  • There will be a maximum of 10-12 athletes per wave.  Athletes will swim two per lane.
  • The swim will start in the water (no diving or jumping).
  • One parent or guardian (16 years +) must accompany athletes in the 3-5 age group in the water (swim takes place in shallow end only for this age group) and on foot for the bike and run.
  • Athletes 3-5 years may use water wings, puddle jumpers or a life jacket.
  • No parental assistance in the 6+ age groups.
  • Life jackets are offered so that athletes feel 100% comfortable swimming in this environment. The life jacket is not intended as an aid for non-swimmers. It is not a requirement for athletes to continuously swim their designated distance. Resting by using the lane ropes or side walls is permitted and encouraged.
  • Life jackets will be offered and supplied for all age groups.
  • Contact us with special requests for the swim portion.

Bike

The bike course is a 1 km loop on a vehicle free road within the park. The road is paved and flat. Older age groups will do multiple loops to complete their respective distance.

Run

The run course takes athletes around the perimeter of the soccer field. The run is a 500 meter ‘track’ entirely on grass. Athletes will complete the required number of laps to achieve their respective distance. There will be one water station set up for all age groups.  The older age groups will pass the water station several times.
