Once out of the water and onto the bike athletes ride around Lake Harmony and out to the Pocono Raceway for a loop around the famous NASCAR track. Once exiting the track, the country roads of Tunkhannock Township will serve as the bulk of the Olympic Course before heading back to Split Rock Resort. The Olympic Course has only about 950ft of elevation gain over the course of the route. The back half of the Half distance course is intentionally challenging. After leaving Tunkhannock Township, Half Athletes will ride through the rolling hills of Hickory Run State Park, through the quaint town of White Haven and over the majestic Walter Dam. At the 47.5mm they will encounter the “Dam Hill”. This short (500m) steep (12%) hill provides one last test of the legs before heading back to Split Rock for the spectator friendly 13.1-mile run course. This ride is a lot of things, but never boring. Stunning views of the Raceway, farm fields, mountain sides, dams, streams and lakes will keep your spirits high as you ride through the foothills of the Pocono Mountains.

The run course is as spectator friendly as any in the country while utilizing the terrain to keep it interesting for the athletes. The signature element is a short punchy climb marking the first 200-m of each loop followed by 2-miles of net downhill and a final rise towards the finish/expo area. Olympic Rev athletes run 2-loops, Half Rev athletes 4-loops. Spectators can enjoy the rockin’ music, Rev3 Jumbotron, Kids Zone, VIP Area and the festival atmosphere of the finish line while getting to see their athlete many times over the course of the 6.2 or 13.1-mile run. The course finishes at the expo field of Split Rock Resort where you are only steps away from your room where you can shower and join the post-race party.
