Course Notes: The swim is in beach/pool area with lifeguards on duty (not in the lake where the adults swim on Sunday).

The bike is on nice concrete urban road with cones separating kids from cars along with police support. The course is slightly hilly, but fun!  On the run course there will be an aid station equipped with water and Powerade.

Race Categories (NEW!)

Recreational Category (RC): For athletes whose sole goal for participating is fun, fitness and a super cool finisher’s medal. Strongly recommended for first-timers and “casual” racers.

While USAT rules still apply for this group, volunteers and officials will be more likely to give guidance and suggestions to these athletes on the course before they hand out penalties. RC athletes will start their race shortly after competitive category athletes, and will be body-marked “RC” so volunteers know to give them an extra hand while they’re out on the course.

Competitive Category (CC): For experienced athletes who want a more structured racing experience with strictly enforced rules and category awards.

USAT competitive rules (including Youth rules) will be strictly enforced through penalties on the course. CC athletes will have their own area in transition, and will be assigned race numbers based on a provided swim time. These athletes will start their race shortly before the recreational category athletes.

Good sportsmanship is expected from both athletes and parents. Athletes who demonstrate poor sportsmanship will be immediately disqualified. Parents who demonstrate poor sportsmanship will have their athlete(s) immediately disqualified. Please see our “Most Violated Rules and Penalties” section for details on what qualifies as poor sportsmanship.

Competitive Category divisions will be: Girls 6-8, Boys 6-8, Girls 9-10, Boys 9-10, Girls 11-14, Boys 11-14
