EVENT STARTS AUGUST 5, 2017
Swim- a very chilly 1000m dip in Peterson Lake. Being sent off at 3 second intervals, swimmers will embark upon a 1k out and back swim course. Competitors will be seeded first by mountain bike ability and then by estimated swim time.
Transition- after exiting the water athletes will have to trudge 600m up the hill to the transition area at the Nordic Center parking lot. This little run....hurts.
Bike- the 23km bike is two 11km loops through the trails of the Eldora Nordic Center. For a good chunk of the course there is the luxery of double track; ample room for passing. Nothing too technical but a couple of climbs tough enough to annoy you.
Run- The 7km run course is considered to be one of, if not the, top XTERRA run courses out there. A ton of single track, swamp track, straight up track, and barely existant track.
