SWIM: 1500 meter lake swim in the Buffalo Springs Lake, USA Triathlon wetsuit rules will prevail.

Note: The water temperature in Buffalo Springs Lake, on the average, is 70-74 degrees (even during the 113 degree day of 1994 the water temperature was never over 74 degrees). It is a spring fed lake so it stays cool; therefore, you should bring your wetsuits. Wetsuits are allowed with 78 degrees or cooler.

BIKE: 40 km out & back course within the canyons surrounding the lake. Course is mostly flat with 5 climbs on asphalt roads.

RUN: 10 km out & back course that is pancake flat. The tree lined neighbourhood roads offer nice shade and the finish line will be pumping music and cheers to welcome all athletes home.
