Frequently Asked Questions
Is the race open to beginners? Yes!
Can I ride a mountain bike? You may ride a mountain bike, single speed bike, or a tri-bike. Due to insurance purposes, we cannot allow recumbent bicycles.
Can I do it with a friend? Yes, we have a team category for the event. One person may run while the other rides the bike.
Are you affiliated with USA Triathlon? No, we are not.
Can my child participate? The minimum age to participate in the course solo is 18. Kids 14 years and older may do the run segment of the team relay with an adult doing the bike segment. If a youth age 14 years old but under 18 wishes to do the race solo, please contact the race director for consideration.
What should I wear? Wear comfortable clothing you can run and bike in, such as a T-shirt and shorts. Tri-shorts are strongly recommended. Any shirt will do, but a tight fitting shirt will create less drag while on the bike.
What is the severe weather policy? We will make every effort to race, but safety is our #1 concern. If the forecasted weather is questionable, we will post updates to this event page about the race status, or you may call us at 547-2800 for information. Lightning and torrential flooding are the most likely causes for cancelling the race.
