• HOW IT WORKS | RACE FORMAT
The goal of this event is to log as many complete triathlons, duathlons, or single laps (for run, swim or bike only events) in the allotted time. You may choose to race as a solo athlete or as a team of up to 8 athletes. Choose from an 8 hour, 12 hour, 24 hour or 36 hour race. You and or your team will be given a "pit area" inside the Village where you setup camp for the duration of the event. This is where you sleep, eat, store your gear, etc.. - your home away from home. You are not required to change disciplines in between each leg of the event. For example, you may bike 10 laps in a row, then swim 5 and then run 8. You can complete laps of any discipline in any order. Teams are not required to change athletes after each leg. For example, team member A can run 5 loops in a row, then bike 3 before handing off to team member B.
** All 36 hour athletes MUST start on the bike and complete at least one loop at the start of the event.
** The swim course is closed from 6:00pm - 7:00am. No swimming at night!
Whomever logs the most completed triathlons, duathlons, or single laps (for run, swim or bike only events) in the allotted time, wins the race.

1. Bart has completed 10 swims, 8 bikes and 8 runs in 36 hours. His final score would be 8 completed triathlons + a swim.

• COURSE DETAILS
1. NIGHT HOURS - Lights are Required!
Lights are required on the run and bike between the hours of 7:00pm and 7:00am. On the run, a headlamp or handheld flashlight must be worn at all times. On the bike, a white headlight AND a red rear light are required at all times. We do have a place where you can charge your batteries during the day to make sure your gear will last through the night.
PRO TIP: For 10 seconds, on the run course, when you've verified there are no vehicles or other runners around, turn off your headlamp - look up - and be blown away by arguably one of the best views of the stars you'll ever see. On a clear night, it's an absolutely breathtaking sight. Then - turn your damn light back and never do it again... ;)
2. SWIM COURSE - 0.25 mile open water swim
Swim Caps are required at all times when swimming. We ask that you try to wear a bright colored cap so you can be visible in the water. Wetsuits are allowed, swim buoys are allowed. The water temperature ranges from 62 - 68 degrees. You will exit the water after each swim lap to give our timer your number - then, you may re-enter the water for another loop or move on to a different discipline. A kayaker or paddle boarder with a floatation device will be present at all times when athletes are in the water.
3. BIKE COURSE - 10.68 mile single loop bike course
Helmets are required at all times while on the bike. Roads are OPEN and you must obey all traffic laws while on course. “Just like a training ride” is the mindset while on the route. It is the riders responsibility to know and understand the bike route. We do have glowing cones and reflective signs placed along the route during the entirety of the event.
Please ride with caution. It is HIGHLY recommended you practice some night riding before making your way up to the event. All 36 Hour athletes are REQUIRED to begin and complete one loop of the bike course to begin the event. White headlights and red blinking taillights are required during the night hours.
4. RUN COURSE - 1.3 mile loop (half trail / half road)
The run is a combination of paved roads and non-technical trail running alongside the lake. The run course is absolutely beautiful and is a nice break from pounding the pavement for 36, 24, 12 or 8 hours. The course is well marked and illuminated at night using glow sticks and battery operated lights. You can not get lost on this course.
4. THE RACE VILLAGE - where it all happens
The village is the race headquarters - it's where all the things are happening. You will rack your bike here, transition between disciplines or team mates, grab your home made food, listen to music, shop rad merchandise and more. Each team and solo athlete is allowed a 10x10 space to pop up a tent and support their team or athlete (pink area in diagram). Each solo athlete or team is also allowed a space in the camping area to pop open a sleeping tent and have a designated place to catch some rest. Most solo athletes and teams do bring a pop up tent as a place to kick up their feet and still be right in the middle of the action.
Please note - race parking is nearby and you will be able to walk your gear to the race site.
* Charging stations will be setup inside the village to charge phones, lights, etc...
