Race Day Information

Parking:
Parking will be available in the Driving Range. Volunteers will direct you on race morning. You will be allowed to leave after the last cyclist has cleared the bike course.


Body Marking:
Body marking will be located just outside the transition area. You must have your race number to be marked.


Timing
This race will be timed using the ChampionChip timing method. All participants will be issued a ChampionChip timing chip on race morning. They can be worn with a neoprene Velcro strap if you own one or they can be worn with a medical ankle bracelet that will be provided for free at chip pickup. The chips are to be worn on the LEFT ANKLE. The ideal fit with the bracelet allows for one finger to fit between the bracelet and your leg. Lost chips result in a $30 fee so be sure to snap the medical bracelet closed. At the finishing chute we will cut the bracelet off of your leg and remove the chip.


NOTE: You must have your run bib number in order to pick up your timing chip. If you pickup your packet on Friday, make sure you bring your run number with you on race morning in order to be issued your chip. All timing chips must be picked up by 7:45

Race Numbers
You will be issued two numbers at Packet pick-up:
1) The square number is your run number and must be displayed on the FRONT of your Body during the run segment of the race. Safety pins will be available at packet pick-up if you don’t have a race number belt.
2) The medium sized number (actually containing your number twice) will be affixed to the top tube of your bike using the adhesive on the back of the number.


Relay Teams
♦ Swimmers will tag bikers at their designated bike rack location in the transition area and transfer the timing chip.
♦ Bikers must tag runners at the same location – your designated bike rack location in the transition area and transfer the timing chip.

Results & Awards
Results will be posted near the finish line. We expect awards to occur close to 11:15 AM. If you leave early, please arrange to have someone pick up your award. Awards will not be mailed out.
