This run leg of the Shi~Tri is 3.3 miles long, just slightly longer than your traditional 5k. The course is along the river, so expect some slight twists, turns and uneven surfaces though the course is relatively flat. Work your way up to completing this distance with any combination of a run/walk!
Kayak – The kayak leg of the Shi~Tri is 3.2 miles downriver. Downriver means you can float, and still go in the correct direction, if you do need a break from paddling during this leg! We do recommend that you have some practice launching, getting in, getting out and pulling out your kayak from the river, as this can be a bit difficult! Learning to navigate your kayak away from banks will also be a necessary skill.
Bike – The bike leg of the Shi~Tri is a 9 mile out and back on paved, flat roads. Ensure your bike is in good enough condition to complete this distance. Ensure you are able to complete this distance on your bike and have done some rides with wind as a factor. Much of the bike loop has open fields on one or both sides of the road, meaning a windy day will add some difficulty to the course.
