The Goose Pond Island Half Iron & Sprint Triathlons return to the Goose Pond Colony Resort, located in Scottsboro, Alabama on Sunday, May 28, 2017. Events are a joint effort of Peak Racing Events of Georgia and Endurane Sports Management of Tennessee. We invite all to come enjoy the beauty and challenge awaiting in our host Northern Alabama venue!
The 1.2 mile swim will be in the pristine waters of Lake Guntersville. The triathlon will have wave starts beginning at 7:30 a.m. Course will follow the buoys in a loop course. The protected waters of Lake Guntersville will have little or no current and should offer a great opportunity for a personal record swim time.
The 56 mile bike makes use of the natural terrain of the area. Scottsboro is located in the Sequatchie Valley in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. Course will exit Goosepond Colony and bike towards the historic Jackson County Courthouse. Once past the courthouse square, cyclists will head out to the surrounding countryside for a fast ride along rural roads. The bike route will be fairly flat and fast.
The 13.1 mile run will leave transition and run along the golf course before turning into the campground. After looping the campground runners will continue in rural neighborhoods and roads. The run provides views of Lake Guntersville as well as plentiful wildlife.
Sprint race includes a 500 meter Swim, 12 mile Bike & 5K run.
