This section contains information that is important to young athletes and to their parents/guardians. Reading and following these instructions will help assure that Saturday will be a safe and enjoyable day for kids and adults alike. This packet includes topics regarding the race course, specific course instructions, procedures, and policies.
Parking will be available along the county baseball park (on the Castalia Street side only) and in the dirt lot across the street. There will be signs and parking attendants to help you from 6:00 to 7:00 a.m. PARKING IS NOT ALLOWED ANYWHERE ALONG THE RACE COURSE. Plan for about a ten minute walk from parking to the event check-in. Don’t forget: triathlon gear, strollers, backpacks, wallets, keys, and cameras.
Your parking pass is obtained by giving $2 or more to the charity parking booth. You can also do this the night before at packet pick up.
Check-in will be held on the Saturday morning of the event, beginning at 6:30 a.m. You may pick up your Race Packet on Wednesday and Thursday at packet pick up at the LVC bike shop. You are required to check in before you set up your transition. You will not be allowed into transition without your check-in materials. Please double check your information such as race division, distance, name, number, and age with the check-in hosts.
- Arrival Time: Check-in opens at 6:30 a.m. Check-in will take longer to get through the later it gets. We suggest checking in early enough to allow time to set up your transition and get to the required athlete meeting at 7:30 a.m. You must be race-ready at the athlete meeting, because you will stay in the pool area from then until your start. The Check-in table will be in front of transition. To check in, you must be already registered to race. There is no Registration on race day.
- Release Form: You will be asked to sign a release form at check-in, so if you are under 18, you must also bring your legal parent/guardian along to sign it as well.
- Parent Assist Category: If you would like to race in the Parent-Assist category, you must tell the check-in host to add you to the parent-assist list, even if you’ve notified someone prior to check-in.
- Placing Race Numbers, bibs, bands, etc.: You will be given a few items at check-in or packet pick up the night before. Place them according to instructions so they are easiest to see by course officials and lap counters.
- Bib: The bib is to be pinned on the front of the t-shirt or running shorts or race belt before the race (safety pins are available at check-in). Do not pin the bib to your swimsuit or swim with it. Only put it on after the swim and keep it on for the rest of the race.
