The swim… Its a 750 Meter swim with the good strong current of the Atlantic Ocean. Temps should be above 78 degrees, so it is likely not going to be wetsuit legal.
The Bike… The bike is an out and back 15 mile ride to North Topsail Beach. Follow Hwy 210 North out of Surf City and enjoy a flat, fast and scenic ride along the coast.
The Run… The run is a 5k that will wind through the accommodating streets of Surf City and finish up close to the fire station near Dolphin Ln
