Due to the continued development of the Twin Hickory/ Shady Grove area, we have been required by our local law enforcement partners to make changes to our bike & run courses in order to receive permits. Please stay tuned for the updated course maps.

Transition

You will exit the lap pool and run along a carpeted path through the family pool, along the exterior of the YMCA building, and to the asphalt parking lot. Exit the transition area at the end facing Twin Hickory Road towards the mount line. 

You will return on Twin Hickory through the same entrance/exit. Enter transition through the "top" and exit through the "bottom", or the same end you entered from the swim. You'll make a U-turn to your right to start the run course, where you'll find a water/Gatorade station.
