Parking on race morning isn’t nearly as bad as you might think. Where ever you are coming from, head towards downtown Madison to the Capital. When you get to the Capital,your best bet would be to park to the north of the Capital building. (You
can park south
to get a “closer” spot, but expect more traffic, more people, etc.)To watch the swim, you can find a spot anywhere along the Monona Terrace. The roof-top will be packed with people. The North Helix can be a good spot to watch from.Ground level can also be good. If watching the swim start is not that important to you, you won’t have to get down there until 7:30-7:45 in order to start seeing everyone come outof the water.
Chris’s ETA:
Swim Finish: 8:15-8:30
The lady atop theCapital Building faces allthe action (swim course,transition, finish line, etc.)So if you get turnedaround while downtown,look up at the Capital, thelady up there will pointyou in the right direction!
TIME TO HEAD TO THE BIKE COURSE – Two Options (The Hills or Verona)
Your only task here is to get from where you parked (probably near the Capital) onto the Beltline (Highway 12/14, the Orange Highway). Depending on where you parked, your  best bets will include John Nolen Dr or Park St. Once you decide where you want to go (one of the hills or Verona), get on the Beltline and head WEST. If you plan on hills, go tothe page below, if you plan on going to Verona, skip to option two, two pages below. (Just an FYI, the bike takes up a major portion of the day, 6 and half to 8 hours most likelyfor me, so feel free to move around the course if you like. Perhaps go to Verona for the first loop, then come on out to the hills the second loop, or vise versa.)
 Now put on your running shoes pick your hill to cheer the bikers up them! The first is Old Sauk, long and gradual. The second is Timber Line, short and steep. The last isMidtown Road, a hair longer and steep. The black dots represent the bike course. It a 2 loop course so we will pass through TWICE. People will pass through the same point noless than 2 hours apart. For most people more like 2:15-2:45 or more. After the first pass, it is very easy to switch hills, just follow the map below (However please do not expectto be able to drive on the course, use the round about routes to switch hills.) Chris’s ETA’s – Old Sauk – (Mile 44) – 10:25 - 10:40Timber Line (Mile 45) – 10:30 – 10;45Midtown Road (Mile 49) 10:45 – 11:00As for the second loop on the course,hopefully I’ll be back around in 2 and ½hours give or take 5-10 minutes after I pass the first time.These could change DRASTICALLYdepending on what the day brings, but itshould be a loose guideline hopefully.
