USAT SANCTIONED EVENT
This is a USATriathlon Sanctioned Event. It will follow all USATriathlon rules and guidelines and be officiated. All participants MUST bring a valid photo ID along with a current USATriathlon License. If you do not have a USATriathlon License, you will need to purchase a one-day license on-line here when you register. You must bring either your USATriathlon license or your one-day license, the latter of which will be noted on your e-mail confirmation, in order to get your packet. Each participant will only be allowed to pick up his/her own packet. This will be strictly enforced. You will not be able to purchase an annual license at packet pick-up.
ATHENAS & CLYDESDALES
Registration is available for those wishing to race as an Athena (Female - 150+ lbs.) or a Clydesdale (Male - 200+ lbs.)
For those only wanting to do one or two legs of the race, find some friends and form a RELAY TEAM. Relay teams can have two or three members. All team members must register separately and indicate their TEAM NAME where required. The cost is $35.00 per member.
TRANSITION AREA & GEAR CHECK
THE TRANSITION AREA OPENS AT 5:30 A.M. AND WILL CLOSE AT 6:45 A.M. FOR A MANDATORY PRE-RACE MEETING.
The Transition Area is for race entrants only! Bikes, helmets, and gear will be checked prior to entry into Transition. You will be given a bike number that matches your bib number. It must be attached to your bike where it is readable before you enter Transition. All athletes will be body-marked before entering Transition.
If you ride your bike to the Transition area before the race or back to your vehicle after the race, your helmet must be on and fastened. Failure to do so will result in disqualification. There is also no glass or nudity allowed in Transition.
You cannot take your bike out of Transition once it is racked. No one will be allowed in Transition area before or after the race until the Race Director announces that the Transition Area is open. It is our firm belief that every athlete has the right to unobstructed access to the Transition Area throughout his/her race. The Transition is set up in one lane with racks on both sides. Thus, everyone has to travel the exact same distance through Transition. Spots are not assigned, so if you have a special spot in Transition that you want, you should be there early to get it.
Given the temperatures historically in Oklahoma, this will more than likely NOT be a wetsuit-legal race. You can always bring it though, just in case we get a freeze the night before.
There will one aid station in Transition and one on the Run. Only water will be served at both. Sports drinks, other beverages and food will be available after the race.
AWARDS & SWAG
Standard USAT Age Group awards; plus Athena, Clydesdale,and Relay will be given. A quality, soft cotton t-shirt and race mementos will be included for all participants.
T-shirts will be limited, so register early.
