Bike: 56 Miles VIEW BIKE COURSE PICS!
The 2015 bike course is now a 56 mile, 1 1/4 lap course. The GWRT will take athletes over some flat fresh pavement and some gentle to rolling hills across the Western Reserve counties with scenic views of Berlin Lake and across the West Branch Revervoir dam. It is a great mix of rolling hills and flat runs! The course will have 2 bike fluid stations located approx. the 20 & 40 mile mark.
The roads are OPEN TO TRAFFIC on the bike course, and the main intersections will be marshaled by police officers and Sheriffs.
PLEASE NOTE: The Army Corps of Engineers run daily dam checks at approx. 8am. which means there will be a vehicle on the dam road that will be making frequent stops on the dam. TAKE CAUTION of this vehicle and please allow it do do its job. This will primarily affect the sprint and olympic distances. Thanks!
