Our races start on July 21 at 7am and as are true to the Sprint and Olympic distances as possible. MAPS are published here
, with turn-by-turn documents. Both our maps and turn-by-turn documents link to actual maps that were created in Gmap Pedometer. The Sprint distances are:
Olympic Distance - Swim: .93mi (1.5km); Bike: 25.1mi (40.25km); Run: 6.2mi (10km)
Olympic Relay - Swim: .93mi (1.5km); Bike: 25.1mi (40.25km); Run: 6.2mi (10km)
The swim takes place on a looped course that starts on the beach at Memorial Beach and swims towards the town of Healdsburg. The Olympic race will complete a larger loop and the Sprint will complete one smaller loop. The course will be buoyed and supported by kayak and paddleboard. While this is a river, the current is light and very friendly to first-time athletes.
The Olympic bike course is an out-and-back with a loop at its far end. It leaves Memorial Beach on the Redwood Highway. Riders proceed out to Eastside Road, over to River Road then back to Eastside via Westide and Wohler Bridge.
The run course is out-and-back on Bellaiche Road. Runners leave transition turning right onto Redwood Highway, then take the first left onto Bellaiche.
Athletes can tour the course the day before. Transition setup starts at 5am. The start, transition and finish all take place at Veterans Memorial Beach in Healdsburg, as does the parking, so once you're here, you're ready to go!
