Course Details

Swim – 1500m

single-loop-1500mThe swim will take place off the beach in front of Main Beach Area. The course will begin about 50-75m off shore at a point where the water is thigh-deep. The swim courses will be triangular with the first leg of the swim covering the angled side of the course. Swim buoys will be kept to the left as you swim. Expect some chop, so be sure to landmark on a regular basis. Turn buoys will be the large 60″ buoys and intermediate buoys will be the smaller 40″ buoys. There will be at least 50-75m of water running before you reach the beach. The run-out travels straight up the beach, crosses Beach Drive before reaching the Transition Area. Water temperature is, on average, between 68F and 76F.

Bike – 40km

New for 2017 we have revised the course to be a scenic out-and-back.

The bike course follows Mosely which becomes Main Street as it crosses the bridge over the Notawasaga River in a dedicated bike lane. You will be using the SAME LANE exiting the race site as returning to the race site. RIDE WITH CARE while in the bike lane.

Athletes will be traveling on the East side of the bridge while leaving from, as well as returning to, the Transition Area. Once you have made the left turn onto River Road East the course takes athletes out to the quieter rural section of the course where athletes will make their way out towards Concession Rd 4 along some rolling hills, make the turn-around and complete the return portion of the course. 

Run – 10km

The Run Course is TWO (2) Loops of 5km.  The Lap/Finish point will be adjacent to the Finish Line on Beach Drive

 

There will be Aid Stations approximately every 1.25km serving Water and F2C HYDRA-DURANCE™ – click HERE for more information on F2C HYDRA-DURANCE™.
