COURSE DESCRIPTION:

Swim Course Description - 1K

Bring your wetsuits! The Nueces River is spring fed by 1.2 million gallons of new water a day. The swim course begins with an out and back section and then a few surprises hit you…like a dam, for instance. Be ready for adventure on the swim unlike any other race. Following the swim, athletes ascend a steep 150' foot staircase that leads to the transition area.

Bike Course Description - 10 Miles

The bike course at Camp Eagle is one of the most scenic, yet challenging courses in the country. The bike starts by plunging downhill before taking you along the shores of the beautiful, spring-fed river. Enjoy the downhill and flat river stretch because there's some climbing ahead! The trails wind through the hill country setting accentuated by several 30-mile vistas. After flying through a dry creek-bed, the trail drops back down towards the river and your awaiting run.

Run Course Description – 6K

There is not a lot of time to think about the pain as you navigate all the obstacles (rocks), inclines (big hills), and water (that river again). This challenging course will leave you wanting more!

WETSUIT RULES:

XTERRA Competition Rules

1. Swim:

1.1. Wetsuits are allowed based on water temperature measured the day prior to the event and confirmed the day of the event. Where water temperatures are close to limits, the decision will be made one hour before the start of the first swim.

USAT Article IV, Swimming Conduct Rules

4.4. Wet suits. Each age group participant shall be permitted to wear a wet suit without penalty in any event sanctioned by USA Triathlon up to and including a water temperature of 78 degrees Fahrenheit. When the water temperature is greater than 78 degrees, but less than 84 degrees Fahrenheit, age group participants may wear a wet suit at their own discretion, provided however that participants who wear a wet suit within this temperature range shall not be eligible for prizes or awards.(Specifically: the athlete will not be eligible for XTERRA Points.)

Age group participants shall not wear wet suits in water temperatures equal to or greater than 84 degrees Fahrenheit. The wetsuit policy for elite athletes shall be determined by the USAT Athletes Advisory Council. The AAC has set the wetsuit maximum temperature for elite/pros at 68 degrees for swim distances less than 3000 meters and 71.6 degrees for distances of 3000 meters or greater. Effective January 1, 2013, any swimmer wearing a wetsuit with a thickness measured in any part greater than 5 millimeters shall be disqualified.

4.6. Measuring Water Temperature. It is recommended, but not required that the water temperature for a race be finally determined by a measurement made within 2 hours of the race start. A water temperature measurement should also be taken prior to any pre-race meetings in order to forecast to the athletes as early as possible the likely water temperature on race day and the likelihood of whether wet suits will be allowed on race day.
