  • Description: The swim in Lake Ontario is actually one of the nicer courses in the series and it is quickly becoming a crowd favourite. It’s an in-water start very close to the swim exit however you will be able to touch the bottom at the start point. You will start swimming in a westerly direction parallel to the shore. You will be following a rectangular pattern in the water finishing back where you started the swim. The Sprint Bike Course starts off flat for the first couple kilometers before heading up to the top of the escarpment. The climb is less than a kilometer long, however it`s very steep. Compared to Milton, it`s shorter but a bit steeper. A 25 tooth or larger rear cog can make your day a lot easier. Once you crest the hill, it`s a flat and fast loop before descending the same hill you went up. Be aware that the descent has some twists and turns so please use caution, and your brakes. The run course is the flattest in our series with a short section through some trails on the return trip to the finish line. This event is lovely because the site is very compact and makes for a lot of festivity!
