Great opportunity to try out Triathlon or practice transition and go fast! The kids do the entire event on the park grounds...Pool swim, and NO TRAFFIC on the bike & run. The Adults use the pool, bike on the roads, but return to the park for their run.
New for 2014
We've added loads of new gear for the summer, the biggest of which is CHIP TIMING & LIVE RESULTS! We've also added several new team members, one of which is dedicated to acquiring volunteers. We super excited about the triathlons this year, and can wait to see everyone.

Late Registration & Day of Registration
Late registration is considered any registration after July 6th. We will have extras, but T-shirts will not be guaranteed on race day for anyone registering after July 6th. Day of registration starts at 7:00 am.
The kids race is capped at 180 participants (120 for the adults)...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.

Before the kids jump in the water, the adults have their race. The adults do their bike on the road, and their run on the Kids bike course, which is completely on the park grounds. Visit the Fivestarntp.com page for complete information on either race.
The swim will be done in the Ruby Fulbright Pool; The bike leg will be done on the roads through Habersham County; and the run will be done on the park grounds using a combination of the paved walking trail and the track.
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.
