Race Day Check In

Even if you attend packet pickup on Friday, you must check in Race Morning to get body markings & your timing chip.

You must be checked in by 7:30AM

Transition area must be set up and CLEAR by 7:45am

 

Race Day Drop Off/Pick Up Lane

Saturday morning, the front of the YMCA at 2710 Market Street  will be utilized as a drop off/pick up lane.

 This is primarily for the shuttle, but can also be used for

ü  Families who need to drop off their bikes before the race

ü  Families who must leave early from the event

 Note, there is a walk through a pedestrian area of the construction zone to utilize this area.

 

 

 

Swim start information:   Swimmers will start in the pool and will be given a countdown of "3...2...1...go".   That is when their time will begin.  All swimmers will go off in numeric order.  These numbers were assigned based on the swim seed times that were given during registration.  Faster swimmers will start toward the front of the group, slower swimmers (or swimmers with no seed time given) will start toward the back.  It is OK for your child to start at the back of the group if they choose.  Remember, their time will not start until they are told "go" regardless of where they start.  A swimmer can always tell the starter to give a little extra time before they start.  

For example:  There was no seed time given for Timmy so he is starting in the back of his group.  But he is a fast swimmer and does not want to have to pass a lot of other swimmers.  Tell him to tell the starter to give a little extra time before he starts so that the pool can clear.  

Seed times can not be changed at the race.  Your child can move BACK in their start time, but can not move FORWARD.

Age groups will start in the following order:

11-13  -  orange  - #'s 1-35

9-10  -  blue  -  #'s 66-123

7-8  -  red  -  #'s 141-186

5-6  -  green  -  #'s 221-251

 

 

 

HOW TO REGISTER YOUR CHILD

In order to register your child for this event you will need to create a profile for that child and log in under that profile.  Click on "Free Sign Up" in the upper right hand corner of this page.  Fill in the information for the child that you are registering.  You can use your own email addess, but be sure that your child's name and birthdate are correct.  You will then be able to register the child for the race.  Toward the end of the registration form you will be given the option to "Add another participant".  You can click on this to register your other child/children without having to create a separate profile for each child.
