Lake Dunn is the location of the swim course and the start of the MightyMite Triathlon. The looped swim course begins and finishes from the boat ramps at the swim/bike transition. As you exit the water, swimmers will start the 13-mile bike leg.
TRANSITION #1 - VILLAGE CREEK STATE PARK
After you exit the water you will run up the hill to transition one, un-rack your bike, and walk to the bike mount area. Once on your bike you will start the bike portion with a downhill and sharp right hand turn. Use caution when negotiating this turn. You will bike around the parking area, which is flat until you take a right hand turn at the Visitor's Center, where you will encounter a short steep hill. During your recovery from that short climb you will take a left hand turn onto Highway 284/Newcastle Rd. You will go south on Highway 284 until you reach the East Arkansas Community College. Along the way on Highway 284 you will encounter one left hand turn at Highway 306. Spectators, relatives, and friends can take a right hand turn off of Highway 306 onto Highway 1 and go south to Forrest City for the race finish line, located at Dillard Ave. and Forrest. After you take a left hand turn off of Highway 284 into transition two at The East Arkansas Community College, you will dismount your bike at the dismount area and walk your bike to your rack. You will rack your bike and then proceed to start the final, running leg of the race.
TRANSITION #2 - EAST ARKANSAS COMMUNITY COLLEGE
You will exit transition two and run through a portion of the college to a left hand turn onto Highway 284/Newcastle Rd. This is an out and back course on Highway 284/Newcastle Rd. You will find flat terrain all the way to the finish line at East Arkansas Community College
At the completion of the out and back run course the finish line will be located at the south parking lot. Once you cross the finish line you will make your way back to the parking lot to collect your bike and belongings from T2.
