Start with a run along the beach, entering Long Pond for a two-lap 1K swim with a brisk sand run between laps. Head out on the bike for a 20K ride over carriage trails, single track, rocks, roots, and the challenging Fire Tower. Finish the race with a 5K+ trail run over photo-op rock and around Long Pond, finishing on the beach to the roar of the crowd.
