Transition

Opens – 5:30 am   TWO TRANSITION EVENT!  T-1 = Beach T-2 = off road as you are re-entering the park at the maintenance building.  RUN GEAR ONLY AT T-2.  Bike & Swim gear T-1.  
No friends or family members allowed in the transition area for any reason.  The race director and race officials will close the transition area 30-45 minutes before race start to ensure all athletes are at the starting area for mandatory course meeting and announcements.  Once the transition area is closed, you will NOT be permitted back in before the race starts.  Family/Friends will not be permitted in for any reason at any time throughout the event.

Re-Opens
When the last cyclist is off the course and has headed out for the run.  This time is variable and we will make announcements at the event when the transition area is ready to re-open.

Any athletes removing gear from transition areas before the announcer or race director has officially opened the transition area will be DISQUALIFIED from the race!  This pertains to all athletes of all distances.  All athletes deserve a clear transition.

In the event of inclement weather, it is recommended you have warm, dry clothing outside the transition area to put on following your finish due to other athletes still being on the bike course.

Timing Chip
When you have completed the race, please do NOT enter the transition area wearing your timing chip.  PLEASE remove your chip before re-entering the transition area and exiting again.  This will cause a timing error.

Racking
You must rack according to your race number, based on the sequence numbers placed at the end of each row.  Please remember racks will hold 7 bikes racked with the seat tip on support bar.  Please be courteous to fellow athletes to ensure there is space for 7 bikes on a rack.  If there is not enough room for your bike on your designated rack, please see a 3D Team member and we will help.  Please do not move another athletes bike or gear.

Aid Station
Located at the run in/out chute with water and electrolyte replacement.

Directional
Run In/Out and Bike In/Out chutes are clearly marked on the large structures at either end.   It is your responsibility to go the right direction while racing in the transition area.

Super Sprint

One of the first to launch the Super Sprint back in 2014, the goal with it was to provide an intro to Triathlon.  No matter your age, 6 yrs to 80+ yrs. the final wave of the day to start gets you out of the chaos of the start, and keeps you with like-minded athletes.  A perfect introductory distance that we try to keep non-competitive with no awards, but of course, everyone gets a finisher medal.  Come on out and Try your first TRI.  Questions, don’t hesitate, any question is a good question!  info@3disciplines.com.
