Greater Raleigh is one of the Southeast's most dynamic destinations. The city is full of incredible restaurants, live music venues, museums, the arts, shopping and family fun—make sure to stay a few days to truly experience all it has to offer. You can find the perfect antique brooch at one of the largest flea markets in North Carolina, sweep up a designer handbag at a specialty boutique in North Hills or Cameron Village, or shop the latest trends at one of the area's nine major shopping areas. Athletes and spectators can expect a warm welcome in the City of Oaks—home to thousands of oak trees—from the moment they arrive.

Athletes will begin their day with a 1.2-mile swim in Jordan Lake in Chatham County. The 56-mile bike course will take athletes through rural Chatham and Wake Counties before entering downtown Raleigh to transition to the run. The two-loop, 13.1-mile run course winds through downtown, around the Capital Building, out Hillsborough Street, and through NC State University before heading down Fayetteville Street for an amazing finish in City Plaza.
