Transition Area: The transition area will be set up in the front parking lot of the Island Recreation Center. Bike racks will be placed in 3 zones – grouped by age divisions. Participants will rack their bike on the bike rack(s) in their zone and set up their transition area next to their bike with their race equipment (helmet, running shoes, …).
Swim: The swim will start at 8am. The age group 4-6 yrs will go first and complete the swim – then, head over to the bike and run. ALL participants 4-6yrs will complete the race course before the next 2 age groups start the swim. Swimmers will use the same lane to swim their respective distance. The swim will be monitored by life guards and there will be skilled volunteers in the water (along the swim lane) assisting the swimmers if needed.
Transition 1: Participants enter the transition area and go straight to their bike. All participants must wear a helmet – NO EXCEPTIONS. Participants must run their bikes out of transition and mount their bike in the safe zone.
Bike: Participants will bike their respective distance. All passing must be on the left side of the overtaken rider.
Transition 2: Participants will dis-mount their bike in the safe zone and run their bike back to their spot in the transition.
Run: Participants will run their respective distance – and, finish at the finish line in front of the Island Rec Center.

The safety of our participants, volunteers, and staff is our paramount concern - and, this concern shapes our decisions regarding inclement weather. Any decisions regarding the weather will be made the morning the event. We plan on producing a great event and we will be at the race site ready to do so. Should the weather pose any threat to safety - we will postpone the start of the event until the weather clears. If the weather does not cooperate after a reasonable amount of time, we will make the decision to cancel the event. Any decision regarding rescheduling the event or entry credit to another event will be made as quickly as possible and be communicated via email to all participants.
We do not mail race shirts to registered participants that are unable to attend the event.
