Course Descriptions


The swim course will be "with the current" in the beautiful Rappahannock River. Water tempatures are typically in the mid to upper 70's. It has been wetsuit eligible in the past, 75-77 degrees; however, no one will know until the USAT officials take 3 readings that morning. The river is tidal so there is a current; however, it is a point to point swim with the current in a straight line for the sprint and you will need to cut across the current on the Oly course, yet with the tide/current.  There are no jellyfish or nettles.  You will walk up or down the street to the start.  The start point will depend on the current and tide chart.  Please give yourself ample time (an extra 10 minutes) to walk down to the swim start.  The road is paved, but if you do wear flip flops to the start we will  bring them back to the finish line area.  

Click here for current tide info

The swim cut-off time is 30 minutes for the sprint and 60 minutes for the olympic.


The course is on great roads through the rural area of Westmoreland and Richmond Counties. It is a rolling course with some challenging hills. Police & directional volunteers will be at all major intersections. There is no bottle handoff on the bike.


Basically a flat out and back in the sun on rural roads. There will be aid stations with water and Powerade every mile.
