Swim Leg (500 yards)
The 500-yard swim takes place at Bartlett High School.
Bike Leg (12 miles)
Retrieve bike from Transition 1 (Bike Corral) and follow “exit bike” sign out of Bartlett parking lot. You will use connector path and ride briefly on Native Heritage driveway entrance. Once you reach Muldoon, turn hard left onto bike path. Follow instructions and use caution at the Ship Creek Bridge. There will be sections of gravel on either side of the bridge. You can get off your bike and walk this small section or choose to ride a mountain bike. Ride to Fort Richardson overpass. Cross over the highway and make a left onto the Gunnery Range Frontage Road. Bike to marked turn around and proceed back toward overpass. Bear to the left onto Arctic Valley Road and continue for about a mile. At the stop sign, turn left heading east on Arctic Valley Road paralleling the golf course. Bike past the driving range and up a short hill to Transition 2 on your right. Do not dismount until you see signage or hear volunteer asking you to dismount. Leave helmet buckled and on while riding your bike (not prior to dismounting). A volunteer will take your bike and any gear, which will be returned to Transition 1 (Bike Corral) at Bartlett High, most likely within minutes of your finish. A volunteer will also hand you your “gear bag”, if you dropped one off during bike drop off on Saturday.
Run Leg (4.1 miles)
Run down the hill and cross the bridge. Continue on the tank trail for about 2 ¼ miles. Turn right at the fork in the trail. Run on the frontage road and through the tunnel under the Muldoon ramp which is near the Centennial Park Ball Fields. Follow the bike path onto the Muldoon Overpass and continue to the second driveway. Turn right into the Bartlett High entrance and follow the flags and cones to the finish line. Smile - you are a triathlete!
