Course Description
THE SWIM
The Ohio River in downtown Louisville will serve as the venue for the swim portion of this event. The Olympic distance will take off on the Kentucky side of the Ohio across the river to the Indiana shoreline in front of Buckhead Mountain Grill!

THE BIKE
The bike course will take participants through a scenic and fairly flat 12 mile loop (Olympic Distance will do 2 loops). This course will run along the Ohio River on the Jeffersonville side along Utica Pike.

THE RUN
The run course will take you across the 2nd Street Bridge into downtown Louisville and past the brand new KFC Yum Center, home to the University of Louisville Cardinals Basketball teams! They will turn around and come back across the bridge to finish on Riverside Drive (Restaurant Row) in front of Buckhead Mountain Grill. Don’t worry as we will have hydration stations and time clocks approximately every mile along the way!

THE TRANSITION
With possibly the largest and most sought after waterfront location on the Ohio River, Buckhead Mountain Grill Restaurant will serve as a beautiful setting for the transition area. The large, flat parking lot is only steps from the swim exit and will give you a great location to start/finish each leg of the triathlon. The huge decks and spacious banks will offer spectators a unique vantage in which to watch the event!
