The 250 yard pool swim will take place in the Rex Wellness Center of Knightdale's lap pool. Participants will then make their way to the transition area in the large parking lot to the side of the facility. Brand new bike course that will carry you through the beautiful country side of wake county. This course is 14.6 miles compared to the 12.5 miles in past events. To finish the race, athletes will enjoy a 2 mile run through the neighborhoods in the north eastern most parts of Wake County. There will be a water station as you exit the transition area and at the turnaround on the run. The race will finish up near the transition area. Post race snacks and water will be available at the finish line.
The race course revolves around a transition area next to the Rex Healthcare of Knightdale facility. The same transition area will be used for all phases. The transition area will open at 5:30 am; ALL bikes need to be placed in position before the transition area closes at 7:15am.
All participants must submit the total time it takes you to swim 250 yards for seeding purposes. Being a pool swim with a staggered start, participants are seeded from fastest to slowest by total finish time. By seeding yourself properly, you'll end up swimming near people who swim the same pace as you. This will reduce the number of people who you will need to pass or the number of people who will be passing you.
COVID PRECAUTIONS will be followed while staging the swim and in transition area.
