Whether competing for charity, a personal challenge, to lose weight, boost confidence or get fit our triathlons guarantee a fun and friendly atmosphere.

Although the thought of it may be terrifying a triathlon needn’t be quite so tough! Your first triathlon needn’t be such an arduous feat. The triathlon consists of a swim, bike and run. Three disciplines to test every ounce of endurance and mental toughness. A triathlon is not that hard to prepare for. A “Fun” or “Sprint” distance triathlon is popular as a first initiation into triathlon.

Following the beginners training tips will give you the confidence and endurance to help you through the event.

The transition area opens at 5:30 AM and regardless of your wave, your equipment must be checked into transition by no later than 7:15 AM. The racks provided will be numbered according to your race number. You must rack your bike accordingly. You must also return your bike to the same location in the racks after the bike portion, before your run. You will not be able to pick up your bike until the last cyclist is back from the bike course. Your equipment must be removed from transition by 1:00 PM. THE EVENT IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR LOST OR STOLEN ITEMS.

Extra equipment (wheels, 2nd helmet, 2nd wetsuit, etc.) will not be allowed in the transition area. Transition is fenced and secured. Gear bags over 24" will not be allowed in transition. NO COOLERS, EITHER!!

Current ANSI, CPSC or SNELL approved helmets are required during the cycling portion of the event. You will be prohibited from participating if you don't have a helmet (NO REFUNDS). Helmets MUST be buckled in place during ALL aspects of the bike, including transition area. Failing to have your helmet buckled could result in a DQ.

Your race number must be visible on your body, bike frame, bike helmet and the front of your race jersey or race belt.

It is strongly encouraged that you have your bike properly fitted, inspected and tuned no more than 3 weeks before the race. This would also include inspecting your brake pads and tires. Breakaway Bicycle and Fitness will be on site Saturday and Sunday providing technical support. The bike leg takes place on city streets and county roads that are open to vehicular traffic. Although the traffic will be relatively light and volunteers and police agencies will be assisting on the course, you need to stay highly alert at all times to your surroundings. It is always very easy to get caught up in your cycling and the race itself, however, you NEED to be watchful of what's going on. This includes watching for vehicles, intersections, turn around area, watching out for fellow competitors, and paying attention to instructions by course volunteers. It is the athlete's responsibility to know the bike course.
