One of our top pics in the Deep South to race, this course has a bit of everything in it. The point to point swim with the current makes the day go quick and the long low rollers are fun to punch up and over on the bike course. The run is challenging but not as much as its big brother Ironman Chattanooga. For this training plan we built in proper training stress (TSS) for a more challenging bike, and low grade hill repeats in the final build block to strengthen your overall run finish for raceday. —Haluk Sarci, TSA Level II Coach
