Be sure to choose the event you are signing for.

Okay, now that we have that out of the way, on to the details. We will be previewing the swim, bike, and run course to various degrees. For the swim, we will suit up, and swim in the lake for about 5 minutes, then out of the lake, and onto the bikes. We will do the full bike course, both sprint and Olympic distances, as long as we have people doing both races - no drop rides. Then we will change to our running gear, and do a short run just to familiarize people with the course, especially “the plunge”.

All told, I expect this to take 2-3 hours. While the event starts at 9, I want participants to treat this a a race practice. That means arriving early so you have time to find parking, set up transition, and be ready to “race” at 9. So make a list of all the things you will need for each part, and bring everything on the list. While we won’t be going as hard or long as a race, you do want to practice your hydration and nutrition. Typically, you want to eat something every 45 minutes, and drink about 20 ounces of liquids per hour.
