WEATHER POLICY

In the event of inclement weather, the start time of this event may be delayed by up to 1 hour. Past this time, the even course may be shortened or altered to protect the participants.

If conditions turn unsafe, the event may be cancelled. Event changes and cancellations are at the discretion of the Race Director. 

We always strive to produce a full and safe sporting event, but sometimes the weather conditions can affect those plans. 

Considerable amount goes into planning a sporting event and we do so with the best intentions. Unfortunately, no one can control the weather and race directors are not the exceptions.

Our goal is to always produce a full event as scheduled and only modify these plans due to safety concerns some of which can be caused by weather conditions. 

Thank you for your understanding of these policies and we appreciate your participation.

New Venue Overview

We are trying something NEW!

Transition has been moved to a new grass location!

Distance from the swim exit is about the same as the old transition with the advantage of no rocks and gravel on bare feet! 

Disco Transition Map

Transition will be open at 6:00a.m. and will close at 7:15a.m. Please have your helmet available for inspection. Body marking will be available at the transition entrance.
Save time entering transition race morning by having a friend body mark you before you arrive to transition to avoid waiting in line! Using a black, thick sharpie, have a friend write your race number vertically, (sized 2 inches minimum per number) on your outer left arm and outer left calf. Be sure the skin is clean and does not have lotion or sunscreen prior to labeling.  

Swim Waves

Swim waves are determined by gender and age. You receive a swim cap that is assigned to your wave. You must wear your swim cap during the swim portion of the event. The race will begin with the first swim wave starting approximately 7:30am after the safety briefing.
