Athletes will start and finish their race at the iconic and historic Algonquin Resort. The saltwater swim course is in the protected, warm waters of Katy’s Cove, which is sheltered by a controlled causeway, allowing the water temperature to warm up to a comfortable 22 degrees July average. This is in sharp contrast to the frigid Bay of Fundy water on the other side of the causeway. Katy’s Cove has been a part of St. Andrews summer experience for generations. The beautiful sandy cove is unique with its lake-like conditions in warm salt water – unique to the sport of triathlon in this part of Canada.HALF SWIM COURSE MAP
Our spectacular bike course parallels the Passamaquoddy Bay and the St. Croix inlet and takes athletes towards the Town of St. Stephen and the Maine (U.S.A.) border. Our course begins on the controlled Highway # 127 which is closed to all, but local residents. The course then enters the entirely closed Highway # 1 multi-lane highway, which is closed to vehicle traffic on race day, giving our athletes the opportunity to race the majority of their bike leg on an entirely closed multi-lane highway. The bike course combines rolling hills with scenic views of Passamaquoddy Bay, St. Croix Inlet and historic Champlain Island.HALF BIKE COURSE MAP
