DoubleMussel 88.7
Since the mini-Mussel moved to Saturday in 2007, we can offer crazy people - err, dedicated triathletes - the chance to compete in BOTH the mini-Mussel and Musselman Half. Aside from enjoying 88.7 total miles of fun, you get to sleep and eat in between. Fabulous prizes await the man and woman will the lowest combined times, and we'll honor those "going for broke" with extra supplies at the medical tent. Aquabike athletes (half only) can sign up for the DoubleMussel to get a discounted entry (indicate the Aquabike option during registration) but there will not be awards or combined times provided.
Swim course (750 meters)

The deep-water swim course takes place in a canal connecting Seneca Lake to the Seneca River, with an in-the-water start and excellent spectator viewing for the entirety. Water temperature is typically in the mid-70's, so expect wetsuits to be allowed.

Bike course (16mi/26km)

The bike includes sections of the Half course. It winds through Seneca County on the east side of Seneca Lake, on lightly-trafficked, scenic roads dotted with vineyards. The course has rolling hills, but no big climbs.

The sprint run loops through expansive Seneca Lake State Park and Geneva's Lakefront Park, with most of the distance on a lakeside path. The course is completely flat and well-shaded with ancient weeping willow trees.
