Bike Transition (orange down arrow on map)

After they swim their laps they will go out the North East gate of the pool and get their bikes in the transfer section. Some suggested items to have in their bag at the transition area: towel to dry off, shoes and socks to wear for the bike and run, dry shirt and shorts to throw on over swimsuits, or not, child’s choice. HELMETS REQUIRED for biking portion of the race. No helmet, no race.

Passing-TELL YOUR CHILDREN that when passing during the biking section to make sure the path is clear and there is space to safely pass, if there is not then they need to wait until there is, this isn’t a timed race, so there is not enough rush to risk injury.

*NO earphones or music devices are allowed to be worn or used during the race. Participants please leave all valuables and electronics in your car, or with a parent, so they are not lost, stolen, or broken during the race.

Course

PARTICIPANTS STAY TO THE LEFT SIDE OF THE COURSE AT ALL TIMES, AND PASS WITH CAUTION.

The course will be marked with cones and tape, and there will be volunteers at crucial spots and turn arounds to direct the children. Parents please stay off the course, unless you are a course volunteer and have been assigned to a spot. The bike paths will be full of kids biking and it may get tricky with bikers or runners trying to avoid running you over or getting confused about who is a parent and who is a volunteer.

Run Transition (yellow up arrow on map)

Transition to run will be after they’ve biked along the bike path and behind fat cats (intermediate bikers only), they will come back across the west bridge and transition to a run-which starts by going across the middle bridge and around the north fields (intermediate 2 laps, beginners 1 lap), then coming back across the middle bridge to finish the race.

Finish Line (yellow star on map)

The Finish Line will be in the parking lot by the bike transition area on the north east side of the pool.

We will have Youth Triathlon Medals at the finish line to put on the participant as they cross the line!

Parking

Seeing as our race will cross the Rexburg Rapids parking lot, all parking lots will be closed except for the large main one north of the fields, please enter from the North East entrance on N 1st E.
