Here’s a rundown of important things to know before and after you register. In no particular order.
This year’s race date is June 11, 2023. The first tri heat and duathlon starts at 7:30 AM
Helmets are required for the bike portion of the event. You can use a helmet for other portions as well, but you’ll look funny.
We won’t be announcing your heat. You’ll have to pay attention to the running clock and be ready to go when it’s your time.
Be as accurate as possible when submitting your swim time prediction. We normally leave about 2 min between heats, so if you happen to be a little slower on race day, you should have enough cushion. We’ll only be using the outdoor pool.
Here’s a link to help find the YMCA.
It could be a warm race, especially for the later heats. Make sure you’re sufficiently trained and acclimated to warm, humid summer conditions. The only water available will be on the 5K run.
The event is chip timed with a disposable chip. No need to return it at the finish, but you do need to wear it through each stage in order to be counted and timed. Team participants will all have chips programmed for your team. No need to trade off.
