Each athlete will need:
- Running Clothes, Socks, & Shoes
- Water Bottle for the transition area
At check-in, each participant will receive a race number (with pins to attach to clothing).
Athletes will start outside the transition area with a time trial start. Helmets must be worn with chin straps secured at any time the athlete is on their bike (whether the bike is in motion or not). Volunteers will help direct athletes to begin their bike ride.
After the bike segment, athletes will head to the transition area to return their bikes and helmets, change into any clothes needed for the run and head out. Volunteers will help direct athletes to the “Run Out” path to begin the last leg of the race. All runners must display their race number on the front of their body — either pinned to their shirt, shorts or attached to a race belt.

Once the event begins, the transition area will be closed to all family and friends. Only athletes and volunteers will be allowed in the transition area during the event. Volunteers will be available to help tie shoes, assist athletes, and direct the kids where to go.
