POOL SWIM

pool

The swim is in a 25-metre swimming pool and will start 10 min after a pre-race briefing at 8:45am. There are 6 lanes in the pool and a maximum of 4 swimmers in each lane (wave).

We will start with the Sprint distance (500m) first in the pool (while the duathlon gals are running) and once all Sprint distance has completed with their 10 laps/20 lengths, we will begin the 250m Try-A-Tri distance swim (5 laps/10 lengths). Relay swimmers will go in one heat after the 20+ swimmers (heats A & B)

Swimmers are to swim in a counter-clockwise circle only. Passing in the lane is permitted but please pass with caution. We will be utilizing a continuous feed swim – that is, when one lane of 3 or 4  swimmers exits the water, another group of 3 or 4 swimmers of similar swim ability will slip in (NO DIVING!) to begin their swim. We will line up all participants according to your heat letter. Ensure your know your estimated 500m swim time (or test out your swim again very soon with your new time) to aid us in seeding racers for an effective swim. Swimmers with estimated swim times over 20 min will start in the earlier waves.

The RELAY swimmers for the sprint distance with 500m swim will start with the first sprint racers. Volunteers will count your laps. At 450m (or 200m for the Try-A-Tri), the lap counter will place a flutterboard in the water to notify you that you have 50m to go.  Exit the pool with caution and no running on deck!

All Sprint Relay participants will start AFTER Heats A & B swimmers are done (4 team’s swimmers with similar swim times per lane). Relay Swimmers will exit the pool after their 500m swim, cross the timing mat (to end swim time) and proceed to the relay exchange (swim to bike) at the bike racks. Once the relay cyclist receives the ankle timing chip, they may remove their bike from the bike rack and walk bike (no bike riding) to the mount area. Cyclists must stay at their bike for the relay exchange but not remove their bike until they have the timing chip ankle strap secure on their left ankle.

BIKE

The bike will be one loop on the shoulder of Highway 817 for BOTH DISTANCES. The roadway will be open to vehicle traffic so please ride with caution and obey marshals and police. ANSI approved helmets are mandatory for the race and they must be bike helmets (ski or hockey helmets are not allowed). Bike and helmet inspection  long before the race is highly recommended to ensure your bike and helmet are safe. It is important for your safety, and the safety of other competitors that your bike is roadworthy.
