This is a Competitive Youth Triathlon Event! It is USAT sanctioned by a USAT Certified Youth Race Director. There will be Age Group awards, finisher’s medals and Youth t-shirts.
This first Triathlon of the 2 race series has been selected as part of the SMW (South Mid West) Triathlon's Regional calendar to acquire points for Regional rankings.
With the cooperation of the ELPD Chief of Police this will be a closed bike course!

TRANSITION AREA & GEAR CHECK
THE TRANSITION AREA OPENS AT 6:A.M. AND WILL CLOSE AT 7:15 A.M.
The Transition Area is for race Athletes and “ONE PARENT” only! Bikes, helmets, and gear will be checked prior to entry into Transition.
All athletes will be body-marked before entering Transition. If you ride your bike to the Transition area before the race or back to your vehicle after the race, your helmet must be on and fastened. Failure to do so will result in disqualification. You cannot take your bike out of Transition once it is racked. No one will be allowed in Transition area before or after the race until the Race Director announces that the Transition Area is open. It is our firm belief that every athlete has the right to unobstructed access to the Transition Area throughout his/her race. Assigned racking!
ADDITIONAL TRANSITION AREA INFORMATION
Once you bring your bike into the Transition Area - you will "NOT" be allowed to take your bike back out of the area. If you have mechanical issues - have them fixed before entering the Transition Area. Pump up your tires before coming to the Transition Area.
Your bike rack area needs only those things that are "essential" to your race.
Ipico Timing System
This will be timed using the Ipico/Active timing system. You will be given your chip race day morning. It will be removed after you cross the finish line. If you drop out of the race PLEASE be sure to return the chip to a "Chip" volunteer at the finish line. If not returned, you will incur a $35 replacement fee. Races results will be available on Active.com and a link will be posted on Tri Youth Racing website as well.
