2012 Bassman Half Distance Triathlon, Duathlon & Aquabike:
Bass River State Forest is located only an hour from Philadelphia and one hour and a half from the Verrazano Bridge in NYC.
The swim is in the calm and clear waters of Absegami Lake with the start on a well maintained and clean beach area. It will probably be one of your most enjoyable swims.
You will enjoy every segment and finish to a crowd of spectators who can hang out around the picnic tables and playground near the transition area.
The 1.2 mile swim consist of 2 loops in Absegami Lake.
The course is well mark with the largest orange buoys available in the market.
The water temperature has always been in the upper sixties for either the spring or the fall event.
We strongly recommend you wear a wetsuit.
The bike course is primarily right turns on country roads with wide shoulders.
Wait until you are riding on beautiful Bulltown Road!
We will have two bottle water exchanges on the bike route.
The first one will be before the right turn on Bulltown Road on mile 10.
The second is at the entrance of the park before you head the second loop.
The 13.2 mile run course is a fast flat run with lots of shade and on the roads and paths of the campground area of the Bass River State Park.
There will be lots of Hammer Gels, Heed, Water, bread, pretzels and bananas in the 12 water stations.
