Course

A time trial start for a 200 meter swim at The Aviation Challege swim area will crank this race up to an 8 mile Mt Bike Course that slips through a wide variety of hardwoods, cedar and pine groves. You will get to see lots of airplanes, rockets and space stuff as you wind though a course that looks flat but will fool you with climbs and twists, creek crossings and jumps. The 3.1 mile run is a mix of dirt gravel and pavement that will culminate at the Aviation Callenge Pavilian. Awards in the Shade.
