Divisions & Age Groups

Age Group

Age groups are separated in 5-year increments. Your race age is based on your age on December 31st of this year. This is done so that you race at the same age for the entire season.

Individual Age Groups Men and Women
19 & Under, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, 75+

The minimum age to participate in this event is 12 years old.

Open

The open wave will be the first to start. Participants are encouraged to enter this wave if they expect to be in the top 50 finishers. Participants in the open wave will not be eligible for age group awards or USAT rankings. The open division exists so that the age group waves are more friendly, and so that participants who are interested in competing head to head, regardless of age, may do so.

Athena/Clydesdale

You can also select to compete in the Athena/Clydesdale, separated according to body weight instead of age group. The categories are Athena (Female 165 + lbs) or Clydesdale (Male 220 + lbs). Athena/Clydesdale is an option for registration and not required.

Top 3 overall males and females in the open division

There will be mechanics just outside of transition for any last minute needs and with bike pumps for airing up your tires. Once transition closes, you will not be allowed back in so make sure and arrive early.

Bike Check-Out

Bikes will not be allowed out of Transition until the final cyclist has completed the bike course. It is expected that this will be around 11:00 AM. Participants will be allowed back into transition after they finish, but bikes may not be removed from the racks. Please be courteous to your fellow participants.

Relays

Relays can consist of 2 or 3 persons.

All relay team members must visit packet pick up and present photo ID and USAT card. The relay packet will not be released until all members have checked in.

Relay team members will rack together. Team members will wait in the relay pen near the rack. Their team member will return their items to the rack and then meet the next team member in the pen to exchange the chip.
