Race Morning Reminders
Dont forget your bike helmet, no riders will be allowed on the course without one.
Transition area will close at 8:45 am (CST) sharp for all Sprint, Junior and Senior racers. You must have everything set up and be out of the transition area so we can start the race on time.
Junior and Senior racers should make sure they bring some extra warm clothing to wear while waiting to go off. (You wont be able to get back into transition area once the Sprint race starts.)
Mandatory course talk will begin at 8:45 am (CST) outside the transition area.
Spectators will be allowed in the pool gallery during the swim. Entry to the pool gallery is directly across from the Wellness Room.
The swim start will take place in numerical order. The interval between racers will be 10 seconds. It is the racers responsibility to be at the swim start on time. Please be ready to go in the waiting area.
Make sure you have your race number on the front of your body or clothing when you finish the run. We cant count you in the results if we cant see your number.
Body Markers will be available outside the transition area. Please make sure you get body marked on race morning.
When starting out on the bike course, athletes must NOT mount their bikes until they cross the mounting line. There will be volunteers on the course letting you know where this is. Athletes must also dismount at this line and run their bikes into the transition area for safety purposes.
Make sure to stay to the right side of the road on the bike course unless you are passing. Once you have passed (on the LEFT), move back to the right side of the road. Be LOUD on the bike course; let a rider know you will pass by saying, On your left! Be Safe! The course will be partially closed, but the police may have to let some vehicles through so be aware of what is going on around you.
Athletes in the Sprint Division will do TWO LOOPS on the bike course. We will explain this during the pre-race course talk.
Athletes in the Junior & Senior Division will turn around just before Cedar Lake Road. This will also be explained in the course talk and there will be volunteers on the course telling the kids where to go.
Have a great race, but most importantly, be safe and HAVE FUN!
