Description:
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!
Course Information:
Distance 
Swim 500 yards, Bike 9.0 miles, Run/Walk 3.1 miles

Course 
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.

Timing 
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.

Transition Areas 
? 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.
 
Start
? 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.
 
Swim 
? 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.

Bike 
? 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.
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 
speed.
? If you have to STOP for anything other than an emergency DO NOT press the Stop button. 
You will need to press the Speed ? until you reach 0.5 MPH. You can then step off the treadmill 
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.
Finish
? 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 youve 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.
 
Emergency 
? If you are feeling faint or ill PLEASE NOTIFY A STAFF MEMBER OR VOLUNTEER. We have trained 
professionals who can help at any time.
Water 
? 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.
