Jessica Jones -Rev3 Branson!

If you are looking for a challenging race and family fun city, then Branson is a must do with the Revolution 3 series.  Branson is located in southern Missouri in the popular Ozark Mountains.  It has the bright lights, small city feel to it and immediately there is something you can find to enjoy.  Branson is known as the “Live Music Show Capital of the World.”  It also has shopping, good food, museums, and an international award-winning theme park, Silver Dollar City.  But perhaps the most appealing part of Branson is what it can offer for outdoor activities.  Immediately you will notice how beautiful the area is, from the lakes, the hills, to the numerous championship golf courses.  This is not a race that you will go to and sit in your hotel room all weekend.  It’s guaranteed fun for the entire family!

Now for the best part of Branson, the race course!  Branson is unique in that it has two transition areas.  The swim starts at Moonshine Beach in the placid waters of Table Rock Lake.  Water temps borderline wetsuit legal, so come prepared for all scenarios.  Once out on the bike course, you will notice immediately that it is not only beautiful, but also extremely challenging.  The 56 bike course takes over a 4 lane highway, with two loops on this highway.  During this portion you are sure to either go up or down, there is not a flat section on the course.  You will ride into Transition 2 and begin running in a popular shopping area, making it very spectator friendly.  You will notice that while the bike course is hilly, the run is flat with almost no elevation change.

Afterwards, enjoy post race activities that only Revolution 3 can provide.  Branson is sure to be challenging, scenic, and fun filled for everyone.
