Course Information

 

TRANSITION AREA

The Transition Area for the race is located at the "little beach" parking area.  The surface is asphalt that has seen some deterioration over the years.  The race crew will blow off loose gravel, trash, pine needles, etc. the day before the race.  Transition opens race morning at 6:00am and closes promptly at 7:15am.  There is no bike check-in prior to race day.  

When you check your bike into the transition area on Sunday morning, your bike number must be on your bike. After the race, only you, the athlete, can remove your bike from the transition area. We will be matching your bike number to your ankle band number upon exiting transition after the race. Only registered athletes with an ankle band will be allowed in the transition area. Make sure your handle bars have bar-end plugs before checking into the transition area race morning.

Once bikes are checked into the transition area on Sunday morning they cannot be removed from the transition area until the last cyclist completes the bike portion of the race and is out on the run course. Bike warm ups are not allowed once your bike is checked into transition. All participants must wear a bike helmet at any time they are seated on their bike. You will get body marked on race morning outside of the transition area.  After 11:30am the race site is broken down and transition is no longer secure.  Please be courteous and remove your trash as you exit transition post-race.

 

SWIM COURSE

This year we will utilize a rolling swim start instead of mass wave starts. Swimmers will be asked to self seed themselves by anticipated swim finish time or average 100 meter pace time. Faster swimmers will be seeded in the front and slower swimmers will be seeded in the back. All swimmers MUST cross the timing mat that will be located at water’s edge to begin the race. Swimmers will enter the water one swimmer every 3 seconds. The first swimmer will go at 7:30am when the cannon is shot and the last swimmer should enter the water before 7:50am. We think this change will make a safer and more enjoyable swim for all of our participants.

USA Triathlon Wetsuits rules:

4.4 Wetsuits. Each age group participant shall be permitted to wear a wetsuit without penalty in any event sanctioned by USA Triathlon up to, and including a water temperature of 78 degrees Fahrenheit. When the water temperature is greater than 78 degrees, but less than 84 degrees Fahrenheit, age group participants may wear a wetsuit at their own discretion, provided however that participants who wear a wetsuit within this temperature range shall not be eligible for prizes or awards. Age group participants shall not wear wetsuits in water temperatures equal to or greater than 84 degrees Fahrenheit. The wetsuit policy for elite athletes shall be determined by the USAT Athletes Advisory Council. The AAC has set the wetsuit maximum temperature for elite athletes at 68 degrees for swim distances less than 3000 meters and 71.6 degrees for distances of 3000 meters or greater.

Any swimmer wearing a wetsuit with a thickness measured in any part greater than 5 millimeters shall be disqualified.
