Race Course Tours/Orientation Friday May 24
Course tours are highly recommended for all participants to familiarize your selves with the course, distances and venue. Although our course has many volunteers to direct athletes, we highly recommend that you come for a look on Friday, as there will be no course tours on our event day. As adult races, volunteers know their own responsibility’s but do not necessarily know the full course overview. Full event overview is given Friday only. Course tours also are the time for you and or your children to ask all of your questions. Tours will detail what to expect race morning, and how to get your self organized. All questions will be answered so you feel confident and ready for the next day!COURSE TOURS WILL BE OFFERED ON THE 24th AT:
4:30, 5:30, 6:30, 7:30by the Race Director. The parking will be open at the Centre for the course tours as well as race day.
UNDERSTANDING THE TIME THAT YOU WILL RACE –
We will close registration at 6pm on Wed May 22. It is at that time when we know how many participants we have. Then we can begin to schedule youngest to oldest (3-5, then 6-7 etc) in waves of 12, with time in-between each wave to keep things organized and course re sets for different ages.
- Last year the last wave entered the pool 2hrs and 38 minutes after the events start time. We expect this year to be similar. When you come to pick up your race kits on May 24, between 4-8 you will be given your exact time to report to the pool deck. The timing is always precise, but we cannot give you times until Friday May 24. Please do not mail in advance for start times.
