The City of Oaks plays host to this urban race, with its finish in the heart of the city. Athletes will begin their day with a 1.2-mile swim in Jordan Lake in Chatham County. The 56-mile bike course will take athletes through rural Chatham and Wake Counties before entering downtown Raleigh to transition to the run. The two-loop, 13.1-mile run course winds through downtown, around the Capital Building, out Hillsborough St. and through N.C. State University before heading down Fayetteville St. for an amazing finish in City Plaza.
