(formerly known as Capitol View Triathlon) at Governor Nelson State Park is a sprint and olympic triathlon and duathlon for individuals, couples, and relays. Individuals and couples compete all three disciplines (swim, bike, run) individually, and relay teams of 2 or more people compete the three disciplines amongst the relay team members. The couples component is done through scoring.
Two people sign up as a couple. They dont need to be an actual couple there are 10 different divisions to chose how your pair can be classified (ex: siblings, coworkers, etc)
The couple selects one of the 10 divisions upon registration
Each person of the couple completes the ENTIRE event as an individual. The wave starts will be based one the event divisions, and will include an elite wave and age group individual waves.
After the event is completed, the awards will be determined based upon the couples combined time in their division, each racers individual age group, and overall male/female. For example: a 25 year old female could win her age group, her couples division with the combined time with her partner, and also win overall female.
One person can sign up as an individual.
Individual racers will be awarded for their age groups and overall.
Individual racers will start the race in assigned age group waves or the elite wave.
Team relays (2 or 3 people) register as a team relay NOT AS A COUPLE. (Couples teams compete all 3 disciplines; meaning both people swim, bike, and run).
Relay teams can have 1 person swim, another person bike, and another person run. Or, if a two person relay, then 1 person can swim & bike and the other person run, or 1 person can swim, and the other person bike & run.
Team relays can also register into 1 of 3 divisions: Jacks (all male team), Jills (all female team), and Mixed (female/male mixed team).
