You can purchase a one day membership for $15 at packet pick up or an annual membership for $50. You must bring a photo ID with you. One day memberships can only be paid by cash or credit card.
How are USAT age groups formatted?
USAT age is the age that you are on 12/31 of the race year, it does not go by your actual Date of Birth, but rather your year of birth.
What are the key race day Rules?
Bike storage will NOT be provided the night before the event.
Glass containers are NOT allowed in the transition area.
Only triathletes and transition workers are allowed in the transition area. Please advise your family and friends that they will need to remain outside of the transition area.
You MUST rack your bike on race morning on the rack that corresponds to your assigned bib number.
Participants will NOT be allowed to mount their bikes in the transition area and will be required to dismount at the designated spot outside the transition area.
All participants must wear a helmet during the bike portion of the event, you will not be allowed to leave transition area until your helmet is buckled.
Triathletes must show their race number to remove their bicycle and gear from the transition area after the race.
How many people can be on a relay team?
Relay teams can be made up of two or three people. You can have an all male team, all female or mixed relay team.
How are participants timed?
We will be using ChampionChip Electronic Timing System for this event. Please be aware of the following procedures to ensure successful timing of your event: All participants will receive their timing chip on race morning at the Chip Pick-Up Area. You are REQUIRED to show your paper Bib number in order to receive your timing chip which you must wear on your ankle for the duration of the event. It is REQUIRED that all participants wear the timing chip on their ankle.
How to wear the timing chip with the provided disposable strap:
Place the strap around your ankle.
Insert TWO (2) fingers between the medical strap and your ankle (to prevent the strap from being too tight).
Fasten the medical strap SECURELY.
Relay teams must return the timing chip at the finish line in order to receive your results. If you are not able to finish any leg of the race, you must turn in your timing chip as soon as possible at the finish line. If we do not receive your timing chip you will be charged to replace it(this only applies to relay teams). All individual triathlete timing chips are disposable and may be thrown out at the end of the race.
The race number you receive at packet pickup will be what you must wear during the race. The smallest number is the helmet number, the middle sized number is you run number, and the piece with your number on it twice is your number for your bike. While you have this number in print form you will also be receiving body marking on your calf, arm and hand.
You will need to peel the sticker off of its protective paper and place it on the front of your helmet. Placing the number on the side of the helmet will make it harder for the USAT Officials, photographers, volunteers and race staff to identify you quickly so please be sure that you place the sticker on the front.
The bike number is the largest piece of paper. You will notice the the number is upside down at one end and right side up at the other. The reason for this print orientation is so that when the number is folded over the top tube of your bike your race number can be read easily from either side. There are two adhesive strips on the backside of the bike number. You will peel the protective paper off of the adhesive strips and then place the number on the top tube of your bike.
The run number is the middle sized paper in you race number grouping. You will need to wear this number on the run course. This number MUST be on the front of you as you cross the finish line. You may use safety pins (provided at packet pick-up or chip pick-up) or a race belt to display the number on your front.
On race morning after you have affixed your assigned race number to your helmet, bike, and shirt/race belt you will then need to get your body marking done. The body marking station is located near the entrance to the Transition Area at the race site. Plan to bring your run number with you as you will need it to insure that the person body marking you is writing the correct number. The body marking will have your assigned race number on your upper left arm as well as on your right calf. You will also be marked on the back of you right calf with your age if you are racing in the Age Group division or with your race division if you are racing as a Relay. You will also be marked on your hand.
Triathletes may enter the transition area at 5:15am. Bike racks are numbered and triathletes must put their bicycles and gear in their designated bicycle location. All athletes must be out of transition area by 6:35am and ready for the pre- race briefing. You will not be allowed back into transition area after you complete the race until 8:30am when all of the runners are out on the run course.
Swim – When triathletes finish the swim portion of the race, they will enter the transition area and proceed to their designated bicycle rack (relay teams make their exchange at their designated rack number).
Bike – Bikes may NOT be ridden in the transition area. It is important to use extreme caution when departing the transition area, as it may be congested! All athletes must put on their helmet and snap the strap before mounting their bike. The helmet must stay on and buckled until they dismount and rack their bike. Not following the helmet rules may result in a disqualification (DQ). Bike times will start when triathletes depart the transition area through the ‘Bike Out’ chute and end when they re-enter the transition area through the ‘Bike In’ chute in the transition area. Once the bike portion is completed, triathletes will return their bike to their designated spot in the transition area.
