The GraniteMan Triathlon with its 400 yd swim - 6.5 mile bike and 2 mile run course is a Super Sprint Triathlon designed for triathletes to conquer and feel good about. Swim in Folsom Lake, on scenic roads closed to traffic, and run on trails around the lake. Duathletes substitute a 2 mile run for the swim - and both Triathletes and Duathletes receive the GraniteMan Finisher Medal.
Swim - The race starts from the Granite Beach in Folsom Lake with a 400 yard swim from the beach area. The swim course will be a triangular course marked by the large white triangular buoys. Water temperature should be approximately 56 degrees. Wetsuits are recommended. The swim will exit the lake and head up the beach and on a grassy path to the transition area located in the parking area.
The 6.5-mile bike course is a course located entirely within the park on roads closed to traffic. The bike course is windy and has several sharp small hills and tight turns. It is STRONGLY recommended that you ride the course ahead of time. Caution is advised on several of the turns as they wind through the hills and oak trees that surround Folsom Lake. After the second loop you will return into the transition area. Course maps will be available on race morning at Registration. The Bike course will Not have an aid station. Water and Clif Electrolyte Beverage, along with Clif Shot Energy gels will be available in the transition area.
The 2-mile run course leaves transition and runs on single-track trails along the lake back towards Beals Point. The out and back course has aid stations that will be stocked with water, Clif Beverage, and Clif Shot Energy gels. The finish is back at the start area at the Granite Beach. ALL athletes must wear their race number on the front of their body during the run and have it when crossing the finish line.
The Transition area will be on a first-come basis, with the exception of Reserved Bike Racks for TRI Clubs. The transition area at all TBF Racing events is for athletes only. All non-athletes must remain outside of the transition area at all times on race day. Bodymarking will be take place at the entrance to the transition area and must be completed before you enter the transition area.
