If you haven't heard yet....Ironman is coming to Princeton, NJ in 2014. Exact date is Sept. 21st, 2014.
Although the race is going to be of the 70.3 variety, and the swim will take place in the same lake as NJ State, at Mercer County Park, there aren't too many details yet, so keep checking here or on Ironman's site for additional information.
Athletes will begin the swim at the regatta finish line and it is a rectangular shaped course. Buoys will be on the swimmers left except for the final turn into finish buoy. Mercer Lake is a man made lake. It has a consistent depth of 8-12’. It is typically very calm with very little current. Lake temperature in September should be in the mid to upper 60’s.
The one loop bike course will begin and finish at Mercer County Park. Athletes will make there way from the suburban park setting to the rolling country side, farms and horse farms of rural Monmouth County. Mile 1-8 is relatively flat, 8-48 is a mixture of flat with some rolling hills and 48-56 is generally flat.
The two loop run course will take place primarily on paved jogging paths within the park. Athletes will make their way to nearby Mercer County College and will run through the tree lined center of campus, around the soccer and baseball venues before turning back onto the path connecting the college with the park. After the second lap, runners will finish in the brand new, six million dollar event Pavilion within Mercer County Park.
