Individual Competition: Sign up to participate as an individual. We will have age groups in 5 year increments.

The Sprint Triathlon Team option is included for the 10th year. The team competition  will consist of three divisions – male, female, and coed. This is NOT a relay, each team member will do all three components of the Sprint Tri. The overall race times of the three team members will be added together to determine a final team time. The team with the lowest total time in their division will win team trophies. Racers that participate on a team are still eligible for overall and age group awards. 

The Sprint Triathlon 3 Person Relay competition will consist of three divisions – male, female, and coed. Each Relay member will complete one component of the Sprint Tri. The three times will be added together to determine a final time. The Relay with the lowest combined time in their division will win the relay competition.

The 5K is open to both runners and walkers and will start at 7:15 a.m.  Overall and age group awards will also be given out for the 5K. 

Race time for the individual, Team and 3 Person Relay will start at 6:45 a.m. Transitions open at 5:45 a.m. and close at 6:45 a.m.
