    The ½ mile lake swim will start off the event as athletes will begin on East shore and swim out to a point in the lake marked with buoys and then back to the beach.  After exiting the water the racers will face a short run to the transition area to begin the 5 mile run course which will use parts of the mountain bike course.  The mountain bike leg, which consists of a 10 mile loop will take the riders around the popular “right loop” to the finish in the Transistion area.
