Course Info: With one of the most unique venues in our racing family, the Top of Delaware Triathlon takes place at the top of a mountain. Athletes start their day with a swim in the Newark Reservoir, a lake quarried into the side of a mountain overlooking the City of Newark. After swimming the 750 meter course, athletes will run the 1/3 mile downhill to transition at the base of the reservoir. The bike course is rolling and sometimes technical, but those miles really fly as you quickly exit the City of Newark and roll through the elegant forests of White Clay Creek State Park and Middle Run Valley Natural Area. The bike course is rolling with great pavement and has mostly right hand turns. After T2, triathletes will run to the top of the reservoir to run the paved perimeter trail featuring skyline views of the City of Newark. We promise, this race will quickly become one of your new favorites.

More: Race categories available for this race are Age Group, Aquabike, Relay Teams, Clydesdale, Master's Clydesdale, Athena, Military and Novice. All categories are scored 3 deep with Duathlon going 5 deep M/F and Masters M/F per event.

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."
