|Tri Latta Sprint||6:30AM EDT||N/A|
The swim takes place in Mountain Island Lake and is basically an out & back designed course. Outbound and inbound swimmers are separated by about 50 yards, to eliminate potential head-on collisions. The water temperature at Latta is expected to be 80 degrees or higher making wetsuits usage illegal per USAT rules.
The bike course is a 17 mile loop – a course that is best described as moderately hilly. There are no big climbs on the course – but a series of rollers and a couple of fairly long hills though not steep. The bike takes place on two-lane roads that are open to vehicular traffic so participants are encouraged to be alert and careful.
The course is a straight out & back design - eliminating the two loops that were required on the old course. It's a mostly off-road run course on the trail system at Latta Park. The run surface is hard-packed dirt/gravel. The course is heavily shaded and features a couple of hills – neither of which is long or steep. Aid stations will be located every mile.
