The SPRINT swim is a single 750 m triangular loop starting from the Horseshoe Bay Beach. Wetsuits are allowed if temperatures meet ITU regulations. The cycling leg is mostly flat with one rise. It starts with a clockwise loop going 3/4 of the way around Wasa lake and then spins around to follow the Canadian Rockies and the Kootenay River heading south toward the Heritage Town of Fort Steele. The return portion takes cyclists directly back to the transition area via the south park entry/exit. The triathlon will wrap-up with 2 flat out-and-back run segments, with a cruise by the transition zone in between.
The Super Sprint will have a swim course parallel to the shore and the run is a shorten version of the Sprint, the bike course will leave the transition area to Wasa Lk rd to the south highway intersection to north park entrance back onto Wasa Lk rd where you ride to the transition area (1 loop of the lake). Map and info to be updated soon.
