Last Minute Race Updates
Updated 4/14/18, 1:10PM
Athletes, please review these last-minute updates to ensure a successful race day experience:
SWIM COURSE CHANGE
Due to changing ocean currents, the Swim Course will now start from the SOUTH. International distance swimmers will start near the Jetty Tower Life Guard station (pictured here) located at the southern tip of South Beach (150 meters north of the jetty wall). Classic distance swimmers will start near 3rd Street. Both distances will continue to exit at the same 5th Street exit point. At this time, race distances will not be altered.
BIKE COURSE UPDATE
Wet roadways quickly become slippery. Please ride cautiously, always being aware of your surrounding and SLOW DOWN at all turns. Also, please be advised of a bumpy surface along NE 2nd Ave. (approx. miles 4-6). Bright orange course markings will help you avoid potholes and rough surface areas.
With 80°F temperatures, possible rain and strong winds forecasted for tomorrow morning, the event will operate under a YELLOW event alert status (EAS). Conditions are less than ideal at this Moderate alert level, meaning athletes should be slow down and be prepared for worsening conditions.
CLEAR TRANSITION BAGS
As a reminder, all personal items brought into Transition must be transferred into the race-issued clear plastic bags. No backpacks or other bags will be permitted inside Transition.
Only the Biker on each relay team will be allowed to enter Transition. On race morning, following the swim portion, the Swimmer will pass their timing chip to their Biker within a Relay Pen, located just inside of Transition. The Biker will then proceed into Transition to grab their bike and begin the cycle portion. Upon completing the Bike Course, the Biker will enter Transition, rack their bike, then proceed to the Relay Pen located inside Transition where they will pass their timing chip to their Runner. Only the Runner will cross the Finish Line. Remaining team members can report to the Information Tent to receive their medals.
