Woodlake Sprint Triathlon and Duathlon
Interested in competing in the Woodlake Sprint Triathlon or Duathlon? Here is what to expect based on the 2020 race.
The first leg of the triathlon, the swim, was 300 yards out and back for a total of 600 yards. The swim was well manned by boats and kayaks and well supported by those watching from their back yards and the dock area. Large orange buoys marked the course for swimmers and their height and color made spotting easy.
After the swim, triathletes had to run only a few yards to the transition area, but this run was full of mulch and rocks which made for many dirty feet crammed into cycling shoes.
The bike course started flat as it wound its way out of the country club and onto the open roads. Once in the open, the course became hilly with a major hill at the eight and twelve mile mark (this was also an out-and-back course). The course was well marked with arrows on the road and friendly volunteers at each turn as well as at the half-way mark of the race. The bike portion was 17.2 miles.
The run course started inside the transition area which made for very fast T2s (the time elapsed between ending the bike portion of the race and beginning the run portion). The run was fast and flat, although portions of it went off road, which was not advertised. Recent rains in the area made this portion more challenging. This was a 3.1 mile loop course that offered nice views of the country club houses and lake.
Once runners crossed the finish line they were given a finisher metal and had pictures taken. There was a festive atmosphere at the finish with music, hot dogs and sports drinks.
Taking place at the same time as the triathlon was a duathlon, which consists of running and biking only. Duathlon participants began by running the 3.1 mile run course, biking the 17.2 mile bike course, and finishing back on the run course.
This was an efficiently run race with an abundance of friendly volunteers. If you don't have plans for your next Memorial Day weekend, consider heading down to Vass, North Carolina and participating in the Woodlake Sprint Triathlon or Duathlon.
