The swim course is a 600 meter out and back swim with buoys dividing the two lanes. There will be canoes, boats, and lifeguards on the rock jetty to ensure a safe swim environment for the athletes. The race will begin in waves, making for a less crowded start.
The bike course is a 12 mile out and back course starting at the city marina. It will go up to Redwood road, turn left and head south for 6 miles, and then go back along the same route. The bike course will have police at each end of the road and will have a lead car each time a car tries to drive down. There will be signs and police at the turn around point.
