Each race will start in four groups (wave start), with the faster swimmers seeded in the earlier waves (please be realistic in your seed time submitted with your race application, there is no wave switching race morning). Competitors must wear the swim cap that will be supplied at check-in.
Sprint Course: 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: 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. No support vehicles are on the course.
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 & Hammer Nutrition 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.
All courses will be GPS’d and spray chalked in mid July. Race day will see volunteers and timing mats or number recorders at turnarounds.
