COURSES:

SWIM: The 1.2 swim course is a simple "out and back" in the fantastic waters of Blue Lake in Newburgh, IN.  A lifeguard and kayaker(s) will be on site and transition will be located at the Blue Lake boat ramp.  For a map you can click the link below.

SWIM COURSE

BIKE:  The bike course traverses lightly traveled county roads throughout Warrick and Spencer Counties.  The 56 mile route is an "out and back" course with 3 aid stations, giving you the opportunity to rehydrate and refuel 6 times.  You will encounter an aid station approximately every 10 miles.  The bike course offers up a mix of terrain featuring sections of rolling hills, downright hilly sections, and plenty of "flat as a pancake" sections to recover.  Just as importantly, the bike course is very exposed so be prepared for the heat.  As a special note, both the bike and run courses are "open" courses so there will be traffic on these roads.  Please use good judgement when navigating these routes.  For a map you can click the link below. 

BIKE COURSE

RUN: The 13.1 mile run course is an "out and back" with aid stations placed every mile.  There is some light rolling terrain and a slight long grade to climb out of transition yet the majority of the run course is flat.  Like the bike course, the run route is fully exposed with little shade to be found.  We'll have plenty of ice and cooling sponges on hand to help keep you cooled down.  For a map you can click the link below.

RUN COURSE

DUATHLON 5K Leadoff:  For those doing the duathlon, the 5K route will be announced at a later date. 
 
AQUABIKE - You will complete the 1.2 mile swim and 56 mile bike.  
 
TEAMS:
You may sign up to complete this race as a team.  A team can consist of 2 or 3 individuals and only one person can complete each discipline.

SUMMARY:  Typical triathlon / duathlon /aquabike rules will apply.  We will cover the highlights at our pre-race meeting.  The Southern Indiana Triathlon Team reserves the right to pull anybody from the race for safety and medical purposes if necessary.  Safety and well being is priority one.  As a reminder, there is an 8 hour cutoff time to complete the event.  Event updates will be sent as they come available.  You will also receive a pre-race email approximately 5 days before the event with any last minute information and race day instructions.   Train well and we hope to see you there!
