Course Information:

SWimb 300 Meters:

There will be overhead signs displaying approximate swim times per 100 yards. (1:00-1:15, 1:30-1:45 etc.) Please self seed yourself according to your estimated swim time.  Swimmers will start approximately every 5-10 seconds and if done correctly, the fastest swimmers will go first and the slower ones last. This year participants will start on one end of the pool and swim in a serpentine pattern. You will swim the length of the pool in lane one, duck under the lane lines and swim the length in lane two, repeat this until all 6 lanes are complete.  Once you complete the swim, exit the pool and jam on over to the transition area in the grass located just outside the pool. If participating friends wish to line up next to each other for the start of the race, please line up according to the slower swimmers 300 meter time.

The bike course consists of 2 loops along the beautiful roads of American Fork and Highland townships.

Exit the transition area from the NW gate of the ball field located north of the American Fork Fitness Center (AFFC). Mount on your bike on the road at the “Bike mount sign”.
