There will be a pre-race meeting outlining all rules and course procedures on race day at 6:50 am.  All participants must be there to participate.  It is the responsibility of the triathlete to know the course and know where you are going.  If you have a question, please ask!


  • SWIM:  Participants will swim a 300-yard swim in the CCU 25-yard pool (6 full laps – down & back in each lane before moving to the next lane) Due to single file swim start (fastest to slowest), you must indicate on your online entry form your estimated swim time so that you may be placed in the appropriate swim heat. (Please be as accurate as possible for your swim times.)                                                                                                         
    • Both relay teams and individual swimmers will be placed in line according to your estimated swim times.  Each swimmer will enter water single file in lane six and work your way to lane one for the swim exit.  One full lap is done in each lane before ducking under to the next lane to start the next lap.  If someone is hitting your feet, stop at the wall and let them pass.  DO NOT PASS in the middle of the lane.  This can cause injury!  Chip time begins when swimmer crosses the timing mat before entering water. Enter water approximately 20 seconds after the swimmer in front of you.  Jump in feet first after you have heard the beep of your chip crossing the mat.  If you rush, your time may not be captured and time may not start.  
  • T1 (Transition 1) Swim exit will take triathletes to the outside pool patio, where they will run down the sidewalk and enter into the transition area – you must run across the mats and follow path in order to get your correct times.  You must cross the mat BEFORE you mount your bike at the T1 exit.  Once you come to University Blvd, you will take a left and head across the street into Quail Creek neighborhood.
  • BIKE COURSE: The bike course will be a 9.5-mile course through Quail Creek neighborhood & around CCU Campus for 2 loops, and back to Tom Trout Dr & Independence Drive for the T2.  The bike course will take left out of Independence Dr onto University Blvd, then taking an immediate right onto University Drive. Take a right onto Citadel Drive (just before the Clubhouse) follow to the stop sign.  Take a right on Wofford Road then a quick left onto Erskine Drive.  Your next left will be onto Lander Drive.  Follow Lander all the way to Clemson Road.  Take a left onto University Drive once again and follow back to CCU campus.  Take a right at the light on University Blvd, and a left at the traffic light (Chanticleer East).  You will continue around campus for a loop.  Follow campus loop all the way around until you reach the traffic signal at Chanticleer West.  Take a left onto University Blvd.  At the next light, take a right back into Quail Creek for your final loop.  After you finish the large loop in Quail Creek, come back to the main light on University Blvd and take a right for the final half loop around campus.  Continue until you reach Tom Trout Drive (street directly across from TD Field entrance) – turn right on Independence Drive and back into the transition area for T2.
  • T2 (Transition 2) YOU MUST dismount from the bike and run across the timing mats to get your time.  Please dismount and walk/run your bike in to your rack.
  • RUN COURSE: Runners will exit transition with their bib numbers displayed in front.  Immediately turn right onto University Blvd.  At the traffic light, take a right into campus on Chanticleer drive West.  Continue all the way around the campus loop.  At University Blvd, take a right and run down to the next light, taking a right into Blanton Park (you will run the sidewalk counterclockwise). 


  • All cyclists will complete two full laps.  Towards the end of the second lap, cyclists will turn left onto Tom Trout Drive off of Chanticleer Blvd.  There will be a sign and a course monitor to direct.
  • Helmets are mandatory.  All helmets must be fastened before mounting bike and must be fastened until completely dismounted at the end of the bike portion.
  • No drafting on the bike.  Maintain at least 2 bike lengths behind other cyclists and if passing please do so within 60 seconds.
  • All roads remain open during the race.  Please be alert to motorists.  We will have volunteers at major intersections to stop traffic, but it is also your responsibility to be alert to all traffic.
  • Please yield to faster competitors.
  • All participants will receive a chip.  You must be wearing your chip at all times in order for you to have any race results. 
  • RELAYS will pass their chip strap to their teammate before transitioning to the next leg of the race.
  • All participants MUST be wearing their assigned race number on the RUN leg of the race.  No number may result in disqualification.
  • Relay teams’ runner MUST be wearing race number bib when crossing finish line.
  • All bikes must be re-racked at your transition area.
