400m Time Trial Swim, 20k Bike, 5k Run

The swim is a 400m (8 lengths of the pool) time trial swim. Swimmers will enter at the southeast-most lane of the pool, swim one length (50m) and move under to the next lane. Swimmers must stay on the right and pass on the left.


Each participant must provide the time they expect to finish the 400m swim. The start order will be assigned according to the seed times, fastest seed going first. The start order is also subject to the judgement of the Race Committee and may be based on past performance. The order will be posted at packet pick-up. Timing officials will start swimmers every 5 to 10 seconds, or as needed to maintain good spacing.

Bike Course

The bike course has two turn around points for a double pronged out-and-back route. It starts at the transition area, initially heading south, to turn west onto Bullock Ave. The route enters the NM Tech campus, continues on Olive Ln., turns west onto Canyon Drive, and then north on East Road, goes past the EMRTC building and continues north on East Road to the first turnaround point (before the I-25 underpass). The course returns to the EMRTC building and turns west on Bravo Road, heading uphill toward M Mountain. The course then turns south to the next turn around. Bicyclists will head back toward the transition area on a mostly downhill return. The route returns to head east on Bravo Road, east on Canyon Road, northeast on Olive Lane, and east on Bullock Ave. to the transition area.

Run Course

The run is a flat 5k with 1 turnaround. Starting at the transition area, the course proceeds north on El Camino Real for 1.1 miles, turning left onto the ditch bank, until reaching Newberry St. Participants turn right - until the turnaround, returning east back to El Camino Real. It then heads south for .6 miles until the finish at the transition area.
