“Important information, route changed due to construction”

Each participant must complete three laps around the bike course. Stay right in the “thru lane” at the completion of the first and second laps. At the completion of the third lap, take the “finish lane” on the left to re-enter the transition area. Watch for traffic and obey all instructions from traffic control officers and race volunteers. Cyclists must dismount prior to reentering the transition area.

TIMING

We utilizes a chip timing system. Participants will receive timing chips in their race packet the morning of the race. Each race participant will cross a sensory pad immediately prior to the swim portion of the race. A second sensory pad is placed between the pool and transition area. The third split is taken after the bike course is completed, immediately prior to the run course. The final sensory pad is crossed at the finish line.
