General Information

Registration fees included or disclosed up front?: Not specified whether registration/convenience fees are added.
Course Info: Swim:

The swim for the Lake James International takes place in beautiful Lake James. Lake James is situated in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains and features beautiful clear water.

The triangular shaped swim course will start and finish on the beach.
This will be a 2-loop swim.
Following lap 1, participants will exit the water and run about 20 yards down the beach and then re-enter the lake for the start of lap 2.
This will be a time trial start - with participants starting the race every couple of seconds.
Participants can start where they want (up front for faster swimmers - in the back for more timid swimmers) and with whom they want to start the race with (fathers & sons, buddies, etc.)

A water temperature will be posted on Thursday of race week.


The 40K bike course basically encircles Lake James. The transition area sits at an elevation of about 1200 feet above sea level. The bike course reaches a maximum elevation of about 1450 feet, so there won?t be any major climbs on this course, but there will be a few pretty good ?hills? to negotiate. The biggest climbs will be inside the park. The road surfaces are good and traffic is light.


The 10K run course is an ?out & back? design comprised of two loops. The run course begins at an elevation of about 1200 feet and reaches a maximum elevation of about 1350 feet. The entire run course stays inside Lake James State Park and does not venture out onto public roads. The entire surface is asphalt.

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."
