Course Support

All athletes are encouraged to bring their preferred endurance fuels on the course. For the bike, the course maps have the location of three Kwik Trips. These gas stations are more the happy to provide you with water, Gatorade, Snickers, and other goodies to keep you energized. All you have to do is bring a few American dollar bills along. They also take credit cards if that's your thing.


Bike Course Maps (in PDF for your printing pleasure):

  • Full Course: Start at SBR/RBS, two loops and return (112 mi)
  • Single Loop: Start at SBR/RBS, one loop and return (~75 miles)
  • Two Loop: Start at SBR/RBS and complete two loops. (80 miles)
  • Run Course: We always start atop the Monona Terrace Parking on the east side (closest to the swim start).

Here's a map of all the spots involved in the WIBA weekend. The official swim course is in blue. We'll be on other side of the lake by the swimming icon. The bike course is green, while the run course is in red. All the nearby hotels have the bed icons. Click on each one to get a link to each one or see the list below.
