    Race Course Tours/Orientation Friday June 15

    Course tours are highly recommended for all participants to familiarize yourselves with the course, distances and venue. 2018 will see some changes to our course due to the delays in current construction. 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.

  • 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 yourself organized. All questions will be answered so you feel confident and ready for the next day!

    COURSE TOURS WILL BE OFFERED AT: 4:30, 5:30, 6:30, 7:30 by the Race Director. The parking will be open at the Centre on Friday June 15.

    UNDERSTANDING THE TIME THAT YOU WILL RACE-  We close registration at 6pm on Wed June 13. 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, which was all the adults entered the pool at 11:18. We expect this year to be similar. When you come to pick up your race kits on Friday June 15, between 4-8 you will be given your exact time to report to the pool deck. The timing is always precise, but we can not give you times until Friday June 15.
