Course

The swim segment is a 400 yard snake swim in the indoor Olympic sized pool at the Jenks Aquatic Center. Lanes will be roped off for 25 yard lanes and racers will complete 16 pool lengths. Racers will move to the next lane at each turn. Click on the map to the left for a larger view of the swim course.


The transition area is located in the parking lot just outside the Jenks Aquatic Center. Racers will exit the pool and prepare for their bike ride. After the swim racers enter from the south end of the transition area and exit with their bike on the north end. Racers must past the mount line prior to getting on their bike.

As a racer finishes the bike course they approach the transition area from the north. Racers must completely dismount from their bike before they cross the dismount line. Racers place their bike back on the rack and exit the transition area on the south end to begin their run.

Click on the map to the left for a larger view of the transition area.


The bike course provides a 12-mile tour of the well-known Green Country south of Tulsa and west of Jenks. The entire course is paved and is mostly flat with a few rolling hills. Bicyclists return to the transition area to begin their run.

The 2-mile run course is on paved streets that wind through Jenks’ neighborhoods and ends at the Jenks High School Track Field. After a lap around the track racers and spectators participate in the finishers’ line festival.


The finishers’ line festival includes food for the participants, food for purchase by spectators and product demonstrations and samples from area vendors. [Full list coming soon]
