Registration fees included or disclosed up front?: Not specified whether registration/convenience fees are added. Course Info: Herron Lake is a motor free lake, one of the few left out there. It is very clean and clear. Sprint distance you will have a rectangle course straight out, across 30m and back in. Olympic distance will have a 2 loop diamond shaped course.
Water temp has been in the 70s every year.
The bike is not only 100% closed to traffic, but it is fun and challenging ? rolling to hilly at times. The perfect course for those looking for an exhilarating challenge. Communication is needed as it is a 3mi course, down and back equaling 6 miles. 1, 2, or 4 loops will complete the bike discipline and it is your responsibility to count laps. A fast downhill turn at the Transition Area end will require braking and handling and focus.
The run course is a part trail run, part pavement slightly rolling with a fast descent back down to the beach. 1 or 2 loops.

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."
