TUNE UP FOR THE 2014 SEASON!!!
The Tune Up Tri has a twist in it:
since we're racing in March and don't want icicles in our hair.....
we'll start the triathlon with the run, then do the bike,
and finally end up with a "snake swim" at the pool
(so you begin your swim whenever you arrive, not having to wait for an empty lane)
Age 10 through ADULT welcome to participate.
Run: route map 1.5 miles primarily on road and sidewalk, with a short
distance on grass
The race will begin with the run with wave starts.
A short portion of this run is off-road on grass and mulch.
Start: Edwin King Lane to a left turn onto Freedom Center Blvd., toward the driveway entrance to the back of the Freedom Center
Bike: route map 4 miles on low traffic roads, basically flat
Start: Freedom Center parking lot
Swim: snake style swim in a 25 yard pool
The race finishes in the indoor pool.
Swimmers will begin the swim whenever they reach the pool after completing the bike portion of the tri . There will be 8 lanes set up in the 25 yard pool, a total of 200 yards. You will sit and slide into the pool and use the ladder to exit the pool. 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)
transition area: 4 bikes to a rack, unassigned (first come first serve)
