The start is at Fred Benson town beach - you will enter the water & swim 1/4 mile around buoys. Swimmers will exit the water and run to the bike transition in the front of the beach pavilion. The 12 mile bike consists of 2 laps which take you out around the west side of the island and back to the pavilion - please be aware of traffic and helmets are mandatory. Follow the day-glow orange markers on the right side of the road.
Bikers will return to the pavilion and begin the 4 mile run to the end of Surf Beach and back up to the end of Mansion Beach. Runners will head back to Town beach to the finish line. There are 3 water stops on the beach run - town beach (there & back) & the Mansion Beach turn around point.
