The swim will take place in the scenic Cumberland River, maximizing down stream and paths of least resistance. This section of the river has very little current so swim times will be fast.
The bike is set up to be fast. Sprint participants will ride out Hwy 12 to the Davidson County line and back, with Olympic participants making 2 loops.
The run takes you out to the Cumberland River Bicentennial Trail where you'll be surrounded by the sounds of nature and color of wildflowers. The Bicentennial Trail is flat and shaded, making it an ideal course for the run.
