Procedure on Race Day
The efficient people at STARTLINE TIMING will be providing electronic "CHIP" timing for our race. they have been great at keeping our race on-time, and even ahead of schedule, so please follow the instructions:

  • Check-in at the Curling Club at least 1 hour prior to your race time.
  • You will receive your race packet, Timing Chip, and Body Marking (we have great body markers!). Your heat time will also be confirmed.
  • Report to the Pool Marshal at least 30 minutes before your heat (there are areas on the pool deck to wait - but please stay out of the way of racers)
  • Please be sure your bike is in proper working order prior to race day - this is YOUR responsibility! Check your brakes, seat and handlebars (I speak from experience having had a nasty experience with a loose seat part).
  • Helmets are MANDATORY - ANSI, SNELL, or CSA approved
  • Lets be safe out there!

Race Waiver
You will be required to sign a race waiver when you receive your race packet. No Waiver, No Race. Sorry folks - its the times we live in!

Parking is available behind the Curling Club, Post Office, Court House, or side streets. Overflow is west of the pool as the bikes go south, and runners go east. Parking on the race route increases the likelihood of damage to your "ride".

Timing and Results
This is a chip timed race provided by STARTLINE TIMING - the most
accurate timing possible. You will receive your CHIP when you check in
on race day. Follow their instructions and make sure you wear your chip
and cross the appropriate mats:
Swim - from the start until out of pool
Bike - from the edge of pool until off the bike and out of transitions area
Run - from transition to end of race
Results will be found following the race at: www.startlinetiming.com

Since most prizes are random draws check the board to see if you are a
winner. You can pick up your prize when you register.

We love teams. It is up to you how you will exchange the chip.
Just remember it must be worn around the ankle.

There will be water at the bike turns and every 2 km on the run. We
have first aiders and EMT's at various points along the route.
(We hope not to use them.)

Just a couple of notes:
1. We do get trains. Don't argue with them! Obey the volunteers at the
tracks. They will record the time you were held up by the train and this
will be subtracted from your finish time. You can also use this time to
2. Flat tires happen. The route is checked before the race for areas of
concern. It would be good advice to learn how to change a tire before
meeting the real experience.
