Race Description Course Registration Instructions Volunteers

Swim:        snake style swim in a 25 yard pool  

The race begins in the indoor pool

There will be 10 lanes set up in the 25 yard pool, a total of 250 yards.  You will sit and slide into the pool and use steps to exit the pool.  Swimmers will begin one at a time at 5-second intervals.  Each will swim down the first lane, go under the lane line, swim back in the next lane, go under the next lane line, swim down the next lane, etc.  This is called a snake swim...and you should practice going under the lane lines at your own pool before the triathlon.

Our format for the swim includes:

  • swimming in each lane goes only one direction

  • passing is allowed

  • you MUST swim to the wall, touch it, go under the laneline, and push off from wall in next lane

  • flip turns will not be permitted. Use of flip turns will be cause for disqualification from the race.

  • NO diving or jumping into the pool (you'll be seated and then slide in from the side)

  • don't start until we signal YOU that it's your turn to start

 

Bike: route map                    4 miles on low traffic roads, basically flat

The helmet MUST be buckled before you begin to ride and not be unbuckled until you dismount the bike.  Failure to follow this rule results in an automatic DQ (USA Triathlon rule).               

At the start, REMEMBER: DON'T GET ON YOUR BIKE UNTIL YOU CROSS THE MOUNT LINE!
