What is Aquabike??
An Aquabike is a swim/bike event only. Athletes will follow the same course as Half IronFest, but will finish as they enter transition for the second time. Official time will include the swim course, transition 1, and the bike course. To start the athlete will have to run from swim finish (beach) to bike transition (roughly 300m run/walk). To finish the athlete will cross the finish line which would be around 500m run/walk from bike transition.
Why do an Aquabike?
1. New to the sport - an Aquabike is a fantastic introduction to triathlon. Get a feel for the Half IronFest distance, swimming/riding on course with a group, and transitioning between disciplines.
2. Training - Here is a chance for one more go in a "real life" setting before you take on the big one!
3. Low Impact - Swimming and cycling are both low-impact sports, making them more accessible disciplines to many. If you are unable, or dislike, to run this is the perfect event for you!
Every Aquabike athlete will receive a race kit, shirt, and finisher medal. Awards will be for the top 3 men and top 3 women over all.
