Swim Course (2.4 miles)

The race kicks off with a single-loop swim in Tempe Town Lake. The deep-water start is just east of the Mill Ave. bridges and begins by heading east. The rectangular course will go just past Rural Road bridge and first turn north and then west all the way back under the Mill Ave. bridges, where another turn south will put athletes on course to head straight back to shore and transition at Tempe Beach Park. Water temperatures should be in the low to mid-60s F.

Bike Course (112 miles)

The relatively flat three-loop course heads out of Tempe and zig-zags out to the Beeline Highway, which gradually climbs approximately 10 miles through the Sonoran Desert to the... full post

What are graduated compression stockings?

When calf muscles contract they squeeze deep major veins in the leg (the popliteal and tibial veins) forcing blood up the legs to the heart. Blood flows along the tibial vein in the lower limb and joins the popliteal vein from the knee upwards.

Compression stockings help increase blood flow in these veins by applying graduated pressure to the leg, improving performance of the calf muscle pump. The pressure is graduated and is greatest around the ankle, decreasing further up the leg.

Compression stockings can be used to help treat conditions associated with poor blood flow in the veins (chronic venous insufficiency).

Conditions which may benefit from medical compression stockings include:

Spider Veins (telangiectasia)
Varicose Veins
Venous Eczema
Venous Ulcers
Lipodermatosclerosis (gradual hardening/thickening of the fatty tissue below the skin due to high pressure in surrounding veins)
DVT Prevention (deep vein thrombosis)
PTS (post-thrombotic syndrome)
Swelling (edema)
Burn Scars
Aching, tired legs

Medical Compression Stockings Classes
Compression stockings are classified according to their tightness when fitted around the leg.

There may be variation in pressure classification between different standards. For example a European standard class 2 medical stocking has a stronger gradual compression compared to a UK standard Class 2. Medical compression stockings are available through prescription, however lower pressure and support stockings can be bought... full post
