Heat Start Time
All registrants and team leaders will be emailed their heat start time by 10:00 am Saturday March 2nd.
Participants may arrive beginning at 7:30am on Sunday, March 3. The competition pool will be open for warm-ups until 7:50am. Participants competing in later heats may warm up in the shallow end. All participants should be on the pool deck, ready to compete, 30 minutes before their start time. There will be a brief meeting to cover all event rules and procedures 5 minutes before each heat. The first heat will begin promptly at 8am, and heats will consist of no more than 12 people.
Official times will be recorded on time-tracker cards. Each individual will have one card, where times from each segment can be recorded. Teams will receive one card to be passed among the members of that team. At the end of each segment, an official timekeeper will record the athlete's time on his or her card and pass the card to the escort. Participants do not need to be responsible for their own time cards. After the running segment, all cards will be submitted to the officials and final times and places will be determined by Sunday evening.
All segments will be started by an IUSC official. Swimmers may start either in the water or from a standing start on the side of the deck (no running starts). Swimmers should start only when prompted by the official starter. Upon finishing the swimming segment, athletes will be required to change into dry clothing and athletic clothes before proceeding to the biking segment. There will be no running in the SRSC facility between segments. Any participant seen running on deck or between segments will receive an automatic disqualification. Participants will be directed from the pool to the bikes, and the biking segment will begin when the athlete starts pedaling. Official biking times will be recorded by timekeepers. Participants will not be permitted to leave the biking segment until their time has been recorded. Upon finishing the biking segment, participants should proceed to the track to begin the running segment. Laps and times will be recorded by official timekeepers. There will not be a running clock during the transition periods.
*During the transition periods, participants will only be allowed in the locker rooms (during the transition between the swim and the bike) and the upstairs restrooms. Team members competing in the biking and running segments may choose to watch the other segments of the race. Any person leaving the designated areas without special permission from an event official will be disqualified.
