_ The 2018 AIM High in Bryant Presented by Academy Sports + Outdoors:
A fantastic, local event for beginners and veterans alike. This USAT sanctioned event is THE event to begin your triathlon career, yet at the same time it's the perfect race for veterans to kick off the season. If your goal is to qualify and race at the USAT Age Group Nationals at the end of the summer, this event can help you get there.
If you're a new triathlete, this 400 yard indoor pool swim will help ease you into the sport and give you a taste of what it's all about. You'll be hooked! If you race for the first time last year it's a great way to see how far you've come. And, if you're a veteran of the sport it's a great way to shake off the rust and fine tune your race day!
The bike course has some great rollers and the back half of the run is slightly downhill allowing for a great finishing kick.
This is a USAT sanctioned event. Each racer must be an annual member OR purchase a 1-day license. Each participant must pick up his/her own packet. NO ONE may pick up a packet for anyone else. No exceptions.
NO REFUNDS are provided for this event.
WEATHER: The event will proceed as scheduled, even in the event of rain. If lightning is present we will delay the start until it is safe to begin. There are no refunds provided in the event a cancellation is necessary due to the weather.
