COURSE INFORMATION

Our courses consist of shorter loops inside a controlled area. The distance of our events require extra safety measures be taken to ensure athletes are cared for and able to receive medical help if needed while on course. These shorter loops allow for your family or crew to be much more involved in your race, resulting in an overall more enjoyable experience for athletes and their support crew. 

The courses are inside a state park and are well marked / manned by volunteers during the event. Try it before you bash it - we guarantee you'll find the shorter loops helpful and more enjoyable during your event.

FL Course

SWIM COURSE DETAILS

Doubles: 12 loops / 1.5x: 9 loops / Singles: 6 loops / Half 3 loops

The swim takes place off the beach of Lake Louisa State Park on Lake Louisa, which is considered a shallow lake, with water depths no greater than 8 to 9 feet across the whole lake. The normal water temp for this race has been an average of 65 to 70 degrees, so wetsuits are recommended. 
 

You will swim a 2112 foot/644-meter clockwise out and back pattern around a swim line (swim line length is 1056 feet/322 meters). Half athletes will complete 3 loops; Single athletes will complete 6 loops; 1.5x athletes will complete 9 loops; Double athletes will complete 12 loops. You must wear the colored Mammoth swim cap provided to you during check-in. Timers will be sitting at a table on the shore timing your laps and will observe you with the colored swim cap you are wearing. At the main buoy/turn area, we will have two aid station floats where you can place your water bottles into the cup holes and food items beside them. This will allow you to get your own aid without your support crew having to wade 50 feet or so from shore.
 

A swimmer may use any swim stroke to propel themselves through the water and may tread water or float. You may not use any floatation device, flippers, or fins on the swim. The swim must be completed within 2 hours of race start for the Single and Half athletes (9:00am Friday), within 4 hours of the race start for the 1.5x athletes (11:00am Friday), and within 5 hours of race start for the Double athletes (12:00pm Friday).

BIKE COURSE DETAILS

Doubles: 37 loops / 1.5x: 27 loops / Singles: 18 loops / Half: 9 loops

 

The bike segment takes place inside the park. As it gets dark, you will be required to use adequate lighting (white light) on the front of your bike and a red flashing light on the rear. The front white light should broadcast decently 10’ or more. We also highly suggest a headlamp attached to your helmet. Ensure you have sufficient batteries to last throughout the night. There is electricity available to charge spare batteries inside the race village.

The bike segment is a 6.009 mile (9.670 kilometer) out and back loop. You will start the bike in the village area.

Double athletes will do 37 laps, which means you will have biked 222.347 miles. To make up the remaining 1.652 miles (to equal 224 total), on your first bike lap, you will ride down the road .826 of a mile (there will be a large sign stating “DOUBLE FIRST LAP TURN AROUND HERE”) and you will ride back through the timing station and then start the first of 37 laps.

1.5x athletes will do a beginning 5.76 miles (2.88 out then back through the main timing) and then do 27 loops to equal 168 miles. There will be a large sign stating “1.5x FIRST LAP TURN AROUND HERE”. You will make your way back to the race village then start the first of your 27 laps.

Single athletes will do a beginning 3.6 miles (1.8 out then back through the main timing) and then do 18 laps to equal 112 miles. There will be a large sign stating “SINGLES FIRST LAP TURN AROUND HERE”. You will make your way back to the race village and then start the first of your 18 laps.

Half athletes do not need to do a partial lap.

We have calibrated the course with the same measuring equipment used by the Olympic committee (it is called a Jones Counter) so we are accurate on the mileage. Remember, GPS data from your watch, with long distances and multiple loops, will often be incorrect over time. Our courses are carefully marked and measured. Do not rely on your satellite GPS watch as an accurate measurement.

Road bikes must be in good working order. Remember to inspect your bikes before the race so you do not have any mechanical surprises on the bike course. You may use more than one bike during the race.

You must wear an ANSI/Snell approved bike helmet during the bike course and have it buckled at all times when touching your bike. YOU MAY NOT DRAFT during this event. While on the bike segment, cyclists shall not work together to improve performance, efficiency, or position by teamwork or other joint conduct. All cyclists must assume and maintain a staggered riding position relative to the cyclists directly ahead. A variable time penalty shall be imposed for any violation of this. You may stop or walk your bike, but no time adjustments will be made.

The bike loop is pretty much flat with two medium size hills plus a few other small rollers. The turnaround point is just before the campground. There is a decent size opening in the road giving you a little extra room to make that 180 degree turn and head back to the village. Please be careful making your turn around and be aware of vehicles that may be entering or exiting the campground. We will have course signage out notifying motorists of the event. At the end of the day, cars are bigger than bikes so please stay alert and be aware of your surroundings.

No headphones are allowed. While you may carry a phone, you cannot use it as a communication device.

Single and half athletes must complete the bike segment within 13 hours of the race start (8:00pm Friday), 1.5x athletes within 20 hours of the race start (3:00am Saturday) Double athletes within 26 hours of race start (9:00am Saturday).

RUN COURSE DETAILS

Doubles: 52 loops / 1.5x: 39 loops / Singles: 26 loops / Half 13 loops

The run segment takes place on asphalt road. The run course is a 1.00769 mile (1.621719 kilometer) loop course.

 

Half athletes will complete 13 loops, Single athletes will complete 26 loops, 1.5x athletes will complete 39 loops and Double athletes will complete 52 loops. You must use a flashlight/head light for the run section once it gets dark as well as a flashing red light on your back for greater visibility.

Crew is not allowed to be on course for support. All support must be done within the village. You may stop and rest at any time along the course, but the race clock is still in motion. Athletes may not receive any assistance in the form of transportation. You may not have your support crew pace you during the run. You may, on your last run lap, invite your friends and family to run with you.

Half and Single athletes must complete the run segment within 17 hours of the race start (12:00am Saturday), 1.5x athletes within 30 hours of the race start (1:00pm Saturday) Double athletes within 36 hours of race start (7:00pm Saturday).
