Half Iron Run Course - 13.1miles
The Half Iron Run course travels south of the park after a few turns to get you onto the west side of Veazie Cumberland - so pay attention to the cones, signs, police officers and volunteers!
The course travels south on Veazie Cumberland to 384th street where there is a turnaround at mile 2.4. You'll return to Veazie Cumberland and head south to mile 5.2 and the southern turnaround on 292nd Ave SE. THERE IS NO LONGER A TURNAROUND ON SE 408TH ST. This was replaced by extending the southern turnaround on 292nd. At Mile 7.1, you'll return to SE 384th for another 2-mile out-and-back and return to the park where you'll do 2 loops around Deep Lake before your triumphant finish

PLEASE NOTE this course alteration for the safety of our athletes: All athletes must be to mile 7.1 by 3:05 pm. This at the intersection of 384th St. and Veazie-Cumberland Road as you're running back toward the park. If you arrive after 3:05pm, you'll be directed north to the park and will bypass the 2nd 2-mile out-and-back on 384th. We invite you to continue on the regular Half Iron run course and enjoy the triumphant finish line after running 2 laps around the lake (or only one if you prefer). Athletes who use the Skip-Ahead won't have an official finish time - but you'll cross the finish line!
This local Half Iron triathlon is much smaller than an Ironman-branded event....200-300 athletes compared to 1500-2000. This results in the final athletes being very spread out and often can't see a course official or even another athlete for long periods of time. (Safety in numbers and all that) Because of that, we need to put this process in place that ensure our course directors can keep watchful eyes on athletes toward the end of the race who might need extra assistance. We hope you understand the necessity.

Super Sprint and Sprint Run 2.8 miles
The 2.8 mile Sprint Run course is a 2-loop run around Deep Lake Park on the trail that surrounds the lake. Be sure to pay attention to the volunteers at the end of each loop so that you head in the right direction - either out to a 2nd loop or across the FINISH LINE.
Aid station at the beginning of each loop.
This run is unpaved and on a hard-packed gravel trail. You could opt for trail shoes, but they aren't necessary - regular running shoes will work just fine.
