Transition Area:

The transition area will be located on the main parking lot of the Longview Lake beach area. The area has been designed first and foremost with the safety and ease of traffic movement in mind. From the swim, racers will run up on the sidewalk from the lake into the transition area through the Run In Door. You will exit on your bike through the Bike Out Door, which exits onto Pittenger Road. After the bike is completed, racers will enter the transition area through the Bike In Door, (please be careful, this is a HEAVY TRAFFIC area with runners and bikers) rack your bike in its appropriate spot, and head out of the Run Out Door, running onto the running trail. Arrows, signs, and volunteers will help you transition in and out of the area. You will not be able to pick up your bike from transition until all athletes are off the bike course. Historically, this is usually around 10:30AM. This is to keep the roads safe and clear from participant traffic trying to leave the race site. Our number one focus is participant safety.
