The Kinetic Half is the first half-Iron distance event of the season in the mid-Atlantic region and is staged out of beautiful Lake Anna State Park. A one loop swim, two loop lollipop bike course and a 3 loop run make for an extremely exciting and spectator friendly day! The water temperature should be in the mid 60's, guaranteeing a wetsuit legal swim. The bike course is a revival of a course we used a few years ago that has less traffic and nice rolling hills on great pavement. This is not an easy bike course, but it is quite possibly the best bike course in the world! There are 3 water bottle hand-offs on the bike course located at approximately miles 20, 35 and 45 with sport cap water & Gatorade being handed out. The run course is 3 loops through the park and campgrounds and is all on pavement with rolling terrain. There are 4 aid stations on each loop of the run course; each aid station will have water, Gatorade, ice, flat Coke, Chex mix, oranges, bananas, sweet candy and a porta jon. There are also misting tents available at 2 locations on the course so you can cool off as needed 6 times during the run.
