No Pre Race packet pickup!
Packet Pickup will begin at 5:30am Race morning. It will close at 6:45am along with transition.
Parking will be at high school lot or pool lot adjacent to pool exit.
There's still time to register and volunteer! Just click the pic and it'll magically transform you to the registration page!
New to Triathlon? Here's a few tips:
1. Get there early. Not 4:30am early, but early enough to be relaxed and not rushed.
2. Be neat in transition and make a list and check it off, twice.
3. Don't think just because you're new, you don't deserve to compete. Go Get em tiger!
4. start in line where your swim pace is, not in the back unless you know you are that pace. Your time doesn't start till the timer tells you to go. This is a time trial start with a snake swim 4x15yard lanes and 3x30 lanes for the Sprint and 3x30 for the Super Sprint.
5. Be comfortable on the road before signing up! The course is open to traffic.
6. KNOW YOUR COURSE. This could mean driving it the day before, or studying it on the map. If you rely on volunteers to tell you where to go, you might get lost because they don't always know your division or your course.
7. Talk to people, ask questions, Triathletes LOVE to talk about TRIATHLON!
USA Triathlon also has a few good resources for you to check out at www.usatriathlon.org
We got rules y'all! And if you signed up for this race, you clicked a box and signed your name stating that you read the rules and will follow them. Here are the biggies:
1. NO DIVING
2. HELMET MUST BE ON and CLIPPED while touching the bike during the race, and on and clipped while riding the bike on the race site.
3. NO FREAKING HEADPHONES. Seriously y'all, I DQ'd someone for this already this year. Don't make me do it again.
3.5 FOLLOW ALL TRAFFIC SAFETY RULES. Cars don't always care you are winning. You might have to stop.
4. NO LITTERING. I will personally yell at you.
5. BE NICE TO MY VOLUNTEERS, MY STAFF, and OTHER ATHLETES. If you're not, you will get the mom stare and a penalty and possibly banned from PBR events. JUST BE NICE! I work hard to get volunteers and they are out there to make your life better, so make theirs better by smiling and thanking them.
