FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Does my child need a helmet?
All cyclists MUST wear helmets.
Which group/wave goes first?
Leap frogs are the first to take the plunge followed by Road Runners and Gladiators.
What is “Packet Pick-Up”
Packet Pick-Up is where you’ll receive race day information (race number, shirt, etc.) You may pick your packet up for other kids or have someone pick up your packet. The child does not need to come to packet pick-up.
Packet Pick-Up Information,
Are parents allowed on the course to help the child?
ONE parent is allowed in transition while the child transitions from swim to bike & bike to run. Parents are allowed in transition to help the child set-up.
NOTE: Parents are also allowed to do the run portion of the event with their big time triathlete child!
What if we have a bike problem (flat tire, bad chain, etc.) on race day?
Knobbies and Slicks Bike Shop will be on-hand to help.
What else should I be asking?
Now that is a good question. Rather than have you read for the next few hours, we’ve added a MANDATORY parents and child meeting at the race site at 7:10 a.m. on race day. In a nutshell, don’t stress. Simply show up with a swimsuit, bike & helmet and some running shoes. We will take it from there.
