  • Description: The 1200-meter swim will be a point-to-point course in beautiful Highline Lake, starting at the swim beach just below transition and the finish line. Swimmers will have the sun at their backs as they swim across the lake to the boat-ramp area on the opposite shore. Their bikes will be waiting for them in a second swim-to-bike transition area. This transition is just a short ¾ mile jog from the main transition and finish. Athletes may drive over and drop off their bikes – or ride over and jog back. All swim gear will be transport back to the finish line by race staff. The 12-mile bike course is a fun 2-lap course that follows a mix of single and double-track trails within Highline Lake State Park. Much of this trail system is used for the popular 18 Hours of Fruita mountain bike race. This course is fast and fun! Athletes will be seeded by bike and swim ability to ensure a clear course for all participants. The 4.5 mile run course follows the rolling trails on the bluffs overlooking Highline Lake. This course is 99 percent soft dirt and 1 percent paved.
