Mississippi's Only Indoor Triathlon Series!! (Swim 20 Minutes)--(Bike 20 Minutes)--(Run 20 Minutes) The Lakeland Courthouse is the home for this Inaugural Event! This event will be held 4 times each year, once per quarter. Participants who do the first 3 races, get the 4th race of that same year for FREE!
You have 20 minutes from when your wave starts to swim as many lengths of the pool as possible, with credit given for a 1/2 length. The Mako Volunteers will meet you in your lane at your wave start, count your lengths (and 1/2 length if applicable), and alert you when SWIM time is up. Example: If your wave start is 7:00am, your SWIM starts at 7:00am and ends at 7:20am.
You will have 20 minutes to BIKE as far as you can possibly go! The Mako volunteers will record your distance from the Spin Bike computer when your 20-minute time expires. There is an Automatic 5-Minute transition between Swim and Bike. Example: If your wave start is 7:00am, your Swim ended at 7:20, and your Bike will start at 7:25 and end at 7:45.
Time to finish this thing! You now get 20 minutes of quality Treadmill time! The Mako volunteers will record your total run/walk distance. There is an automatic 5-minute transition time between Bike and Run. Example: If your wave start was 7am, Swim is from 7-7:20, Transition 1 is from 7:20-7:25, Bike is from 7:25-7:45, Transition 2 is from 7:45-7:50, and Run is from 7:50-8:10.
We have an automatic 5-Minute Transition between each discipline. Example: If you are Wave #1 and start at 7:00am, you will Swim from 7:00-7:20 and then you will have 5-Minutes to go from Swim Area to Bike Area. Bike discipline will start at 7:25 and end at 7:45 and then you will have 5-minutes to go from Bike area to Run area. Run discipline will start at 7:50 and end at 8:10. There is no starting early for those that transition faster!
The # of participants will determine the # of points per discipline. Example: If there are 100 participants, there will be 100 Swim Points, 100 Bike Points, and 100 Run Points. First Place Swim would receive 100 points, Last Place Swim would receive 1 point. Same for Bike and Run. The person with most points (in their division) wins! Division age is determined via your age as of December 31 of current race year.
