Course Description and DetailsThe race will start at the Kuhn barn at 8:00 am. All race participants should plan to arrive by 7:30am to check-in, get a number and a starting position. YOU MUST ATTEND THE RACE MEETING IN ORDER TO RACE! The course consists of the following:
RegistrationREGISTRATION IS OPEN!
The race is FREE and is open to all Fermilab Users and Fermilab ID holders!
Registration is open to both individual participants and teams. So if you are only interested in one or two of the legs grab your friends to help out with the other legs. There can be teams of 2 or 3 people. It's going to be a blast and we hope to see you all out there to Swim! Bike! Run!
If you plan on participating please email the listed GSA officer to pre-register.
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 officer. It's also a good opportunity to cheer on the racers! The racers love the support so come on out and help them get through the event.
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 snacks for racers and spectators alike at the barn. There will also be plenty of water and Gatorade to go around.
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.
