Now comes the hard part whether you’re doing the half, full, or aquabike. THE TAPER!! Be smart! The long training rides and/or runs should be behind you as you approach race days those workout become shorter and less intense. Good luck to those racing on September 20th, and THANK YOU to ALL the gracious volunteers donating your personal time to make this event a success. Happy Birthday #10 Redman!!!

TURNAROUND and head east back to Hiawausee. Left on Hiawausee and go north to Deep Fork Tree Farm driveway…. about a 1/2 mile past 2nd St; TURNAROUND and head south back to 15th St; Right on 15th and head back to Post; Right on Post and go to 2nd/Rt 66; left on 2nd/Rt 66 and return to Edmond Park (Midwest Blvd). 2nd St will be coned to a one lane road…but bike traffic should be only going in one direction on the out route and on the return route.
