FOR THE 2020 EVENT WE ARE SWITCHING TO A TRADITIONAL SWIM, BIKE, RUN SEQUENCE.
SWIM: A LIFE JACKET IS REQUIRED
Starts at 9:00 am sharp, please be at the starting line at 8:45
This year in an effort to follow COVID-19 restrictions, we may start in flights. You will be notified if this is the case.
Water shoes are recommended for entering and exiting the water and for running from the river to the bike corral.
The start of the SWIM is located behind the Cougar Lane Store down on the shoreline at the gravel bar adjacent to where the Jerry's jet boats dock.
The swim path begins with a short distance up river and around a buoy then you will swim with the downriver current. Almost immediately after rounding the buoy and heading downriver there is an exhilarating, but shallow rapid that is best completed by floating with feet forward on your back to avoid bumping any rocks. (It's a lot of fun!)
Heading downriver there will be balloons floating above the shrubs at the swim takeout beyond the Agness RV docks that you will be able to see on the shore in advance to exiting the water.
Volunteers will be at the water's edge to direct you up the path and down the "B" row toward the bike corral to transition for the RIDE.
RIDE: HELMET REQUIRED
From the Bike Corral, RIDE out the exit lane, go up and out of the entrance to the RV Park turning RIGHT onto Agness Road, heading downriver, staying on the right hand side of the road.
Stay on Agness Road crossing the bridge over the Illinois/Rogue River confluence up to the Trash Dogs sign and hydration station, turn around and ride all the way back on Agness Road, passing the RV Park and continuing on, crossing over the river on Coon Rock Bridge to the hydration station at the Foster Bar intersection, then turning around to ride back to the Bike Corral to transition to the RUN.
PLEASE NOTE: You are REQUIRED to DISMOUNT before entering the bike corral.
RUN: FOR YOUR SAFETY there are defined EXIT & ENTER lanes from the Bike Corral.
From the Bike Corral, RUN out the EXIT Lane, go up and out of the entrance to the RV Park turning to the left on Agness Road heading upriver running on the left side of the road facing traffic.
You will cross over the Shasta Costa bridge and continue to the left following the river and down a short distance further to the hydration station turnaround to run back on the left side of the road facing traffic on Agness Road turning LEFT into the RV park to the FINISH LINE.
