COURSE DESCRIPTION & MAPS
Bike course is an 8 mile loop that is suitable for both Gravel & Mountain Bikes.
The loop features a great mix of Gravel Roads, Packed Dirt Single Track & a visit into the Heckling Woods.
Depending on race category you will do one, two or three loops.
Running loop for the Olympic Triathlon and Trail Run races feature magnificient views as you circle around Wawayanda Lake. Definetely a good challenge dancing through a mix of packed dirt and rocky goodness.
There isn’t a killer climb – all the up hill run sections are short and through rolling hills.
Run loop for the Sprint is the same one we’ve used for past three seasons for our Wednesday Wonders Sprint Triathlons and is fairly flat and suitable for athletes of all levels.
Half Marathon & Marathon loop is a mega loop is teh best of both worlds – starts with the Bike loop and feeds right into the 10K Trail Run.
