A USAT License is required if you do not already have a USAT Membership. A day pass can be purchased during registration for $12

Swim

The course will be a simple two buoy course. Triathletes will execute a beach start on a sandy beach with a gradual slope. Swimmers will swim out a short distance and turn ninety degrees around the first buoy, then swim parallel to shore to the second buoy, one-half mile away. Swimmers will round the second buoy and return the entry point on the beach to complete their one mile swim leg. The direction of the course (east to west) will be determined by the direction of the surface current on the morning of the event. For maximum safety, swimmers will swim against the current for the first half-mile. In this manner, swimmers will benefit from the current on the return portion of their swim.

Bike

Eighty four miles of cycling bliss. You'll experience the vibrance and natural energy of Springtime in the Ohio countryside . As you depart Geneva State Park, your bike route will quickly turn southward, away from Lake Erie. The vast majority of the 28 mile loop boasts smooth asphalt road surfaces and flat topography.

Run

The highlight of your 15 mile run will be the sandy beach town strip that follows the shore of Lake Erie through Geneva-on-the-Lake. This town recalls a simpler time when a Coney Island hot dog, getting stuck at the top of the ferris wheel and the rumble of hot rods cruising the boulevard were the makings for a beach weekend of endless possibilities. Soak in the electric energy of an adolescent summer as you stretch your legs through Geneva-on-the-Lake.

Beyond the buzz of the town, the run course is flat and tranquil, stretching from the secluded and tree lined running paths of Geneva State Park to the lake front homes and five star properties that line the lake shore along the Great Lakes Seaway Trail. On the return portion of your run, you'll enjoy stunning views of the lake as you outpace the sunset with every step toward your triumphant 100 Mile finish in Geneva State Park.
