The swim is a wave start. Check the website approximately one week before the race for exact wave start times.
After completing the lap and exiting the water there is a short climb up the ramp before you enter transition.

The running surface of this course is a mix of grass and pavement. Unlike the Sprint and Intermediate courses, all Try-aTri participants will turnaround at the Casino. Refer to the Interactive map to become familiar with the run course. There will be two aid stations approximately 1 mile apart with water and HEED. This is a total of 2 chances during the 1.8 mile run to hydrate on the course.
