* Helpful to bring a printout of your registration confirmation

You will not be permitted to race without a picture ID.

Items you will receive at check-in
* Bib number
* Swim Cap (required to wear during the swim)
* Timing Strap
* Partner supplied samples

    Checking in another athlete
    Each athlete must pick up their own packet.  You may not check-in for another athlete.

    Exceptions: A parent or guardian may pick up for their child.

    Note: Participants 17 and under must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian to sign event waivers.


    Bib Number
    At registration you will receive ONE bib number that the runner must wear on the front of their chest, since they will be crossing the finish line.

    Body Marking 
    All relay members will get body marked with the bib number assigned to them, so they can all be identified on the course.

    Timing Chip and Strap
    The athlete competing in the first discipline should securely attach the timing chip to their left ankle.  The chip and strap should be handed off to the next relay member inside the Transition Area ONLY at the designated RELAY area.  Each athlete should only wear the chip on the left ankle, never on the wrist.  Do not just grab it and go.  You must make sure it is secure on your ankle before leaving the Transition Area.  Exchanging outside of the Transition Area could result in a disqualification.

    Transition Area
    There will be a designated rack(s) for RELAYS only.  This is typically near one of the exit/entry points.  Please make sure all relay member’s gear is in this designated area. Even when the Transition Area is closed, relay members may still have access to the Transition Area to warm up and prepare for their discipline.

    Timing Chip & Strap

    Each athlete will be assigned a timing chip and strap. These will be available race morning unless otherwise stipulated in your race confirmation.  After check-in, proceed into transition and your bag will be at your spot on the rack.  Please ensure your bib number and timing strap match.

    You are responsible for this chip and strap.  Failure to turn it in for ANY reason will result in a $40 charge.  

    You must wear your chip and strap on your left ankle for the entire event, start to finish.  

    Following your finish you will be directed down the finish chute where there will be a chair and two bins with disinfectant solution for your chip/strap. Please remove your chip/strap, RE-VELCRO it and toss into the bin. 

    Timing & Scoring

    We provide all the timing and scoring services for each and every event we host.  This will be with ChampionChip or ChronoTrack timing systems.

    Throughout the course, there will be sets of timing mats or gators, typically under structures, indicating finish, bike in, run out, swim finish, etc. You must cross over these areas.  Do NOT avoid them or attempt to jump over them.

    Every effort will be made to supply you with a swim, bike, run, transition 1, transition 2, and finish times.  However, it is explicitly expressed that the electronic timing systems are not foolproof.  They are electronics and computers which are outside in the elements and they are not perfect systems.  We along with any other timer out there can only score what is captured in a system.

    Preliminary Results
    This event will be scored live with ChronoTrack.  You may track your finish via the Athlinks app or the ChronoTrack Live app.  Search by event.  There will be QR codes at the event for you to scan.

    Your results will be posted on the event website under the RESULTS tab located on the home page as well as event page. Every effort is made to post these by the following morning or within 24 hours of the event.

    ANY and ALL timing questions and inquiries must be sent to:

    Emailing or contacting event management in any other way will not guarantee an attempt to retrieve results.

    Body Marking (Tattoos)

    All athletes and all relay members will be body marked with their race number.  After picking up your chip and strap please proceed to the body marking area typically designated with a large BODY MARKING flag.  You must have your bib number for this process.  

    Both your biceps will be marked with your bib number, going down, not across


    Your RIGHT calf will be marked with your age (as of 12/31/2022)

    Your LEFT calf will be marked with the event you are participating in
