The 2.4 and 1.2 mile swim will take place in Gallants Channel in salt water. The swim will start in deep water in a counter clockwise direction. The swim date and time are set by the current so the tide will be lag meaning the swimmers will have no current.
The flat and fast bike course will start in the Town of Beaufort and send the riders through the town of Morehead City, Newport, Havelock and the rural roads of Craven County. The 112 mile bike will include a 2 1/2 loop section outside of town.
