FOR SATURDAY PACKET PICK UP AND RACE DAY: If there are spots available (first come first serve), then we recommend parking in the day-use area (all-day pass for $9). You can also park along the road, but be sure to park completely off of the pavement/asphalt. Do not park in any areas with “No Parking” signs posted. This is for the safety of participants, spectators, and drivers. Citations may be given to those in violation. Please give yourself plenty of time in case you need to walk a few minutes to get to the transition area. Sunrise is approximately 5:45 AM, so you may want a flashlight for walking to transition.
Schedule of Events & Logistics
Transition: Opens at 5:45 AM, and closes 15 minutes prior to your swim start. Only athletes allowed in transition. Please be kind and aware of other athletes at all times in transition.
Swim Times and Format:
- 7:00 AM – Rolling start for all 70.4 Long Course categories. This year will be a rolling start to help provide social distancing, with all male, female, and relay categories lining up together. Athletes self-select their spot in line. We recommend finding a spot according to approximate expected swim time. When athletes get to the front of the line the director will be starting two athletes at a time approximately 5 seconds apart. Please be sure to keep at least 6 feet between you and the people in front of you when waiting in line.
- 7:30 AM – Rolling start for all Olympic Categories
No wetsuit stripping at this year’s event to help prevent close contact. We hope this can return next year.
Awards ceremonies are contingent on results posting, but we aim to host them at approximately 11:00 AM (Olympic), 12:30 PM (70.4 Overall/Master’s Winners) and 2:00PM (70.4 Age Group).
For the safety of our athletes and volunteers we must adhere to the timing coordinated with permitting and safety personnel. The swim course closes after 1 hour and 10 minutes, the bike course closes after 5 hours and 15 minutes, and the run course closes by 3:00 PM. If an athlete is still on one of the courses at these cutoff times, then they may be asked by volunteers or staff to exit the course, and turn in their timing chip.
Know the Course: Map and aid stations
Be sure to take a close look at course maps (Long Course, Olympic). There is an aid station at the bike out/run out of transition. There are no additional aid stations on the Olympic bike course. There are aid stations at approximately mile 20 (water and Gatorade drink bottles to grab, and GU Gels), and mile 38 (water and Gatorade bottles and GU Gels) of the Long Course bike. There are run aid stations approximately every 1.5 miles on the run courses with water, electrolyte drinks, gels, and snacks.
While there will be volunteers and Rangers to help stop traffic, Lake Mary Road is open to traffic, and it is the racer’s responsibility to follow all course signs and rules of the road. Please ride, run, and drive safely.
