course in Bare Hill Pond, well marked by bouys. Lifeguards in kayaks will be placed along the course. Enter and exit from the sandy beach. The water temperature is typically in the low to mid 70's at the end of June. The transition area is a .3 mi trot up an asphalt sidewalk alongside Pond Rd. For those who prefer to change into shoes, an area will be marked off at the beach parking lot for footwear.

Bike Course

The bike course is a single loop, primarily right hand turns leaving from the transition area, out through both hilly and flat terrain on rural roads. Road marshals will be placed at all turns. Return to the transition area for the road race. Click Here for a map.
