The  Details

Here's a rundown of some important things to know before and after you register. In no particular order.

  • This year's race date is August 1, 2021. Typically, the first tri heat and duathlon starts at 7:30 AM

  • We're playing COVID-19 requirements by ear. Hopefully we can run a "normal" event. Stay tuned.

  • 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. Don't submit a really slow time hoping to get a heat in the indoor pool. Doing this often results in an empty pool while we wait for the next heat. That just wastes everyone's time and it's kind of selfish. Max prediction is 20 minutes.

  • So where exactly is this race held? Here's a link to help find us. 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. 

 

  • Event is chip timed with 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.
