The event takes place in the scenic Deer Creek State Park in Pickaway County (about 35 minutes South of Columbus, OH) and features a mostly flat and fast course with a few rolling hills on the bike.  Triathletes will be swimming a rectangular course along the beach while duathletes will start their race with a run within the park. The bike course take place on the roads surrounding Deer Creek Lake. The races finish with an out and back run course within the park. This race is a perfect “first race of the season” to welcome you back to racing and get you ready for an exciting season of racing.
