Bike Course - 56 miles - Triathlon, Aquabike, and Duathlon
Athletes will travel north (left) out of the park along Veazie-Cumberland and travel some beautiful rural roads, and eventually right toward Selleck on Kanaskat-Kangley Road.

When you reach Kent-Kangley Road , you'll be right for a 3 mile turnaround in Selleck. After the turn-around and your return to the intersection of Kent-Kangley and Kanaskat-Kangley, the route continues west toward Ravensdale.  Olympic athletes will be turning left and skipping this out-and-back.  Take care to turn right!!

You'll  turn-around in Ravensdale on Kent-Kangley road, and make your way to the first aid station at Mile 18 at the Bonneville Power Plant. Volunteers will guide you at every turn, so don't worry through those longer straight stretches. In Cumberland, you'll be directed to a 2.5 mile out-and-back on SE 352nd St.

When you arrive back at Nolte, you'll be directed to turn around near the park entrance and head back for a second loop of what you just did. 2 loops - 56 miles.

You'll visit another aid station at mile 34.3 and will return to the power plant for your last aid station at mile 46.5.  Consult map for locations.
AQUABIKERS - You have a very cool finish!  About 100 yards BEFORE you get back to the park entrance, you'll be turning right into the boat launch access of the park.  There will be bright pink signs directing you to your turn, so pay attention!  When you turn right onto that access road, you'll dismount, run toward the lake, and then into the finish chute with your bike.  
Skip Aheads, Not Cut-offs.
At RTB Events we want athletes to cross the finish line and so we make every effort and alteration to make that possible. Instead of Cut-offs, we've engineered some Skip-aheads in the Long course race .  Basically if you don't make it to a couple points on the course by a certain time, you'll bypass an out-and-back get skipped ahead on the course where you can continue racing the course as planned. 

Bike Course Skip-ahead #1 is at about mile 36.4 at the right turn onto Kent-Kangley which begins a 3 mile out and back. If you arrive after 12:00 pm, you'll be directed left onto Kent-Kangley and will skip those 3 miles.
Bike Course Skip-ahead #2 is at Mile 51.5 at the right turn onto 352nd which begins a 2.5 mile out and back in Cumberland. If you arrive after 1:00pm, you'll be directed back to the park where you can start your run.

The Long Course Run course travels south of the park after a few turns to get you onto the west side of Veazie Cumberland - so pay attention to the cones, signs, police officers and volunteers! 
Continue south on Veazie Cumberland to 384th street where you'll turn left and find an aid station at mile 1.7. You'll return to Veazie Cumberland and head south to the southern turnaround at mile 4 on 292nd Ave SE.  On the way you'll visit an aid station at mile 3.4 on the way out, and 4.6 on the way back.    At Mile 5.3 you'll return to SE 384th for another out-and-back with 2 aid stations and return to the park where you'll do 4 loops around Deep Lake before your triumphant finish.  There is an aid station at the trail entrance
