Lifeguards will be on kayaks and there for your safety. If you need to rest, let a lifeguard know. You will not be penalized for resting on a kayak. Wetsuits are allowed.
The bike course is out and back to Lake Como using Wheelock Parkway. The course is closed to traffic but still use all the caution you would use on an open course. All corners will have volunteers and police for directions and safety. Drafting is not allowed. Helmets must be worn.
the 3.1mile run circles Lake Phalen clockwise. International distance participants do two loops. There is one water stop on the 5K run. International course participants will have 3 water stops. Where there are two paths, use the outside path.
Awards will be presented to the top 3 men and top 3 women in each category.
The category is the group you will be timed in. Most people choose Age Group, meaning they are timed against/compared to those in their age group.
Age groups are divided by: 19 and under, 20-24, 25 -29, 30-34, 35 -39, 40-44, 45 – 49, 50-54, 54 – 59, 60-64, 65 – 69, 70 and above. Other categories include: Elite, Clydesdale (men over 200 lbs), Athena (women over 145 pounds)

A team is made up of 2 or 3 people. 3 people would include a swimmer, a biker and a runner. If you have 2 people, one person will be doing 2 of the events. For instance, the swimmer may also be doing the running portion. A team is working together for one collective finish time. Your team will have one timing chip, which is on a velcro strap to be worn on your ankle. The timing chip is worn by the swimmer, then given to the biker then given to the runner. You will meet each other in the “transition area“ where you will do the exchange of the timing chip from person to person. The transition area is where you will park your bike, and keep all of your belongings. It is a secure, fenced in area.
the event is chip timed with a velcro ankle strap. The chips will be collected at the finish line. If for some reason you do not start, or do not finish the race, your chip must be turned in or mailed in. You will be charged $30 if your chip is not turned in.
