Course Description
SWIM: Athletes will enter from the Beach and will follow a counter clockwise pattern for the swim course keeping the buoys on their left. Swimmers in the TINMAN LONG COURSE race will swim 1000 yards. Short Course athletes will complete a 400 yard course.

RUN: Athletes will run counterclockwise around the lake on the paved running path. Aid stations will be located every mile along each of the courses. The run course is moderately flat with some slight climbs giving beautiful views of Lake Shawnee. Long Course athletes will complete one full lap around the lake. Short Course athletes will complete a 3.1 mile out/back course.

If you wear it on your wrist, on your bike, in your pocket, etc., you will not be scored. Your timing chip will be removed by volunteers once you have crossed the finish line.
