Welcome to the 8th annual "Race of Grace". We are excited about our race this year, especially after the great turnout last year. We appeciate all the positive feedback about the new course last year. This is a USAT sanctioned event and we will follow all rules accordingly.
The course consist of a .25 mile swim which will be a one turn v shaped course in a privately owned lake located at 10391 Rd 614 Philadelphia, Ms. 39350. We will have a 5 second interval start according to estimated swim times.
The bike course is an out and back loop consisting of 18 miles of rolling hills, with a couple of prettty good climbs along with some really fast spots. The course is well marked and there will be support staff at each intersection. The bike ends back at the lake.
The run is a 5k out and back. There will be an aid station located at mile one offering gatorade and water. Cool sponges are also offered to help beat the heat at the turn around!
