When exiting with bike, etc., walk back through area you entered. Do not cross fences or lift bikes/ etc., over fences.

Post-Race: Enter again at the east end of the field and be cautious when exiting the field and going back on to Lonetree Dr.
DO NOT CRAWL, JUMP, WALK OVER OR UNDER FENCES.

Event venue is to the south of parking, packet pickup will be just inside the fenced-in area. The grass is minimal at this venue, so if you bring family or friends, a chair or blanket to sit on is a good idea.

Race Day Preparation

Your packet will include:

  1. Timing chip: Affix this to your left ankle. Under your wetsuit leg is fine but check when you remove your wetsuit that your chip is still attached.
  2. Bike number: Adhesive number to be attached to your bike crossbar or seat post.
  3. Helmet number: Smaller adhesive number that is attached to the front of your helmet.
  4. Bib number: BIB only needs to be worn during the RUN portion of your race. If you don’t use a race belt, you will be provided pins to pin to the front of your shirt. BIB MUST FACE FORWARD AS YOU RUN.

Bike racking is first-come first-rack. Body markings are optional and you may mark yourself or one another – a great way to get to know your fellow racers. Relays will have a designated area within transition.

Swim Star: Six waves 4 minutes apart. Standup paddle board will be the first wave. SUP’ers bring yourself and your board to swim start by 7:20, we will start you at the end of the boat ramp in open water. Once you have exited the lake at SWIM EXIT, please move your board to one side of the ramp or the other out of the pathway to transition. If you have a friend or family member that can retrieve that board, great plan.

Relays:  Swimmer swims, exits the water, goes to the rack where the cyclist is waiting, and passes off your chip to the cyclist. Upon returning to T2, the runner is waiting for the cyclist at the same rack. Pass off your chip to the runner. High five~finish race.

Aquabike: After the bike portion is complete, exit transition at RUN START and follow cones on run path start, as you reach the end of the parking lot, do not go left, go right to the FINISH line.
