Map.

SWIM: The swim start is from a beach to the east of the boat ramp. The course is a counterclockwise, triangular loop in the deepest part of Versailles Lake. Lifeguards will be patrolling the course on rowboats. Kayak division racers will complete a 2 km paddle extending to near the park dam.

BIKE: The mountain bike segment is the highlight of the race. The most notable feature of the course is the amazing Cliffside trail, climbing high above the expansive valley below. The course will traverse scenic and fun singletrack, including several climbs and descents with elevation changes over 200 vertical feet. The surface is nearly all dirt single-track.

RUN: The run course utilizes most of the park's hiking trails, including #1, #2 and #3. There will be several steep up and downhills, rooty sections, and stairs. It is a very challenging course. An aid station will be located at the transition area and at approximately miles 1 and 3 on the run course, at a two-way portion of trail connecting trail #1 to trail #2.

AWARDS: Overall top three men and women receive plaques. Top three in each age group receive medals. XTERRA sponsors provide several nice items given at random. While you're waiting for awards, enjoy fruit, cookies, and a sandwich from Subway of Versailles.

CAMPING: Camping is available on site. Sites can be reserved throughhttp://www.indiana.reserveworld.com/
