Beginning at the dock near the swim beach, Olympic athletes will swim a clockwise, rectangular course, turning right at the 2nd green buoy and keeping all buoys on their right. Water temps typically hover around 60° at this time of year so wetsuits are HIGHLY recommended! Kiddie pools will be provided to rinse the sand from your feet on your way to T1.

Rolling hills at the base of the fabulous Flatirons! The views on this course can’t be beat! Athletes will leave the park through the main entrance, then head south for a right on Jay Rd. At about the 3 mile marker, you will vere right onto 28th St, then again onto N Foothills Hwy. At about the 7 mile point you will come to the intersection where Sprint athletes vere right… Olympic athletes should continue north for about 3 miles to a right hand turn onto Nelson Rd. After less than half a mile you will approach the 1st aid station, then continue a little over 5 miles before turning right onto N 75th St. Travel south for approximately 1.5 miles before a jog west to 73rd, then another 1.5 before a right onto Niwot and a left onto 63rd. Fuel up at the 2nd aid station… just in time to turn right onto the Diagonal Hwy.
Due to the construction on the corner of Diagonal and Jay, all bikers will ride on Diagonal Hwy for a ½ Mile before making a sharp right into the Private Entrance of the Boulder Reservoir. You will ride on a 420 foot section of dirt road which will be covered up so that you do not have to dismount, but ride carefully! Once you are in the park, you will use Reservoir Rd to get back to Transition.
NOTE: You will be cycling on roads that are open to traffic. Please stay right and stay on the shoulder. If you would need to leave the boundaries of the shoulder to pass… DON’T PASS!
