Event details and schedule
Entry Fee & Registration
Early Bird (through 3/31):
Super Sprint Relay...$25

**Groups of 5 or more will receive $4 off their entry fees.
The swim will be done in the Aquatics Center Pool; The bike leg will be done on the roads around the aquatics center for the adults, and mostly on property for the kids. The run will be done on the park grounds using all paved surfaces.
Participants will start their race by snaking through the Francis Meadows pool. Each athlete will do an out & back in each lane and move through the pool, exiting on the opposite end that they start from.
Athletes will be placed for the swim start based on their estimated swim time. This will allow the faster swimmers to go first, and keep them from catching the slower swimmers.
Please do your best to have an accurate time. You'll need to have your best guess at how long it will take you to complete your entire swim.
