Race #1 — SUPER SPRINT

250y Swim :: 3.72 mile Bike :: 1mi Run

The American Triple-T Ohio starts everything off with the SUPER SPRINT. This short race will be the first opportunity for participants to see what they are truly in for. The swim starts off in time-trial format with participants going off every 1-3 seconds on a spectator friendly 250 yard rectangle swim course off the boat ramp area at Salt Fork Lake. Participants will then mount their bike for a quick 3.72 mile out and back bike course within the park. After completing the bike course participants will take on a flat 1 mile run.

Course Directions

BIKE: Exit the transition area and follow Park Road 18 to Park Road 3. Go left on Park Road 3 to the bike turn around. Reverse your course and return back to the transition area.

RUN: Exit the transition area and follow cones to the run turn around at the end of Park Road 18. Reverse your course and return past the transition area to the finish.

Race #2: Olympic AM (XT) and Sprint AM (ST)

Olympic – 1mi Swim :: 24.66mi Bike :: 6.84mi Run
Sprint – ½ mi Swim :: 12.77mi Bike :: 3.1mi Run

Saturday morning starts of the American Triple-T Ohio race number 2 – the OLYMPIC AM and Sprint AM. The swim starts off in time-trial format with participants going off every 1-3 seconds on a one-lap (ST) or two-lap (XT) clockwise rectangle swim course along the shoreline of Salt Fork Lake. Participants will then mount their bike for a challenging bike course that will challenge all ability levels. Participants will tackle challenging terrain in and around the Salt Fork region. After completing this challenging bike course, participants will take on a run on part of the Shadbush trail (XT only) — a trail that you will get to know very well by the end of the weekend. Featuring both single and double track sections of rugged forest along with rolling meadow crossings, this trail will humble all. ST participants will remain on the road for their 3.1 mile run.

Race #4 — Half Iron (XT) and Olympic (ST)

Half Iron – 1.2mi Swim :: 56mi Bike :: 13.64mi Run
Sprint – .62 mi Swim :: 27.8mi Bike :: 6.84mi Run

Sunday morning arrives, and participants must now summon enough strength to take on what is easily the one of the toughest courses known to man. You will experience what participants refer to as the “Triple-T Shuffle”, similar to the Ironman shuffle but worse! This will be the day you won’t soon forget. It starts off with a one-lap (ST) or two-lap (XT) swim on a clockwise rectangle swim course along the shoreline of Salt Fork Lake. Next up is very challenging bike course with nearly 5000’ of total climbing (XT) and 2500’ for the ST. These courses will challenge ALL ability levels. After finishing the bike course participants in the XT will again head out on to the Shadbush trail for the final 22km (13.64mi) run — this time for two laps and the ST will join them on this challenging loop for the first time of the weekend.
