Join our super friendly Indoor Sprint Triathlon! We have competitive triathlon gurus AND beginners in one race, but because of the way we organize our Indoor Sprint Triathlon, you will feel welcome, supported and challenged!
Swim – 500 yards, Bike – 9.0 miles, Run/Walk – 3.1 miles
The race will start in our 25 yard indoor pool where you will swim 500 yards and then proceed
into the Wellness Room where your transition will be set up. From the Transition area proceed to
the indoor cycling bikes which are located in the same room. From indoor cycling bikes head to
the fitness center and locate an open treadmill. The finish line will be on the treadmill.
We will use a running clock to determine your start and end time. Personal timing devices are
allowed but staff and volunteers will have the official race time. Splits will be calculated and will
count in your total race time. Your pool time will be taken when you begin the swim and when you
end the swim. The bike time will begin once you are set-up and riding the bike and will end when
you finish the 9 miles. The Treadmill time will begin once you are on the treadmill and will end at
the finish of the 3miles. Total time for the entire event will count as your official race time.
? If you need to change clothes – you will enter the locker rooms from the pool deck. You may put
your change of clothes in the locker room at any time before your heat.
? If you do not need to change clothes – enter the Wellness Room. Clothes that are worn over your
wet clothes may be put in the transition area at any time before your heat.
? Towels – we will provide towels for you on the pool deck.
? In Route – For your safety and the safety of others, please do not run to the next leg of the race.
Move at a quick, but controlled pace. We want to prevent slips and keep everyone safe.
? Please be on time to your heat, the heats following yours may be full, so you may not be able to
get into a later heat time. Space is limited, due to equipment limitations.
? Indoor Pool is 25 yards
? 2 Lengths = 1 Lap (50 Yards)
? Participants will be completing 10 laps
? Any type of stroke may be used in the pool.? Volunteers will have the official lap count .
? You can stop during the swim at any point but you must be able to finish within 25 minutes or
you will be asked to move onto the bike and your total swim time will be calculated at 30 minutes.
? Participants will be riding on a Star Trac Spinning Bike.
? Bike is equipped with an odometer that will measure the distance.
? Find an open bike and be sure to let a volunteer know you are starting, they will need to log your
start time so we can get your correct transition time.
? A volunteer will help with bike set-up if you are unfamiliar with the spinning bikes.
? Spinning shoes with SPD clips or running shoes may be used on the bike.
? Bouncing in the bike saddle is not permitted.
? Please alert a volunteer by raising your arm once you have traveled a distance of 8.5 miles so they
know you will be finishing. A volunteer will write down your completion time so splits may be
calculated. You then proceed to the fitness center for the last leg of the race-the run.
? Find an open treadmill and be sure to let a volunteer know you are starting; they will need to log
your start time so we can get your correct transition time.
? You will need to press the “QuickStart” button on the touchscreen when you first get on to
activate the belt. It will take 3 seconds for the belt on the treadmill to start once you press the
“QuickStart” button. You can then press the “Up Arrow” button or the “Down ?” to adjust the

and take care of your need. Pressing stop will reset the treadmill and we will not be able to credit
you any distance or time. Press “Resume” when you are ready to continue.
? Stepping off the treadmill. If you step off the treadmill to tie your shoe or other need, after
approx. 30 seconds the treadmill will stop and reset because a weight sensor tells the computer
that the user has left. So please do not stop for any length of time, or if you stop make sure to
get back on every few seconds to prevent the treadmill from re-setting.
? Please alert a volunteer by raising your hand once you have completed 2.8 miles. The volunteer
will record your finish time off the running clock when you’ve reached 3.1 miles.
? Race Results are based on your total time including the time to transition to each leg of the race.
You will get race split times so you know how long it took to complete each portion of the race.
? If you are feeling faint or ill PLEASE NOTIFY A STAFF MEMBER OR VOLUNTEER. We have trained
professionals who can help at any time.
? We will have bottled water available at the registration area, during the competition or after the
race. Water is also available at drinking fountains throughout the facility.
