About This Activity

Great opportunity to try out Triathlon or practice transitions and go fast. Pool swim & closed lanes & roads for the bike & run. Great family atmosphere.

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. We've also redesigned the transition & finish line areas...in preparation of 500+ participants.

Adult Race

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 same course (with a little extra) as the kids run, which uses the neighborhood side walks and walking paths. Visit the Fivestarntp.com page for complete information on either race.

Course

The swim will be done in the Mountain View Aquatics Center Pool; The bike leg will be done on the partially closed roads through East Cobb County (totally closed for the kids); and the run will be done on the sidewalks in the surrounding areas.

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.

Five Star Turkey Trot Qualifier

All participants registered for the 5K or Fun Run will qualify for FREE entry into the Five Star Turkey Trot held on Thanksgiving Day. See race website for details.

All pre-registered participants are guaranteed a race t-shirt and some goodies. All race finishers receive a finishers award, as well as adult male and female overall and all the regular 5 year age groups. Great festive atmosphere for the entire family. Kids receive male and female top 3 awards in the age group in which they raced.
