Course Info: Swim: The 1.2 mile modified rectangular swim will take place in the Delaware River, at Smithfield Beach. Located inside the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area, it offers great views of the Appalachian Mountains in a picturesque setting.
Bike: The 56 mile bike course starts with long flat stretches and some challenging hills, all on closed roads through the Park and the Village of Shawnee. The ride continues on parts of the original Tour Du Pont & Tour de Trump cycling tours, through Delaware Water Gap and into the flat, open roads of Cherry Valley. Quiet farmland and stunning views will surround you as you approach a technical part of the course around mile 40. After a couple of descents you will be on the homestretch of Route 209 riding from Snydersville all the way to West Main Street in Stroudsburg, into Transition 2.
Run: Utilizing the popular Pocono Marathon Run for the Red course, this 13.1 mile out and back route takes runners through the historic, tree lined streets of Downtown Stroudsburg. A couple of hills are present early in the course, which flatten out for the majority of the first half. A gradual incline approaches just before the turnaround, and then you will have a good downhill to kick start your return. As you head towards Stroudsburg you will have one small hill at mile 11 then you'll go through the quiet neighborhood streets welcoming you towards the finish. The last mile takes you onto Lower Main Street where you'll turn for home with a view of the downtown landscape as you cross the finish line on historic Main St. in downtown Stroudsburg.
