Site Overview | Main Staging Area | Transition Flow
Start your day at the awesome Centennial Sportsplex Pool, then take a short stroll over to the Centennial Park front lawn to your main staging area. Bikes will be staged on the shady front lawn until you take off for a tour of Sylvan Park and Sylvan Heights, followed by a completely flat run around Centennial Park. Post-race activities are adjacent to the bike staging area, at Musicians Corner.

The swim is in the 50 meter indoor pool. You will enter the pool in an "interval start" fashion. Participants line up by race number (beginning with the lowest number to the highest.) Race Numbers are assigned based on your estimated swim time you submitted when you registered. Check out this chart to help you estimate your swim time. Racers are allowed to move to the back of the line to start. Your racking position in transition is also organized by your race number. One person at a time enters the pool and begins swimming when given the start command. Swim down the first lane, touch the wall, go under the lane rope, swim down that lane, and continue the same process until you exit after swimming 4 lengths for a total of 200 meters. When you exit the pool, volunteers will direct you to the transition area where you will begin your bike segment of the race.
There will be no moving up in swim order on race day. Pre-register by the Wednesday night before the race to get a spot in the swim order!!!! All registrants after that time will have the UPPER numbers and be starting at the rear, sorry, no exceptions.
Enjoy an urban tour from Centennial Park in Midtown Nashville, through Sylvan Park, Sylvan Heights and back. This is a two-loop course with moderate climbs here and there. See course maps for flow and detail on the second loop.
Get ready for a scenic run around Centennial Park, home of the iconic Parthenon. Expect a completely flat course on a mix of closed-to-traffic park roads and the Centennial Walking Trail / Greenway. Finish adjacent to the Parthenon front lawn with views of Vanderbilt University and West End Avenue in midtown Nashvllle.
