Great race to start the season. Suffolk community college has welcomed us to utilize their Grant Campus
for this triathlon. The course includes a pool swim and fully contained
bike and run courses. Maybe we can get mom and dad to try this one!
Race will begin in the pool as a staggered start with 5 seconds between
each competitor. The athletes will swim a total of 200 yards/8
laps for ages 11-14 (or 100 Yards/4 Laps for ages 7-10) in a snake swim.
Passing is allowed. When finished athletes will step out of the pool
and run to the transition area on a carpeted surface. Bike route is on the Suffolk Campus we will have volunteers along the
course to ensure the safest ride conditions for our Youth. Once the
athletes have left transition, they will ride three loops of the campus
totaling 3. This is a fast and flat course. There will be traffic
officers at both intersections, and volunteers at the bike in/out
locations. Each lap will be marked and coned; however, it is the
athletes responsibility to ensure they complete all three laps before
going into the finishing turnhe run 1 Mile (4 Laps) will be on a flat and fast Surfaced Track. The
run will be very well marked with volunteers at each lap/turn. Upon
completion of the final lap, participants will run through the Finish
Chute in the grassy area.
