Our on-campus classic race will feature a pool swim, a fast and flat bike course, and a spectator friendly run course.
Swim (400 meters)
The swim will take place in a heated, olympic length pool. Competitors will be seeded by swim time, with a racer leaving every 5 seconds within each race category. Each triathlete will then perform the snake swim by winding up and down the eight lanes to finish the (400 meter) swim.
*Flip turns will not be permitted and racers must touch the wall before then pushing off and under the lane line into the adjacent lane.
There will be pre-race warm-up swim time in the pool for anyone interested. The full pool will be open from 6:40am-7:10 am. We will clear the pool at 7:10 am, and anyone remaining in the pool thereafter will be disqualified.
Bike (12 miles)
The bike course will consist of two, pancake-flat loops through UC Davis' outer campus and will be monitored by numerous UC Davis Police Department employees.
Route Description (2 loops):
Run (3.1 miles) - MAY CHANGE DUE TO CONSTRUCTION
The run course will consist of 3 laps of a single course around the Aggie Football Stadium. This course will allow for great spectating while also allowing racers to see their competition on the run course.
