Course Info: The Pleasants Landing Triathlons are the newest edition to the Virginia-Maryland Triathlon Series. Hosted in the newly renovated and opened Lake Anna Beach Marina now called Pleasants landing Marina at Lake Anna, this race and venue are amazing. The swim lakes place in the southeast portion of Lake Anna, about 1/4 mile from where the ?hot side? of Lake Anna empties into the cold side, resulting in water temperatures that are 4-6 degree?s warmer than the rest of the lake at this time of year. So, you can look forward to water temperatures in the mid 70?s The last open water swim event of the season starts out with a 9AM start so you can sleep in a little and maybe even bring the kids! The race site is unique because the transition area and finish line are surrounded by water on 3 sides with a view of the Blue Ridge Mountains to the West. Be sure to register early as we expect the return of this event to be extremely popular.
Swim Course: The 1500 meter swim begins with an in water start on the south side of the transition area. Athletes will swim a triangular shaped course and exit the water on the north side of transition. The course will have 2 right turns and sighting buoys will be located approximately every 75 meters. We expect the water at this time of year and at this section of the lake to be in the mid 60′s due to the unique location of the race site. A temperature reading will be taken and posted the Thursday prior to the event. The water temperature at this location has averaged in the low to mid 60′s. One of the great things about this swim course is that it is very spectator friendly, family and friends can walk around the peninsula and ?follow? their athlete through the swim course.
The water is expected to be in the mid to upper 60?s.
More: Bike Course: The olympic bike course is a 2 loop 23 mile course. With a left turn out of the marina athletes have mostly right turns as they ride low traffic, well paved roads. The course is rolling with flat sections and a few short climbs coming off lake causeways. This is a beautiful course and a lot of fun to ride.
Run Course: The olympic run course is two loops of the sprint course. The run course leaves transition and goes through a short section of woods and gravel road to meet the main road. Athletes then do an out an back run on a closed course. The out and back section is all paved and is lightly rolling as you run by fields, forest and over the South Anna River. Athletes starting their second loop on the gravel road just prior to entering the woods, athletes finishing their second lap proceed through the woods to then finish adjacent to the transition area.
This event features a Tri-Blend Crew Style T-shirts, Custom Race Socks, Finisher?s Medals, Professional DJ, Bounce House and a post race meal.
Aquabike and Relays are also options during the registration process.
Map location is based off of a geocode of the addressed entered using Google's Google Maps API. If your address does not geocode properly, you can either update the address (we will attempt to re-geocode after any updates to your entry) or you can use Google's geocoding tool found here: http://gmaps-samples.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/geocoder/singlegeocode.html to obtain a lat/long for your location and enter that. To use the utility, type in an address that is close to your location and then drag-and-drop the marker to obtain the desired lat/long. If you choose to enter a lat/long, you must check the box on the edit page that says, "override geocode with entered lat/long."
