PLEASE DO NOT ALTER YOUR RACE NUMBERS IN ANY WAY (cutting down, display incorrectly, etc.)! THE USAT OFFICIALS WILL PENALIZE YOU IF YOU DO. There are three race numbers in your race packet that you are required to display during the event. The bicycle frame number is the large sticker and should be wrapped around your seat post or frame so that the number is upright and visible from both sides of your bicycle. The small sticker is the helmet number and must be affixed to the front of your helmet. The run number must be displayed during the run segment on the front of your body. You will not need any pins for your run race number.
The swim cap placed in your race packet must be worn during the swim. Do not trade your swim cap with another athlete, as the caps are color coded to assist race management in organizing you at the swim start. The cap must be worn during the entire swim and taken back to the transition area with you. A variable time penalty will be assessed to anyone leaving their cap on the beach.
Please notify a race official and return your timing chip at the finish line if you drop out of the race. YOUR TIMING CHIP MAY ONLY BE RETURNED AT THE FINISH LINE! DO NOT GIVE IT TO ANYONE ELSEWHERE ON THE COURSE.
Bike check-in on Saturday, race morning, is MANDATORY. You may check your bike in anytime between 5 a.m. and 6:15 a.m. For security reasons, once your bike is checked in, you will not be able to remove it until after the race and transition is opened. We will have plenty of guards keeping a close eye on your precious set of wheels! With that being said, please know that you are responsible for all valuables left in transition.
Only registered racers that have their race number will be allowed to enter the transition area at any time, before, during, or after the race. This is for the protection of your equipment, so please obey all of the rules and respect the security guards who are there protecting your stuff! If you lose your wristband please go to the information tent for assistance in retrieving your bike. ANYONE CAUGHT TRYING TO JUMP, CLIMB, OR CROSS THE TRANSITION SECURITY FENCE AT ANY TIME WILL BE IMMEDIATELY DISQUALIFIED-EVEN AFTER THE EVENT! You may only enter transition at the 2 guarded entrances-NO EXCEPTIONS! We are serious about securing your valuables! You should be too!
"I attended the Pre Race clinic and it was awesome. I am a beginner Triathlete and this past Sunday was my first race and now I am hooked. Planning to do the July 4 Race at Tradewinds Park. The Coach taught me so many tips and clues about the upcoming race the next day Sunday. Her talk was designed in easy way to understand. She is a great asset to your company. She taught us the rules and regulations. Out there on the course so many penalties I noticed that it made me want to become an official and continue doing the triathlons and keep the sport legal and enjoyable. I will continue doing Multirace Triathlons. Thank you again for a great first time experience." - Beginner Triathlete
