Chapel Hill Triathlon – Course



The swim takes place in the 5-lane pool of the UNC Wellness Center.  Swimmers will enter and exit the pool area through separate doors.  Volunteers will be standing at the swim exit to help point you towards the transition area.


Once you mount your bike on Meadowmont Lane, you’ll take a right on Sprunt Street and then navigate your way through the beautiful streets of Meadowmont.  Please be careful coming down all hills as there are sharp turns ahead.  Pinehurst Drive will take you along the beautiful golf course and out towards Ephesus Church Road.  After turning right onto Pope Rd and Old Chapel Hill Road, you’ll then take a right on Farrington Road, which is straight and fast.  Bring it home via Route 54 and before you know it you’ll hear the cowbells ringing at the race site.


The out-and-back run course starts and finishes on a lovely greenway.  But the bulk of the run goes through the quiet residential streets of Meadowmont.  Enjoy the tour of the lovely homes, each with large front porches and unique architecture.  You’ll have a chance to grab a cool drink at both ends of the run course.


The finish takes place in front of the UNC Wellness Center, where the party will be rockin’ and where the sense of your amazing accomplishment will be celebrated by many cheering fans.
