TIME & LOCATION
FRI, JULY 26
RULES & REQUIREMENTS
GOVERNMENT ISSUED PHOTO IDS - All athletes will be required to show a government issued photo ID to pickup your packet (driver’s license or Passport preferred). Onsite proof of an annual or 1-day USA Triathlon license is not necessary as our registration system auto verifies at time of registration.
YOU MUST PICKUP YOUR PACKET - All athletes must pick up their own packet in person during packet pickup hours. There is no event day packet pickup. No exceptions.
ATHLETE AGE DETERMINATION - The athlete's age is determined by how old they are at the end of that event year (12/31/XX).
WHO IS REQUIRED TO ATTEND PACKET PICKUP AND THE PRE RACE BRIEFING - All athletes and their support team captains are required to checkin to packet pickup TOGETHER and to be at the pre-race briefing TOGETHER, no exceptions. We would prefer that if an athlete has more than one support team member that all team members come to packet pickup together and sign the paperwork. The athlete, and ALL support team members MUST sign the support waiver. However, do realize that in some situations the entire team may not be able to make it. It's mandatory the athlete and captain checkin together but if the rest of the team (if more than just those two) cannot make it, the athlete should send the support team waiver to the other member(s), have them fill it out and sign it, and the athlete or support team captain may turn those absentee waiver forms on their behalf during packet pickup.
BRING YOUR HELMET AND HIGH VIS + REFLECTIVE CYCLING TOP - showing us this ahead of time doesn't get you out of being checked during the race before you leave T1, but it does give you time to fix it if your top isn’t bright enough or reflective enough. Remember that your helmet must have a CPSC sticker (safety inspection sticker). The difference between this and our other two events is that your inspection sticker for this event can be from any country, not just the USA.
MOUNTAIN RUN PACK INSPECTION - All athletes and support (if they are running any part, or all, of the run with the athlete) must show their run pack they will carry with them for the entire run with all the mandatory items. This will be checked again before anyone is permitted to leave T2 but doing it at packet pickup will give the athlete some time to fix any issues they may have.
EVENT WAIVER - All athletes signed our event waiver when they registered so they will not, at this time, be required to sign anything else, HOWEVER, all support (both bike and any run support) must make sure they are in our system and have signed a waiver at time of packet pickup.
(1) Athlete - Silicone Swim Cap - Bright red silicone swim cap. Must be worn over your neoprene cap at all times during the swim portion of the event.
(3) Athlete - Swim Cap Stickers - one on each side and the third one on the middle front of the cap. They should stick just fine, if you find yours will not stay on then you will not be penalized for not having them. We will mark the top of your hand with your number (marker) on race morning and check you in and out of the water for the swim. The cap numbers make it easier but some have reported at Alaska that theirs did not stick. Most had no issue with them staying on. Please attempt to put them on.
(0) Athlete - Temporary Set of Body Marking Tattoos - We are not doing temporary tattoos. Due to the weather and the fact that everyone will almost certainly be covered up the entire time, it’s unnecessary.
(3) Athlete - Bike Helmet Numbers - Helmet stickers are to be worn on the front and both sides of the helmet.
(2) Athlete - Bike Frame Stickers - Bike frame stickers go on either your seat post/tube, top tube, down tube, or head tube. Pretty much anywhere EXCEPT the fork chain or seat stays. Once you identify where is most visible of the choices above (preferred choices listed in the order we would like) please match the sticker placement on both sides of the bike.
(2) Athlete - Bike/Run Bib Numbers - All athletes will receive a specifically labelled bike and run bib. Each specific bib has the course map on the back. All athletes must wear the bike bib facing backwards on the bike and the run bib facing forwards on the run.
(1) Athlete - Wristband - This blue wristband is to be worn by the athlete at all times from the moment they pickup their packet until the moment they claim their finisher’s shirt at Sunday’s Brunch.
(1) Support Team - Shirt - This blue support shirt is to be worn by whomever is helping you out of the water, through T1, on the bike, and through T2. If that person changes (if you have more than one support person registered) the shirt should be transitioned to whomever is doing support at that moment. The shirt is NOT required for the support runner (if you have one), just the wristband. If your support runner has lost the wristband the shirt must then be worn by him/her during the run.
(1) Support Team - Wristband - This White wristband should go on the support runner if you have one. If you don’t, or if the support runner and bike support are same, it goes on that person. The wristband is really just our way of identifying support if they run with you as they will likely not want to wear the support shirt while running. If no one is running then whomever is wearing the shirt during T1, Bike, and T2 will also wear the wristband.
(2) Support Team - Car Stickers - Support receives a big sticker that goes on the bottom right corner of the back windshield warning other passing motorists about the event. There is also a small number sticker (same as the bike and swim stickers) that goes just above the big support sticker to identify what athlete (by number) the support vehicle is linked to.
