COURSE INFORMATION

Overview

The swim is in Hog Eye Lake – a small lake with very little going on and only one house on it. It is a clear, shallow lake. You will have the noodle support on the lake as well, so use as you need them.

The bike is as flat as a pancake, all right turns around farmland. It is a 20k bike course. Long course athletes will do 2 laps. Continue past the park for lap two, do not turn into the park until you have completed both laps.

The run course is a cross country style course – entirely closed, and entirely inside the park. The course is used by local high schools and community colleges for their cross country course. It is flat with two short, small hills and tree-lined most of the way.

Transition

Opens – 6:00am – not before
No friends or family members allowed in the transition area for any reason. The race director and race officials will close the transition area 30-45 minutes before race start to ensure all athletes are at the starting area for mandatory course meeting and announcements. Once the transition area is closed, you will NOT be permitted back in before the race starts. Family/Friends will not be permitted in for any reason at any time throughout the event.

Re-Opens
When the last cyclist is off the course and has headed out for the run. This time is variable and we will make announcements at the event when the transition area is ready to re-open.

Any athletes removing gear from transition areas before the announcer or race director has officially opened the transition area will be DISQUALIFIED from the race! This pertains to all athletes of all distances. All athletes deserve a clear transition.

In the event of inclement weather, it is recommended you have warm, dry clothing outside the transition area to put on following your finish due to other athletes still being on the bike course.

Timing Chip
When you have completed the race, please do NOT enter the transition area wearing your timing chip. PLEASE remove your chip before re-entering the transition area and exiting again. This will cause a timing error.

Racking
You must rack according to your race number, based on the sequence numbers placed at the end of each row. Please remember racks will hold 7 bikes racked with the seat tip on support bar. Please be courteous to fellow athletes to ensure there is space for 7 bikes on a rack. If there is not enough room for your bike on your designated rack, please see a 3D Team member and we will help. Please do not move another athletes bike or gear.

Aid Station
Located at the run in/out chute with water and electrolyte replacement.

Directional
Run In/Out and Bike In/Out chutes are clearly marked on the large structures at either end.  It is your responsibility to go the right direction while racing in the transition area.

 

Swim: 200m, 500m

New for all events will be a Time Trial swim start.  For safety reasons it is important we ensure we are doing all we can to alleviate stress at the start and turning at buoys.  A time trial start ensures everyone has a clear, stress-free swim.  You will SELF SEED according to your 500m swim time.  (THIS IS YOUR ACTUAL swim time, not what you THINK you will swim, or want to swim) this is important to ensure you are not swam over or create congestion by seeding yourself faster than you can swim.  Don’t be that athlete that creates a traffic jam.  See yourself appropriately and everyone will have a great time in the water. 

Each athlete will report their number to the timer before crossing the timing mats and entering the water.  Again your responsibility to report that number to the timer.   

Time trial starts: Sprint athletes first, followed about 30 minutes later with Super Sprint athletes.  

This is a triangle course, the short course indicated with double buoys. Easily viewable, five foot orange buoys will mark the course and there will be plenty of noodles available to use as well.

Swim course will be patrolled with lifeguards, search and rescue, as well as sheriff marine division. 

It will be a beach start. 

SWIM COURSE

Route map for Superman Superwoman Swim Course by Kenny Krell on plotaroute.com

Bike: 10k, 20k

This is a fun and flat bike course with all right turns on all new pavement. Exiting the park LEFT, you will go RIGHT on Portage, RIGHT on V to your turnaround point at 18th street, back to a RIGHT on Portage, RIGHT on VW, RIGHT on 14th, RIGHT on U Ave, then use caution when proceeding thru Oakland, then back to a LEFT into the park.   Again using caution at the LEFT into Prairie County park.  

1 Lap short course.

 Course will be patrolled by a continually passing support truck, as well as local law enforcement and motorcycle club.

BIKE COURSE

Run: 1mi, 3 mi

Exiting the Transition Area, you follow the chute back down to the beach to an immediate RIGHT turn, then back up, and head out into the park. About 2 miles are on a trail, the rest of the course is on park roads. 

Sprint athletes will head straight into the finish line. 

Aid stations: Located every mile with iced water, lemon-lime Gatorade Endurance Formula and energy gels.

RUN COURSE

Aquabike

You will start with your specific swim wave. Check the information cube at the event for wave start information.  

You will complete the Swim and Bike disciplines of the event. Following your Bike discipline, you will dismount your bike, cross the Bike In timing mats and place your bike back at your spot on the rack in the Transition Area.  You will then proceed across the Run Out timing mats and you are done! Your finish time will be when you cross the timing mats at that point.

DO NOT re-enter the transition area through Run In/Out or Bike In/Out. This will cause a timing error.  

Finisher Memento 
If the event offers a finisher’s memento, please proceed to the finish area to receive the item. Tell the support crew at the finish line you were in the aquabike race and they will hand you the finishers memento. 

You will keep your timing chip & strap on until all the bikes are off the course. Once we announce the transition is open, you may turn your chip & strap in at the designated collection point and retrieve your gear at that point.

The race has been rescheduled for October 17,2020
We are very sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.
As we all have heard, information about the coronavirus has been coming at a fast and furious pace over the last few days. The situation is much different than it was even 24 hours ago.
We had almost 400 athletes registered to come from 35 different states. If one of those athletes is positive for the coronavirus and transmits it to others, we are then facilitating the massive spread of the virus across the country.
