The swim will leave from the banks of a family farm. It will be a triangular course, 1000 meters long. The water temperature should be about 80 degrees. USAT rules regarding wetsuits will apply, although wetsuits will probably not be required at this time of year! Kayaks and Seadoos will be in the course area to monitor swimmers. The incredibly scenic bike ride will be a 35 km (22 mile) loop with several good climbs, fast downhills, and rolling to flat terrain following the contour of the lake and beautiful Roan Creek. The run will be an out-and-back course of 8 kilometers (5 miles). The course will be in a pastoral farm setting out to the main road, where it will follow the perimeter of the lake for a short distance before the turnaround and back to the finish area.
