Toad Suck 40K bike Course: 
Used for the Tri / Du / Aqua Bike divisions 40K out and back
The Toad Suck does one Lap of the 40 K Bike Course  Most roads paved within the last few years, smooth and fast. The Course contains a approximately 1250 feet of climbing. Remember we're in the foothills  of the Ozark Mountains. Course is very doable on Tri Bike. If your strong rider a Disc Wheel shouldn't be a problem. Although I personally would use a deep Dish or standard spoke wheel.

RUN: Sprint Tri Course: 3.2 miles

The run course is and out and back is fairly flat and very fast! Aid Stations will be
approximately every mile. They will be stocked with ice, water, sports drink.

RUN: Toad Suck ( 10K / 6.2 Miles)
