4th Annual Fermilab GSA Triathlon
Saturday, August 20, 2005
Thanks to our volunteer photographer, Pavel Snopok! He did a great job capturing the race and everyone in it. Check out the pictures!
We had a great turn-out this year, the largest ever with 21 participants. Even the weather cooperated - the prediction was for thunderstorms all morning, but instead things cleared up by 7:30am and stayed clear!
Our champions will receive $25 gift certificates to Amazon.com for their speedy performance.
The GSA would like to thank everyone who participated. A special thanks to the Fermilab Security who provided equipment and help with traffic control for our athletes during the cycling portion of the race. We'd also like to thank Jean Guyer for letting us use the pool and FES-Services for the use of cones for the running course.
Listed in the table below are the split times for each participant.
Course Description and DetailsThe race will start at the Kuhn barn at 8:15am. All race participants should plan to arrive by 7:30am to check-in, get a number and a starting position. The race meeting will start at 7:45am. YOU MUST ATTEND THE RACE MEETING IN ORDER TO RACE! The course consists of the following:
RegistrationRegistration will be open until 7:45am on Saturday morning. The race is FREE and is open to anyone who wants to participate, including all friends and family of Fermilab ID holders!
Registration is open to both individual participants and teams of two or three people. So there is no excuse to not participate.
If you plan on participating please email the GSA officers to pre-register. It will also be possible to register for the event on Saturday morning.
VolunteeringEven if you aren't feeling like swimming, biking, and running your little heart out on Saturday, you can still participate in the triathlon! We need approximately 12 volunteers to help with timing and traffic control along the race routes. If you're interested in volunteering, email the GSA officers. It's also a good opportunity to cheer on the racers!
Race DetailsWhat you should bring.
BIKE: The transition area will be right outside the pool in front of the Kuhn barn. The bike course will be on roads inside Fermilab. Roads will still be open to traffic so participants will need to obey the rules of the road and yield to automobile and pedestrian traffic. Fermilab security and other volunteers will be helping with traffic control at key intersections on the race course. The course will also be marked and maps will be available at the race.
The bike course will be as follows:
RUN: The bicycle portion of the race ends back at Kuhn barn where the bicycle will be given up for a pair of sneakers. The run is on both paved roads and a small path that circles the A.E. Sea. The path is un-even so runners should be prepared for this "off-road" run.
The run course will be as follows:
Festivities at the BarnEven if you aren't feeling like racing Saturday morning, come join in the fun and cheer on those who are racing! The audience will get to see the racers several times during the event so it will be a great chance to cheer and offer encouragement.
We'll also have bagels, fruit, and other snacks for racers and spectators alike at the barn. There will also be plenty of water and Gatorade to go around.
Prizes will be awarded to the first male and first female participants.
In case of rain/thunderstormThe lifeguard will determine if the weather is too severe to open the pool. If that is the case, the race will be postponed until the weather clears. If the lifeguard will not be available at that time, or the delay lasts longer than a few hours, the race may have to be cancelled.
If you have any questions or comments, please don't hesitate
to mail the GSA officers.
