Description

Welcome to the 2017 HUB Coaching Greenville Triathlon!

Greenville Tri Finish Line

The HUB Coaching Greenville Triathlon has become one of South Carolina's largest events. With its beginner friendly atmosphere and elite level field, the HUB Coaching Greenville Triathlon offers something for all ranges of athlete. It is very rare to see an event with so many first timers racing along side some of the state's best.

The event begins with a 400 meter pool swim in the 50 meter Westside Aquatic Center facility. Athletes will begin one at a time, going off every 5 seconds and swim one way in each lane. At each wall athletes will go under the lane rope and into the next lane until a total of 8 lengths have been completed.

The bike course is a one loop 15 mile course. The first and last sections of the course are on failry busy 4 lane highways. However, the curbside lane is closed from traffic on all these sections of highway. The middle portion of the course is on quiet country roads. Terrain is moderate to hilly with no major grades, just long rolling climbs and descents. Turns are marked with pavement arrows and directional signs. Police and volunteers control all intersections on the course.

The run course is a two loop 3 mile course. Athletes will begin the first 1.5 mile loop in front of the aquatic center before returning back to the aquatic center to begin lap number two. After the second lap a right turn to the finish will end the day. The course is mostly pavement with a 1/4 mile stretch of each loop being run on hard packed dirt roads. Turns are marked with pavement arrows and directional signs.

Event Site Rules

Event Capacity
This event is limited to the first 400 registrations.

USAT Sanctioned
This event is a USA Triathlon sanctioned event.

Cut-Off Time
All participants must complete the event in under 2 hours, 30 minutes from the start of the final athlete. Event officials reserve the right to pull a participant off the course if it appears as though that participant will not be able to complete the event in under 2 hours, 30 minutes.

Minimum Age
The minimum age allowed for participating in this event is 10 years of age.  Exceptions will be made based on parent/guardian request.  

Timing System
The HUB Coaching Greenville Triathlon will be timed using the ChampionChip Timing System.
(5 splits provided)

Swim Time Changes
If you are trying to make an adjustment to your estimated swim time change given during registration please click HERE to learn how to do this.

Our registration system allows for people to access their registrations and adjust their swim times prior to the event.

NOTE: All swim times must be adjusted before online registration closes. After this time, participants will no longer be able to make this adjustment on their registration (the system will lock out any changes). Swim times will not be adjusted after this time for any reason.

Submitting a Swim Time
All participants must submit a 100 yard swim time for seeding purposes.

Being a pool swim with a staggered start, participants are seeded from fastest to slowest. It is in your best interest to submit an accurate 100 yard "pace" time for your 400 meter swim. In other words, don't submit your fastest 100 yard swim time, submit a 100 yard time that represents what you'll do on event day over the 400 meter distance.

On-Site Registration
On-site registrations will be taken if the event does not reach its capacity prior to the event closing for on-line registration.  Athletes can register on-site with cash or credit / debit card only. Checks WILL NOT be taken.
