Anyone not in order will be disqualified. 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.
