Course Details and Map

COVID Course Details and Map This course offers a sprint triathlon distance as well as a novice distance. Our triathlon is in TRUE triathlon order: swim, bike, run. The transition area will open at 5:30 am and will be CLOSED at 7:15 a.m. ALL BIKES AND EQUIPMENT NEED TO BE IN THE TRANSITION AREA BEFORE IT CLOSES. Once transition closes, you will be unable to set up for the race.   Once you are out of the transition area, you cannot go back in. We will be turning our transition timing points on and don’t want the timing system to accidentally catch your chip for timing. All racers, both Sprint & Novice, will be in the same transition area. It is a first come, first serve transition area. We plan on 5-6 bikes per bike rack due to social distancing requirements. For better balance and best spacing, place your bike in the opposite direction as the bike next to yours. “TRANSITION IN” and one labeled, “TRANSITION OUT”. Anytime you are going INTO the transition area from an event, you’ll go in the IN archway, anytime you go out to the next event, you’ll head towards the OUT archway. Please pay attention and be aware of the direction you are headed. Transition Map Updated 9/1/2019 {PDF DOWNLOAD – TRANSITION MAP}

COVID SWIM

Sprint Distance The swim portion of the sprint distance will be held in the lap pool (competition pool). The race will start at 7:30 am. When lining up at the pool, find the time card that best fits with your estimated swim time and adjust according to those around you. We will space 6 feet apart so as to comply with social distancing requirements and will likely stretch out the door onto the outdoor pool deck. We will serpentine swim the length of the pool. Your time will not start until you enter the water and will end when you cross into the transition area. The sprint distance swim will be 350 yards. Please be realistic in your swim capabilities and position yourself accordingly so as to allow for movement amongst racers to flow as smoothly as possible. Upon completion of the swim, exit the double doors to your right and make your way to the Transition area for the Bike. 

Novice Distance The novice racers will start AFTER all the sprint racers have started. We ask you to head down to the pool area at 7:45 a.m. and wait in the stands until the novice portion starts. The novice race will start about 8:45am. Remember, once you are out of the transition area, you cannot go back in. We will be turning on our transition timing points so we are ready for the first racer to come out. If you re-enter the transition area, it could cause problems with your race time. Line up along the deck, under the approximate time card that you anticipate finishing and communicate with those around you so that you are comfortable with where you are in line. Your time will not start until you enter the water and will end when you cross into the transition area. In the Novice distance, you will swim 150 yards – 6 lengths in the pool. You will swim one length, then under a lane line and back, then under a lane line again and so on. The last lane will have an orange cone in front of it, when you get to it, on the east-side, you can hop out of the pool anywhere or use the stairs. Head out the doors and to the transition area where you placed your bike and equipment.. {PDF DOWNLOAD – POOL MAP}

Sprint Distance Please be aware that you are required to wear a helmet on this part of the Race course. You will be unable to participate if you do not have one. While in the Transition area, you will be required to walk/run your bike to the BIKE MOUNT line which will be found just outside of the Transition area exit Sign. There will be volunteers at transition and out on the race course to help you with directions. You are still responsible to review the course so that you have a general idea of the course. Please review the new map.  Upon returning, please get off your bike where you are asked to Dismount. The dismount line will be right outside the Enter Transition Sign. Keep in mind that we do not close ANY part of the course. It is open to traffic and we EXPECT all participants to follow traffic laws. This includes stopping at stop lights, stopping for trains, and SLOWING down and stopping if necessary for stop signs. We offer maps for download and hope you take the time to study them and be familiar with where you are going. {PDF DOWNLOAD – SPRINT BIKE MAP}
