The race begins with a 750m swim in the Penn State outdoor pool set up for “long course” (50 meters per length). We will have 6 to 7 heats with the fastest athletes in the last heat. *Note: No wet suits.
After picking up your bike in the nearby, secured transition area, you will complete a 20k (12 mile), out-and-back route. The course will take you by Beaver Stadium and out past the University Park Airport.
After returning to the transition area, athletes will complete at 5k (3.1 mile) out-and-back with a small douple loop run on paved, moderately rolling roads, adjacent to campus.
**It is a fun course that is perfect for first timers and experienced triathletes alike.
