  • 1.2 Mile Swim: The swim course is a point-to-point course that will start at 6th Street and the Savannah River at the Riverfront Marina. 
  • 56 Mile Bike:  The single-loop route begins at the Transition Area located at the Augusta Rowing Club. Athletes will exit downtown Augusta and head into the back country of Augusta, Georgia. Rolling hills, several long climbs, and some technical turns will greet the athletes along the way.
  • 13.1 Mile Run:  The run course takes athletes through the streets of historic downtown Augusta for a two-loop, flat and fast experience.
