DeuceMan Long Course Triathlon

Swim Course - 1.2 Miles (cut off time 7:40am)

Expected water temperature for the race is between 58 & 65 degrees.  Wetsuits are highly encouraged. We do abide by the USAT rules for wetsuit usage, which allows wetsuits to be used in water temperatures up to and including 78 degrees Farenheit. Between 78 and 84 degrees, wetsuits may be used, but participants will not be eligible for age group awards. TriSports.com rents wetsuits on a reservation basis. If you would like to reserve one, you can do so online or call TriSports.com toll-free at 1-888-293-3934. 

The swim will be a 1 Lap triangular course. Athletes will begin the race in the water or on the shore depending on the water level on race day.  Wave information including swim start times can be found on our schedule. Once the swim begins, swimmers will proceed to the right to the first large buoy. The course will be run in a clockwise direction.   For those athletes that would like help in removing their wetsuits, volunteers will be available for support.  A designated area will be marked for this purpose.

DeuceMan RUN COURSE - 13.1 Miles (Cut-off time 3:30 pm)

The DeuceMan run course takes athletes along a nicely groomed, scenic trail around Fool Hollow Lake and then into the campgrounds for a tour and lots of encouragement from the campers.  A rolling out and back along 16th Ave lets you know where you stand in comparison to your competition, just know that it feels a lot longer than it really is! From there you’ll follow the roads back to the start/finish area, but if you are on lap 1, you’ll have to pass right by and do another short out and back before starting all over again. Next time you come around, though, you’ll take that right turn to the finish line!
