NEW WEEKEND FOR 2012Sunday, May 20, 2012
200 meter pool swim / 8.5 mi bike / 2 mi run
Gordon Jewish Community Center, Nashville, TN
WELCOME TO THE GJCC MEMORIAL WEEKEND TRIATHLON!Have you ever thought, "I wouldn't mind giving a triathlon a try." This is the perfect chance to just say you did one, or to start a new sport!
The Swim: The swim is in a 50 meter outdoor pool. You will enter the pool in an "interval start" fashion. Participants line up by race number (beginning with the lowest number to the highest.) Your race number is assigned based on the estimated swim time you provided when you registered. You can choose to line up at the end if you prefer. One person at a time enters the pool and begins swimming when given the start command. Swim down the first lane, touch the wall, go under the lane rope, swim down that lane, and continue the same process until you exit after swimming four lengths for a total of 200 meters. While you are entering the pool by estimated swim time, someone may need to pass you. We encourage participants to pass at the wall. If someone taps your foot, please stop at the wall and let them go under the lane rope before you. When you exit the pool, volunteers will direct you to the transition area where you will begin your bike segment of the race.
The Bike: The bike course is a loop course on Hwy. 70, Hwy. 100, and Old Hickory Boulevard, with only one real climb about 0.2 mile long. Race officials and police will monitor intersections and provide direction for bikers.
The Run: The run course will be 2 miles total - one mile out and one mile back on residential roads surrounding the GJCC.
