COURSE DETAILS

 

SWIM: Race start is time-trial style in 5 second intervals. Racers are organized into "flights" which are seeded by self-reported 100-meter swim times. Flights are organized and staged in the field house to reduce on deck waiting. Racers will swim in a serpentine style across ten 50-meter lanes.

BIKE and RUN: Courses will be opened to traffic & participants are expected to follow all rules of the road. Course marshals & Hobart Police will be at busy intersections to assist with traffic control. There will be 5 water stops during the 5K run.

FINISH: All finishers will cross the finish line on the 50-yard line at Brickyard Stadium.
