The Course


The Swim:

Athletes start their day on the beach of Raccoon River park. This public beach will be open only to RipRoar athletes who will swim within the normal roped in beach area. Seniors will complete two laps of the swim course with a brief run on shore, intermediate and juniors will each complete one lap. Most athletes will be able to touch in all divisions.  

 

The Bike:

This pancake flat bike course is very technical and will be great for developing bike handling skills on both 90 degree and 180 degree turns. Seniors will complete 3 laps, Intermediates 2 laps and Juniors 1 lap of the course before returning to the transition area. This course is perfect for spectators and will allow all loved ones to watch a large portion of the bike

 

The Run: 

The running portion of our event will take place on the interior paved trails of Raccoon River Park. If the weather permits athletes will run on the east side of the lake around trails that are more tucked away from the elements. If this is not possible seniors will complete 2 laps while Intermediates and Juniors complete 1 lap of a flat and open course.
