That’s right, in Branson you get not one, but two different transition locations. This may seem a little different but no worries, we have all the complications figured out for you…

Set-Up and Bike Check In (Saturday September 21st)

On Saturday in order to drop off your bike you will need to drive yourself to Moonshine Beach at:

Moonshine Beach:
3778 Missouri 165
Branson, MO 

T1 is about 11 miles away from the expo/finish line transition2. There will be a drop off zone and limited parking at T1. You will be able to park, check your bike, and then head back to the Expo or your hotel after this is done. We will have security at Moonshine Beach (T1) overnight to make sure your bikes stay safe and sound.

Race Day (Sunday 22nd)

When you pick up your packet you will receive two plastic bags. One says “Swim to Bike Bag” and the other says “Dry Clothes Bag”. These are for all of your gear for T1. In the morning we will have a drop off location for your Dry Clothes Bag outside of transition1. Once you finish your swim you will need to put your wetsuits, goggles, cap, etc in your Swim to Bike bag and leave it by your transition spot. We will come and pick up all bags and bring them to T2 (Branson Landing) for you. PLEASE REMEMBER TO LABEL YOUR BAGS WITH YOUR RACE NUMBER (stickers will be provided). We cannot return them to you if we do not know who they belong to.

Once you leave Moonshine Beach on your bike you WILL NOT be able to come back. Transition will be closed. If you have a question regarding this, please e-mail

Shuttle Service For Swim Start

To better plan your race morning, the shuttle ride from T2 to T1, is approximately 15 minutes. The shuttles will run continuously from Branson Landing  to Moonshine Beach from 4:45am though 9:00am (or when all spectators have been returned to Branson Landing). Shuttles will be available for all athletes, families, and spectators on race morning. There will be no shuttles post race.

You will be able to drop your gear in T2 starting at 4:30am on race morning and then take the shuttle to T1. BIKES WILL NOT BE ALLOWED ON THE SHUTTLES.
