Race Day info

For parking on race morning, please use the main entrance to the Club at Spindletop Hall and then follow volunteer directions into the field next to Spindletop. There will be parking volunteers race morning to guide you, so please follow their directions!!

There will be bike mechanics from Swim Bike Run of KY on hand race morning until the race begins to help with any minor bike problems.

Several Port-A-Potties will be located near transition, and there are restrooms in the “Barn” next to the Tri For Sight tent, and in the pool house locker rooms hear the pool deck.

The transition area will be open for transition set-up from 5:45 am – 7:15 am race morning. Before you enter the transition area, you must have your timing chip, your body marking and your bike number affixed to your bike. Please have all of this done in advance of going to transition as volunteers will be asking for all of this.

For out of town participants, packet pick up is available from 5:30-6:30 at the tent. In this area will also be body-marking and timing chip distribution. You will need to show your race number bib to receive your body marking and your chip, so make sure you bring it!

A mandatory pre-race meeting will begin in the transition area promptly at 7:20 am. All athletes are to attend! After the conclusion of the meeting, triathletes will make their way to the pool and get in order of swim seed time (your race number). Volunteers will be asking athletes to get in order as they enter the gate onto the pool deck, so please cooperate with them. If you want to wear clothing onto the pool deck, we will arrange for a drop off location for you so items can be collected after the conclusion of the event.

Duathletes will be directed to the Finish Line for the start of the duathlon at approximately 7:40. The triathlon is scheduled to start at 7:45am.

*Notes: if you have been given permission to pick up your race packet Sunday morning, please arrive no later than 6:15 am to allow yourself plenty of time to get situated race morning. USAT entrants please be prepared to show your USAT membership card (or proof of membership if your card is unavailable.) All non-USAT entrants who did not do so on line, must sign a USAT waiver when picking up their packet. Maximum number of participants is 350 for the triathlon and 150 for the duathlon.

Weather contingency plan – In the case that we have threatening weather that would force us to cancel the swim portion of the triathlon, the event may be changed at the Race Director’s discretion to include a short run to replace the swim. If weather is so severe that the safety of participants on any portion of the course is a concern, the event will be delayed to see if it can be started later in the morning. If bad weather conditions persist, the event may be cancelled or rescheduled for the following weekend.
