1. What if I am a really slow swimmer? Will you pull me out of the race?
A. NO. No cut off times. Period.
2. If I experience issues in the swim, can I continue my race?
A. Yes. You are permitted to hold on to a kayak or boat until you recover, you can flip over on your back and rest, and you can wear a personal swim buoy if desired. The kayak CANNOT move you forward, you must complete the swim on your own. You are welcome to continue with your race as scheduled.
3. Is it ok if we bring our dog?
A. Not really. a.) The Park does not allow dogs and all of the activities will be within the Park. b.) Dogs and bikes don’t really mix. c.) Out of the park is neighboring lawns and we don’t think it’s very nice to have your dog hang out in someone else’s lawn all day. d.) Dogs and other dogs don’t always mix. e.) We love dogs, but this isn’t the venue for it. Sorry.
4. Can my friend run alongside me to pace my run and keep me company?
A. NO. No-one other than registered athletes on the course.
5. Is it ok if I walk my bike up some of those hills?
6. What if I flat on the bike course or have mechanical difficulties?
A. A mechanic will never be more than 7 miles from you at any spot. Ask a fellow athlete to report your general location to the next aid station or race volunteer. Or, if you have you phone on course, please put in the phone # now of Mark Wilson, Race Director, 914-466-9214. Mechanics can do minor repairs like tire changing and cable adjustments but not replace cracked wheels or frames. Only race organization volunteers, other athletes or staff can assist you while on course. No coaches, spouses or friends allowed to assist.
7. Will there be a place I can change clothes between the swim and the bike?
A. Yes. There will be two changing tents (Male & Female with side walls just outside transition)
8. What if I am a really slow cyclist and those hills slow me down even more? Will you pull me out of the race?
A. NO. No cut off times. Period.
9. Can I bring a sandwich and a Coke to eat half way on the bike course?
A. Yes. You can bring a Special Needs bag with whatever you think you may need. It will be at the halfway point/aid station #2 of the bike course. We will put a sticker with your bib# on it and a volunteer will be there to help you find it.
10. Will you have aid stations on the run course?
A. Yes. One at each mile. 3 with port-a-johns. They will be stocked with water, Hammer Nutrition Gels, Electrolytes, Heed (to mix in a water bottle), bananas, oranges, chips, cookies, granola bars, candy.
11. I may need to walk some of that run course. Will the aid stations and finish line still be up?
A. Yes. NO cut off time. Period.
