Sprint Course: 14miles  Main entrance to the park, and exit the park, turning LEFT.  The first 1/2-mile is flat, followed by a RIGHT turn on Hoffman St. and up a challenging 1/4-mile climb to turn LEFT on Ridge Road.  On Ridge Rd, you will face a gradual climb followed by rolling hills for 5 miles. Quick LEFT will occur after a short but steep downhill grade, then flat to the halfway point.  After turning left on East Lake Rd. the return will be rolling to flat road coming back to the transition area in the park to start the run.


Intermediate Course: 25miles Course closely follows 2 loops of the Sprint course: From the park: left on E. Lake Rd., right on Hoffman Rd, left on Ridge Rd., left on E. Lake, left on Chard Rd. (instead of Hoffman), left on Ridge Rd., left on E. Lake, right into the park.


Maps will be in transition race morning.


Each contestant is responsible for repair/maintenance of his/her bike.  Bike Loft East, Neutral Race Support will be on course but will be helping athletes as they see them and may be a while to come and help you so be prepared to fix most of your mechanical issues.



Run course is an out and back through the village of Cazenovia, one loop for each race distance (not a double loop for the Intermediate 10k). Aid stations will be setup along the run course, with water & GU Energy Products, at the first quarter mile, 1.5 & 2.5 mile mark (approx.). Runners will pass these stations twice for the Intermediate race so you’ll have 6 stations for the Int & 4 for the Sprint.
