Swim

The swim takes place in the indoor pool at Appleby College.  Lifeguards will be on deck at all times.  Athletes will swim 2 per lane. There will be a maximum of 10 athletes per wave. One parent or guardian must accompany participants of the 3-5 age group in the water and on foot for the bike and run.  All athletes may use water wings or a life jacket. Life jackets will be supplied.  Flutter boards or flippers are not permitted. It is expected that athletes 6 years of age and older will not require assistance but special arrangements can be made.   Contact us with special requests or for specific details on the swim.

Bike

The bike course is a loop (with older age groups doing multiple loops) on a closed road on school campus.

**The bike course is best suited to mountain style bikes as there are 6 speed bumps approximately 150m apart. Athletes will be instructed by volunteers to slow down at each bump.The speed bumps are not typical but are wide with a flat 2′ top and easy to negotiate with reduced speed.

Run

The run course will take place on the very scenic running trail around campus. There will be one water station on the run course for all age groups.
