The 2014 Asheville Triathlon event will begin with a 400 meter outdoor pool swim at the Asheville Rec Park pool. The swim will feature a time-trial start with the fastest swimmers going first. Swimmers will enter the water by running across a mat at the water’s edge near the shallow end of the pool and run into begin the swim. During the registration process you will be asked to submit your 100 yard swim time. This is not the fastest you can swim 100 yards but the time you expect to average during the entire swim.
After the 400 meter swim, athletes will exit the pool and quickly enter the transition area.
The bike course will feature some rolling and challenging hills making for a true Asheville kind of bike ride! The 11.6 mile course will consist of some flat roads, turning into rolling landscape before returning to the Rec Park for a very fast run. The roads will be open to the public so all participants are urged to be alert to traffic. All intersections with a traffic light and/or turn will have law enforcement stopping traffic.
The run is an out and back style course and is one of the flattest 5k’s you will find in the area! Runners will stay on the right side of the road for the run. While the road will be open to traffic, most of the course is lightly traveled. Flat and fast is the name of the game on this 5K.
The Asheville Triathlon is a super event for every level of triathlete, from novice to elites.
Novice + Beginner tri-athletes love this race! The pool swim is great for new swimmers & the run is a flat, ‘easy’ course to navigate. Please note: the bike course has been challenging to some beginners in year’s past. Be prepared to ride over several challenging hills with steep grades. You will be required to stay on your bike, you may not get off your bike and push it up hills, this is a safety hazard.
Elite athletes – get ready for a PR! This race is fast and is a huge hit among local elites. The time trial swim start in a 50m pool allows swimmers to spread out. The bike leg is flat the first couple miles, so get down in your aero bars and push it. The middle section has some steep hills just get outta the saddle and roll over em! There are several downhill sections that are smokin’ fast! Many elites have PR’d during the 5k run, bring your racing flats!
All volunteers will receive an awesome race tee, yummy food and will get to enjoy in all the event festivities.
