Race Day Information

Please tell your friends that there will be race day registration for the Give-It-A-Tri and all Duathlons. If you are hoping to race in the triathlon events these have been sold out for over a month. There are usually some no shows for all races so for athletes willing to take the chance, you can register for a duathlon and hope to transfer to a triathlon at the last minute. If no triathlon spot opens up you can race in the duathlon.

Bike Security

In order to ensure bike security every participant arriving to race site will be stopped as they are initially entering transition and they will receive two (2) bracelets. The first bracelet will be placed on the participant’s wrist and the second bracelet will be put on the participant’s bike. The two bracelets have matching numbers and in order to leave transition after the race is complete the participant must have both bracelets with the same matching number. You will be asked to show your bracelet on your wrist every time you enter transition.
