Race Description

Racing Requirements: All Swimmers must wear the provided racing caps. If you do not wear the provided racing cap then you will not be allowed to race. Swimming Fins and snorkels will also not be allowed during the swimming portion of the race. Bike drafting will not be allowed during the biking portion of the race and all participants will be required to wear a helmet. No electric bikes allowed in the race.

Timing Chip and Body Marking guidelines: Each individual participant (adult race only) will be given a timing chip at packet pick up. In addition to bib identification, individuals will also have their bib number marked on the arm to help identify them throughout the race.

Swim Caps: There will be a race day swim cap provided for each participant in their welcome packet. It is required that all swimmers use this swim cap during the swimming portion. No Cap = No Swim

Swim: 300-yard indoor pool swim. The swimming portion of the race will begin with a time trial start in waves 15 seconds apart. Time trial starts will be based on estimated finishing times, if you would like to complete a time trial you may visit the aquatic center the week of August 5, 2018 to complete such free of charge. Each swimmer will enter the pool feet first and do a push start. Each swimmer will complete a 50-yard swim in each lane using a circle swimming pattern. After completing their 50 yards the swimmer leading will move under the lane line to the next lane followed by the remaining swimmers to continue their laps. See the map on the next page. In the case of needing to pass a swimmer, the passing swimmer will tap the swimmer ahead of them after which this swimmer will stop at the wall and allow the passing swimmer to continue ahead of them. During the Kids and Tiny Tikes race if a child needs a lifejacket to participate they will be allowed to wear one.


Bike: The 12-mile bike will begin in the transition area after the swim portion of the race. The bikers will depart from the transition are and travel to Bobcat Drive, east to Mineral Drive, up the top of Mineral drive and back down to the intersection of Route 50 and Mineral Drive. The route will follow Route 50 to Madison Avenue, this section of the race is on a state highway and will travel with traffic. Spotters will be provided to help control this section of the race to ensure safety to our riders. Bikers will continue on Madison Ave to California Ave to Grant Ave to Pennsylvania Ave to 13th Street. At 13th Street and Avenue M bikers will travel on Avenue M to 16th Street to Ave. G and then back to 13th Street. Bikers will follow essentially the same route to return to the transition area adjacent to the Aquatic Center to begin their run. There will be a first aid/water station at the turn around on Mineral drive as well as Avenue M and 13th Street.
