Your swim course will be 600 yards in protected Gulf waters. Self-Seeded Time Trial beach start.
Self-Seeded means you enter the water based on your expected swim finish time. If you think you'll finish the swim in under 8mins, you'll enter the water first. 9-10mins, 10-11mins. 12-13mins, 13-14mins, 14-15mins, 15mins + will enter the water, accordingly. We will maintain the integrity of the time trial start with athletes entering the water every 5 seconds.
Swimmers will swim southward to end of cable (marked with buoys) and then return northward on other side of cable to shore.
Your bike course will be 16.7 miles for year 3. Leaving Isle Dauphine Gulf Club, you will travel along Orleans Drive, right on Bienville Blvd to a turn around at Albright Drive, right on Lemoyne and bike over the bridge and back, right on Bienville Blvd, right on Perdido Street, left on Cadillac Ave, left on Pirates Cove, left on Orleans Drive to return to transition. The bike course will be open but well secured. You will have one full lane for an out and back trip across the bridge. The other lane will be open to traffic with police escort.
Your run course will leave transition and you'll travel almost 1 mile off road on the golf course (consider this 'off-road' running and plan accordingly), connect with a left turn on Hernando Street, turn left on Iberville Drive, left on Indian Place, right on Hernando following the golf course to the finish line. This run course is mostly OFF COURSE on a well kept golf course.
Transition is subject to change in accordance with timing company requirements.
