Late registration is considered any registration after July 7th. We will have extras, but T-shirts will not be guaranteed on race day for anyone registering after July 7th. Day of registration starts at 7:00 am.
The adult race is capped at 180 participants...register early, we're expected to sell out fast. If you bring the kids to race too, register for an earlier wave so you're guaranteed to be finished before they start.

Estimated Swim Time
Athletes will be placed for the swim start based on their estimated swim time. This will allow the faster swimmers to go first, and keep them from catching the slower swimmers. Please do your best to have an accurate time.
