SWIM COURSE

The swim will be a diamond shaped course. Swimmers will head out towards their left until the first orange buoy. Keep the buoy on your right and take a right hand turn and head out towards the farthest buoy from shore. After approaching this second buoy,swimmers will also keep this buoy on your right and head on an angle back towards the shore to the third buoy. Swimmers will keep this buoy on their right and turn right back towards shore where the race started. There will be a buoy close to shore to act as a guide to help the swimmers spot the finish. You may swim on either side of this buoy. Any swimmer having trouble should follow the standardpractice of raising their hand so assistance can be provided bythe marine patrol.


BIKE COURSE

The bike course map may be found on the Madison Jaycees web site. The course is flat and rolling with no major climbs. The course will be a little congested with traffic the first and last couple of miles because of Rte 1, skirting the center of town and quite a few turns. Once you get over the RR bridge on Copse Rd, there are several good long stretches.

The course will be marked with chalk. However, if it rains, the chalk may wash off. Our intention is to have at least 1 volunteer at each intersection to help with traffic control and directions.However, IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO KNOW THE COURSE AND HAVE STUDIED THE MAP AHEAD OF TIME.

RUN

The run course is perfectly flat and fast. It is an out and back course along the shore roads. As you approach East Wharf Beach, you will be directed into the parking lot where you will run around a garden in the parking lot and head back to the surf club. Please be aware that approximately two miles of the run are shared by both the bike and run courses.
