8:55 AM: Final race instructions given to all participants
9:15 AM: Swim Start – 5‐7 age group will enter the pool and go every 10 seconds. Athletes will start at the east end of the pool, in lane 1 and swim a single length of 50 meters.
- A ladder will be placed at the 25 meter mark if athletes would rather swim the shorter distance. Kickboards will also be allowed if needed.
- Upon completion, participants will exit the Northwest corner of the pool, jog back to the Northwest corner of the Soda Aquatics Center, exiting the gate and entering the transition area.
- Inside the transition area, athletes will grab gear and bike and head for the exit. NOTE: YOU MAY NOT RIDE YOUR BIKE INSIDE THE TRANSITION AREA AND HELMETS MUST BE STRAPPED ON BEFORE EXITING.
- The bike course takes you through the Campolindo High School hallways and quad area and returns you to the transition area. Remember, you must dismount before entering the transition area.
- Return your bike to the transition area before heading out for the run. Ages 5‐7 will run from the transition area up to the football stadium for 3/4 of a lap before reaching the finish line.
- Each youth participant will receive a medal as they cross the finish line. Since this is a recreational triathlon, no awards for placement will be given.
