Swim Course Info
Both courses will be managed by local water safety groups with ample rescue support and assistance. Should the water not be safe for any reason, race management will change the race from a triathlon to a duathlon with the swim being replaced by a run.

The swim will be conducted in a time-trial fashion. Race numbers are assigned by estimated swim time for all categories. A racer will enter the water approximately every 3 seconds.

Register by the Wednesday night before the race to get a spot in the swim order. Late registrants will have the upper numbers and start at the rear.

USAT Competitive Rules will be properly enforced. The Competitive Rules are intended to provide for the orderly and consistent administration of events sanctioned by USA Triathlon and are not designed to establish standards of care for the safety of participants or other persons.

Every participant, official, volunteer, and spectator should consider all safety issues and make related decisions prudently without reliance upon the Competitive Rules.

Wetsuits may be worn and considered legal by USA Triathlon up to and including a water temperature of 78°F. When the water temperature is greater than 78°F, but less than 84°F, age group participants may wear a wetsuit at their own discretion, provided however that participants who wear a wet suit within this temperature range shall not be eligible for prizes or awards.

Age group participants shall not wear wet suits in water temperatures equal to or greater than 84°F.

We use timing chips on disposable self-adhesive ankle bands, body marking or temporary race number tattoos, helmet numbers, bike frame numbers, wrist bands, and bib numbers to ensure we keep track of you during the race and provide you accurate results.

Wear the ankle band on your left ankle and attach your bike frame number to your bike before checking into the bike transition area.

· Photo ID Required.

· All racers, including relay team members, must pick up their own race packet.

· All racers will receive an envelope with a helmet number, bike frame number, bib number, and wrist band to be detached from the bib number and worn at all times.

· All racers will receive an electronic timing chip on a disposable self-adhesive ankle band.

· Be sure you still have your body marking or race bib number and the provided wrist band to retrieve your equipment from the race transition area.

· This area is controlled for your safety so we can insure only racers enter the area and take only their equipment.

· Racers will be allowed to retrieve their bikes after the last biker returns from the bike course or as soon as race staff feels like they can safely escort racers to their bike rack location without interfering with another participants race.

· There is an exit gate marked in transition - please look for this gate to retrieve your belongings - this gate is not typically the bike in / out or run out area, but a neutral location that allows those that finish early to remove items while others are still racing.
