    SWIM: 500 Meters (Lake)
    BIKE: 14 Miles
    RUN: 5 Kilometers

    Tri the Midlands is a perfect way to start your triathlon season with its beginner friendly swim, rolling bike and challenging yet beautiful 5K run.

    SWIM
    The Lake Swim is a beginner-friendly, quick, 500m triangular course that enters the water from the beach a short walk from transition area. Athletes will begin with a deep water start.

    TRANSITION
    The transition area is located near the lake on Harborside Circle. This space is located completely on the pavement adjacent to the swim exit.

    When exiting the swim you will run out over a sandy path with some pine needles (we will rake the path the day before the race and make sure there are no ants and cover this with carpet). Next you will cross over about 25 yards of pavement and into transition. This area is directly adjacent to the small grassy park on Harborside Circle in the Harborside neighborhood of Lake Carolina.

    BIKE
    The 14 mile bike course leaves Lake Carolina from the front entrance and moves through the rural roads over rolling hills finally re-entering Lake Carolina near the YMCA and ending back in Harborside.

    RUN
    The out-&-back 5K run then takes the athletes out into Lake Carolina along scenic trails / roads and over the bridge before ending at the Village Green in Harborside. The challenge in the run is heading up the hill after crossing the lake bridge. There is a steep grade on this hill but it only lasts for a couple hundred yards! The Village Green make Tri the Midlands a spectator friendly race and provides a great backdrop for post race discussions and refreshments.  This is also a great area for spectators to hang out! From the green they can see the bike route leaving and returning as well as the race/run finish. We recommend having spectators bring fold out chairs and a cooler with their favorite refreshments so they can enjoy themselves while they wait for their favorite athletes to pass by & finish!

For the love of all that is good and moisture wicking...

Though we try to be accurate and on top of things... Race details can change when we aren't lookin. And once in a while we simply make a mistake.
