We are thrilled to announce that the Lake Norman YMCA and Ingersoll Rand are again teaming up to bring you the Lake Norman YMCA Sprint Triathlon presented by Ingersoll Rand! Last year was a huge success at the Ingersoll Rand campus. The courses are be safer, parking is plenty, and the event has so much room to grow.

Schedule:

- 5:30 AM – Transition Area Open
- 5:30 AM – Race day registration opens
- 6:30 AM – Race day registration closes
- 7:00 AM – Race Start
- 10:00 AM – Projected awards ceremony (will be adjusted based on last finisher’s time)

Course:

Swim:
The 750 meter swim features an in-water start with the water temperature historically being in the low 80’s so wetsuits are hardly ever permitted. The rectangular shaped course starts right at the beach at the Ingersoll Rand Campus with the swim finish located only about 50 yards down the shore from the start location. The water is usually very flat as the course is situated in a protected area of the lake that is sheltered from the wind. Participants will be required to wear a swim cap that designates which wave they are in. We will provide the swim cap for you at packet pick up. The swim waves and start times will be posted in the Event Details which are posted the week of the event.

Bike:
The bike course is a 12.7 mile loop which begins and ends on the Ingersoll Rand Campus. The new bike course completely avoids downtown Davidson and Davidson College areas but is very similar to the bike course of the previous years. The bike course quickly becomes a ride through the rural roads of far north Mecklenburg County. The course is moderately hilly with a couple of decent size hills – though nothing too intimidating.

Run:
The run course takes place completely on the Ingersoll Rand Campus. The out and back course is also slightly hilly with lots of turns. If the temperatures are high – the run course will be hot – as shade is at a premium.
