MORE RACE INFORMATION –
Indoor Triathlons are based on time rather than distance – meaning you receive points for going further in a specific period of time, not going faster over a fixed distance.
Participants Race Schedule:
Swim 10 Minutes
Transition 1* 10 Minutes
Bike 20 Minutes
Transition 2* 5 Minutes
Run/Walk 15 Minutes
*Transition = Staging Time For Next Stage of Race
Points earned per leg will depend on the position in which you finish each leg. First place receives 1 point, second place receives 2 points and so on. Lowest total point value wins.
All three disciplines count equally toward your final score. Therefore, your rank and score will not be determined until all participants have completed the event.
In the Pool: Athletes will swim for 10 minutes in the pool. Once started, participants are allowed to stop to rest by hanging on the wall, lane line or by standing (if needed). When the horn goes off, all racers must stop and return to the start end of the pool. Participants will be given credit for total lengths completed measured in ½ lengths.
T1 (Transition 1, from the pool to the bike): Participants will be given 10 minutes from the whistle or horn to go to the locker room, change into clothing for cycling/running and get to the cycling area.
On the bike: Participants will bike for 20 minutes. Each bike will have a power console that tracks watts. Participants will be allowed to adjust their own tension throughout the bike portion. Indoor bikes will be available with pedals with toe clips for use with athletic shoes and SPD Pedals. At the end of the ride your average power output will be recorded in watts.
T2 (Transition 2, from the bike to the run): Participants will be allowed 5 minutes to transition from the bikes to the treadmills. Please be courteous of other people as you make your way to the run.
On the run: Participants will run 15 minutes on treadmills. We will make every effort to ensure all treadmills are calibrated accurately. Treadmills will be set at a 0% incline and may be adjusted. Participants must remain on the belt of the treadmill for the entire 15 minutes. If you choose to stop early and step off the belt, your distance will be recorded at the point you stopped. Distance will be recorded in miles rounded down to the nearest .10 of a mile.
Scoring: Volunteers will record the distances of each participant in each event and tabulate the final score. Results will be available online at www.myhealthunlimited.com no later than Tuesday following the event, but we will try to have them online earlier if possible.
Prizes: Top 1 male/female – (overall) Age Group male/female 12-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60+
Start Times: Heats of 10 athletes will start in the pool every 15 minutes 7:00am – 10:30am. Your start time will be based on your heat number. Your heat number and start time will be available Thursday, November 9th.
You must be checked-in at least 20 minutes prior to your start time.
