Swim ? The race starts from the Granite Beach in Folsom Lake with a .75 mile swim from the beach area. The swim course will be a triangular course marked by the large white triangular buoys. Water temperature should be approximately 66-75 degrees. Wetsuits are recommended. The swim will exit the lake and head up the beach and on a grassy path to the transition area located in the parking area.
Bike ? The 13-mile bike course is a TWO-LAP course located entirely within the park on paved roads that roll through oak and pine forests. The 6.5 mile bike course follows the park road north from Granite Beach. The course is flat past the horse corral and Old County Road. The course begins to roll around Oak Point. The smooth rolling road continues to Doton?s Point for an out/back loop with plenty of twists and turns. Turn right from Doton?s Point for a turn-around at Beeks Bight and a return ride to Granite Beach. North Park Roads are closed to vehicle traffic.
It is STRONGLY recommended that you ride the course ahead of time. Caution is advised on several of the turns as they wind through the hills and oak trees that surround Folsom Lake. After the second loop you will return into the transition area. Course maps will be available on race morning at Registration. The Bike course will not have an aid station. Water, FLUID Performance Electrolyte Beverage and CLIF Shot Gels will be available in the transition area and on run course.
Run ? The 5-mile run course leaves transition and runs on single-track trails along the lake back towards Beal?s Point. The out and back course has 3 aid stations that will be stocked with water, Clif Beverage, and Clif Shot Energy gels. The finish is back at the start area at the Granite Beach. ALL athletes must wear their race number on the front of their body during the run and have it when crossing the finish line.

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."
