About the Course

This race offers excellent opportunities for spectators to watch their favourite athletes on each part of the course.

Map of the entire course (see map)

 

Transition

Located on a grassy area adjacent to the East Beach Parking Lot. Bike racks are marked according to age group - 4 bikes per rack. Athletes are asked to rack their bikes in the appropriate area. For security reasons, only athletes and their parents will be allowed to be in transition. Athletes may take a towel and shoes to the swim area. Helmets must remain with the athlete's bike in transition. 

Swim (see map)

Birds Hill Park lake. For each age group/ swim wave, KOS athletes will swim to the farthest buoy on the course. After each wave, the furthest buoy out is removed and the next group swims to the furthest buoy. The water depth varies from 0’ to 6’ and temperature is normally between 16C to 20C in early June. If the water is too cold for the safety of the athletes, the event will be switched to a duathlon. 

Bike (see map)

A rolling out-and-back course leaving from the transition area in the East Beach parking lot and turning onto South Drive. Turnaround points are marked with a coloured balloon or coloured flag that matches the athlete's wristband. The cycling course is not closed to vehicle traffic. Parents may cycle with younger athletes provided the parent does not ride in the draft zone in front or beside the athlete.

Run (see map)

An out-and-back course along the paved path. Turnaround points are marked with a coloured balloon or coloured flag that matches the athlete's wristband.
