1. Time Trial Pool Start:
Athletes will still be seeded into waves with the first being adults 16+, second will be ages 11-15, and last will be ages 7-10. The first wave will begin at 7:30am and athletes will line up in numerical order starting lowest number to highest in each respective wave. Plenty of staff and volunteers will be on hand to assist with lining up the athletes in preparation for their start. A timing mat will be near the pool side at the start location. Athletes will be started one at a time. As they cross the timing mat, their time will begin. Each athlete will be individually timed using a timing chip picked up at registration. The time interval between each athlete will vary based upon the swimming ability of the athlete starting in the position just in front of them. If a slower swimmer is in the water, the start of the next athlete will be delayed a few seconds to allow for appropriate spacing. If the swimmer just in front is an accomplished swimmer, the time interval will be less. Each swimmer will start approximately 5-10 seconds apart. It should take between 20-25 minutes to start all athletes in wave 1. When all athletes from wave 1 have exited the water, we will wait an additional 5-10 minutes to start wave 2 and we will then follow the same procedure for wave 2, and then wave 3. The approximate start time of wave 2 will be 8:10am and wave 3, 8:50am.
2. Bike Check-in:
ALL athletes will be required to check their bike into transition by 7:20am race morning at the North Shore Pool parking lot. In years past, we have had problems with athletes checking in bikes and interfering with athletes that started in an earlier wave. This will help to eliminate congestion in transition and will allow for all participants to have a safe race without outside interference. Bikes cannot be removed until the last cyclist from wave 3 has exited transition. This should be shortly after 10am.
Event specific details will be sent out to all participants in early April.
More information will be posted in the coming months so stay tuned.
I hope you have a great winter of training.
See you in April!
